Curious as to how changes in the indie scene can affect a triple-A game? Our editor-in-chief Kris Graft has been all over Resident Evil VII, and according to him, Capcom’s latest entry in the long-running horror series takes more inspiration from indie games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Outlast than it does earlier games in the series.

If you want to know what that means, and why it’s important that AAA developers keep an eye on advances in the indie scene, you can watch Kris explain this analysis today at 3PM EST on the Gamasutra Twitch channel, where he’ll be streaming the first hour of Resident Evil VII. 

It should be a fun time (especially since you’ll get to watch Kris scream in horror every few minutes). While you’re at it, be sure to subscribe to the Gamasutra Twitch channel for more gameplay commentary, developer interviews, and editor roundtables.
