I was actually working on an Infamous Second Son demake for PS1.
Might finish it one day.

That looks like too many polygons in the lamps to be PS1. They'd probably be made up of two quads crisscrossing one another capped with sprite-based bulbs.

Yup. It was just a proof of concept so I wasn't too focused on polycount. Another error I made was there is no scale (all the objects have no proportion to each other).
All of these would be fixed of course when I try it again.

something similar to this...



I'm trying to remember other open world games on PS1....not counting Spiderman since he just stayed on roofs. There were open world car games like Driver and Auto Destruct.

as far as Infamous' vibrant colors.. maybe a game like

PlayStation game O.N.E.

or Bruce Willis Apocalypse

Sometimes when spectating in GTA Online the environment doesn't load correctly and you see characters driving around the city in the lowest level of detail. It looks like an N64 game and makes me wonder what could've been. :p

His moustache is cracking me up, it looks so out of place. Gotta love MGS1 Snake with old man moustache

I don't know if these count, but for a while I was working on 'demaking' the cast of FFXV for avatars.



I did a couple MGSV avatars too

The real question is, how does one emulate PS1's blocky-ass texture filtering in modern graphics software?
In some software, you can directly change the texture filtering. So instead of bilinear, it would be point sampling or none, giving you a much more raw image.

I don't know if you can emulate the warping effects. That was a defect related to PS1's hardware. I guess you could create a material that randomly displaces the mesh or uv coordinates.

Manual fucking tag!

Loving this. My only suggestion is that you make the box art and typefaces look more 90s.

What the PS1 (and other early 3D engines) did that causes the warping is referred to as affine texture mapping, which uses linear interpolation of the texture coordinates.
