A downloadable game for Windows

"Forget about shooting them in the body, you gotta cut off the limbs. Grab a cutter anything like that. Cut them apart!"


Dead Space Demake has everything you want and more, from necromorph limb dismemberment to affine texture mapping errors. 

You've played Dead Space (2008) and you've played Dead Space (2023) it's time to soak in the horrid vibes of Dead Space (1998)


Thanks for waiting! I've been working on this for a lot longer than I planned and the end product is probably shorter than you expect but I hope you have fun playing it. This project was mostly a way for me to learn Unreal and the PS1 aesthetic so look forward to what I'll be putting together in the future.


The updated version changes some settings to make the PS1 effects more noticeable. It also has an FPS lock that can be set to 60 or 25. The FPS lock should fix the problem some people had with not being able to move. The 25 FPS lock will fix the problem of the game feeling too smooth by recreating the feel of playing a game made by an overambitious development team trying to wring as much detail out of an aging console.

probably the best Demake I tried

Uff awesome Dead Space Demake, is like playing the Dead Space Remake but  very low graphics XDD

This was awesome! Thank you for making it. Dead Space is one of my all-time favorites and I'm in love with your PSX art here. Brilliant stuff!


I don't know  why but my gun stop reloading  @ 23:33 but overall it was still fun and I completed it

I dont know why you put in so much effort for such a short game but its better then the main game somehow and i love it if you could possible make this the full game and make it cost the same price and someway give the money to electronic arts then do it

No way, do not feed EA any more money than they already have!


I cannot get over how good this was! It played so well and looked amazing, I would so enjoy the entire game in this charming PSX style. Necromorphs have always freaked me out more than anything else and now I know they are absolutely horrifying in any graphical style thanks to you.

You are incredibly talented and I am looking forward to seeing whatever you make next. Thank you for taking the time to create this!


A reinvention of the aforementioned game, if it was created in 1999. Brumley managed to capture the same creepiness and vibe of the original, even while relaying on the limitations of the PS1 era. Short, creepy, and intense, an absolute recommendation of a game.

You can check my full walkthrough on Steam Deck by pressing the link below:


I'll start saying that for a reimagine PS1 version of Dead Space, you did an amazing job! I tried to play it before, and it had some controllers bugs, and then they were fixed. There are still some bugs here in there, that can take you out of the experience. I fell of the map, and got unable to reload at some point. It can get frustrating. But once you pass those bugs, the game is quite enjoyable =) Good Job!

Everything is extremely dark, I cant see anything

Amazing Game,Good Job


This game looks amazing! I loved the older style vibe it gave off and wish it was a bit longer!



DOES work on Steam Deck,  ONLY if you edit the launch options to "Force the use of a specific Compatability tool" and set it to "Proton: Experimental."

Also has an installer that needs to be run the first time playing


This is incredible! I had a smile on my face the entire time. The graphics set the mood exactly as they need to, the workarounds for cutscenes is brilliant. Even got a spook out of me with a necro jumpscare. Runs smoother than my '08 install.

I'd love to support a more ambitious project, whether that's a larger demake (DS Mobile, anyone?) or a new idea!

Wow, that is impressive!  Really captured the feel of it.  Might I suggest you take the engine for this and create a new adventure?  Just thinking quite a few of these fan projects get shutdown and I would hate to see something so well done dissappear.

question: is this literally the whole game remade in ps1? if so cool man you should have some sort of payment that must have taken forever

haha nah only the first little bit of the game.

It's go blackout after I get into the control station of the internal train of the Ishimura...how can I fix it?



A return to the golden standar--AUHHNECROMOPHARGE


Honestly, I thought that the game would be short, but as it turned out, I was wrong. Nice recreation of the game from modern graphics to PS1 time graphics. I was even scared of Necromorphs. If there is a remake, then why not make a demake


Im a huge fan of dead space so i had to play this. Game felt fantastic and stayed true to the OG, but also felt like it's own thing. Really well done ! 

I made a video on the game if you're interested :)



Esse foi um dos jogos mais bem feitos que joguei nos últimos dias,  foi perfeito em tudo tudinho tudo


This is excellent a lot of love went into this. 


Dude this ROCKED!!!

I just got done playing Dead Space (2008) for the first time (wanted to play it before the remake), and HOLY CRAP this was so faithful to the original! 

I quickly slipped into the rhythm and patterns I developed playing through Dead Space, and this game just felt RIGHT.

Movement felt right, shooting felt right... enemies, doors, Kinesis... you nailed it.

Props man, inspirational work, keep it up!!


I am nothing short of amazed with what you were able to do with this. lol I mention in the vid multiple times, but I'd play through a full game version if it was ever made available. Absolutely amazing job. The sound design, lighting, combat, and world building all screamed Dead Space and yet somehow it all added up to something new and terrifying. Looking forward to your next project! :D

This game a lot of fun holy cow! It actually got me thinking if I should play the real series since I haven't done that yet. We will see haha!


I had so much fun playing this so thanks a lot for making it! Scared the shit out of me just as much as the og maybe more lol. 

Top game. I have not seen good and high-quality demakes of games for a long time, such as Half-life 2 Classic, but this is a very good game in which the locations, although they are reduced, but at the same time they feel the spirit and atmosphere of the original and feel some fear, although Dead Space doesn't scare me anymore. In all locations you can see the original ones here, which is very cool. The only thing is that the location with the elevator and the power machine looks strange and lacks elements at the top when you exit the elevator, and also Isaac himself does not have a kick, which is sad. Well, it's also sad that the game is so short. BUT. I would really like to see a full version of the demake sometime in the future, if possible and go through it again. In general, I really liked the game, definitely top

There's a mobile Dead Space out there, do you think it would be possible to demake that in the same style


i like it!


Nice demake!

Nicely done!  Very awesome Dead Space concept



cool game idea


this is nice game, my pc is broke i can't play real dead  space ,but i can play it with your game 

just curious; when opening, it asked me to download a U4 thing? just needed to confirm the safety of i


Great stuff, you've done a great job dude!
camera does slightly clip through the walls but other than that i really like it


I loved it playing this game thanks for making this game it was good.


really great recreation and loads of fun but i really wish there was an auto save though cause i died and had to start all over


Thanks for the game

Jogo bem legal

This was a really fun PS1 version of Dead Space! Definitely brings the same dread I felt from the original. Such a fantastic game. The turning for me was a bit janky but otherwise a very fun game! Great Job!
