Holstin was announced a little while back, but this showing from the recent Day of the Devs showcase caught our eye. This game is an indie survival horror with a retro presentation style and a seriously cool camera gimmick.
Set in 90s Poland, Holstin is a game that combines story, puzzles, and action as you deal with the nasty goings on and explore the world. The game's best trick, though, is how it changes perspective; most of the gameplay will be viewed from an isometric view, but when you're in combat and aim your weapon, it'll transition smoothly to a third-person, over-the-shoulder style, allowing you to deal with imminent threats up close and personal.
Inspired by Resident Evil and Silent Hill, it looks really interesting, but obviously, this one cool idea can't carry the whole experience. We're curious to see whether Holstin is able to provide a good story on top of its neat presentational ideas. It's coming to PlayStation when it launches, but we don't have a date just yet.
