About This Game

Step back in time with "Back in 1995," a homage to the survival horror and mystery games that defined the original PlayStation era. This game meticulously recreates the nuances of a period in gaming history that's close to being forgotten.

Immerse yourself in a surreal yet tangible world, where you are compelled to solve the enigma of your daughter's disappearance, the calamity that befell the city, and the reason for your long-overdue return.

Conceived as a passion project by indie developer Takaaki Ichijo, "Back in 1995" aims to capture the distinct emotional resonance he experienced with his early gaming adventures on the PlayStation and Sega Saturn.


  • Lose yourself in the world of retro 3D visuals, complete with low-res models, texture warping, CRT emulation, and fixed CCTV-style camera angles.
  • Experience the mystery genre anew, navigated through an old school retro user interface and tank controls.
  • Investigate a barren urban landscape set in the year 1995, abundant with hints about its bygone days.
  • Engage with a roster of complex characters, each with mysterious intentions that you may never fully understand.
  • Unravel the hidden secrets about you, your daughter, and the city's past.
