Citizens of Gallowmere, can you sense it?
The hint of a cool breeze, the leaves starting to shift colors, the faint smell of pumpkin spice… that’s right, we’re less than three months away from October 25 and the launch of MediEvil on PlayStation 4!

One of the key aspects of remaking a 20-year old PlayStation classic such as MediEvil was getting into the heads of the original development team.
“Our credo was: Do what they did, and don’t change anything unless you have a good reason to change it.” said Jeff Nachbauer, Executive Producer on the project. “Often times you’d go in the code, see a strange design decision and think ‘Why did they do that? It doesn’t make a lot of sense.’ And then you go on the journey of trying to solve challenges further in the game and ultimately release — ‘That’s exactly why they did it. I get it now.’
The team even went so far as to research the music the original developers were listening to in the days of the original PlayStation. According to Jeff, “There’s comments in the original source code of what music the developers were listening to at the time they were first making the game, which helped us understand what they were getting at when they first coded that area.”
MediEvil is out on October 25 for $29.99, so make sure to preorder at PlayStation Store, and we’ll be back with more news in the upcoming weeks!
