Cult Classic “Alisa” Brings Retro Survival Horror To Consoles

Elite Royal Agent Alisa – hot on the heels of a notorious thief in a fantastical world somewhat reminiscent of the 1920s – finds herself suddenly whisked away to an old, bizarre, Victorian-style mansion. Haunted by the by the mansion’s strange, mechanized doll-like inhabitants and trapped in a world upside-down, can you survive the dollhouse… and even more so, escape with your humanity intact?

Publisher and expert porting studio Top Hat Studios, Inc., and developer Casper Croes are pleased to announce the worldwide, long awaited launch on consoles of cult-classic 90’s homage survival horror, Alisa. Releasing today, Alisa is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and the Xbox family of consoles. The game launches with a 15% discount on Switch and Xbox, and a 15% discount on Playstation systems for PS+ subscribers. A free demo will also be available on all systems starting at launch.

A fan favorite amongst retro, low-poly and survival horror enthusiasts, Alisa is a genuine throwback to PS1 and N64 style gaming – complete with pre-rendered backgrounds, a whopping 480p resolution (with the ability to render in an even more amazing 240p being technically investigated), and fixed camera angles. For player comfort, the choice between various schemes of classic tank controls or modern control styles is available in-game. The console release is the Developer’s Cut, which includes all content and updates for the PC version along with new options for accessibility, including new control mappings.
