We’re just days away from Lorelei and the Laser Eyes, as the game is set to arrive on Switch May 16th, 2024. This one has been a long-time coming, but it’s sure to be an adventure that many won’t forget. Turns out it’ll also be an outing that will remind longtime gamers of some very iconic franchises in gaming history.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Simogo co-founder Simon Flesser opened up on two major sources of inspiration for Lorelei and the Laser Eyes. While the game might not be a survival horror affair, it has certainly pulled a number of elements from some of the genre’s greatest names.

“I replayed the early Resident Evil games and the early Silent Hill games. I thought, ‘It’s a shame that there’s so many zombies and s— walking around that you just constantly try to avoid.’ I realize that it’s a very needed ingredient in those games, of course, but I wanted to capture that same feeling of being in the same [setting] if you could cut away all those things.”
