Motive’s new Dead Space remake may look a million times better than the original, but a modder has figured out a way to lure gamers back to Visceral Games’ original 2008 classic. ReverseEngineeringGamer has released the Dead Space (2008) First Person Mod, a mod that, as its name might imply, allows players to experience the sci-fi horror game from a more intimate, even scarier (read: can’t see the RIG health bar), perspective. According to ReverseEngineeringGamer, this mod took a good amount of time to create, but it can be installed now through the use of Cheat Engine, a program that most PC gamers should already be familiar with.

From a NexusMods post:

The core of this mod took a little over 5 days to create

The fine tuning of this mod is what took several months; to locate functions, compare variables, stabilize pointers, write bug free scripts, play-test, etc

Although initially started out of curiosity as to see what else I can do other than create a free cam and player fly mod for Dead Space (2008), this quickly grew into a first person mod project

Admittedly there were some frustrating times while making this mod, but overall I had a lot of fun creating this project

I hope that you guys enjoy playing/using this mod as much as I had fun making it

Other additional information are located in the read-me

From the read me file:
