Resident Evil, known in Japan as Bio Hazard, is a video game of survival and terror developed by Capcom originally for PlayStation in 1996, and is the first game in the Resident Evil series. It is Capcom's best-selling debut game, with sales of more than 8.5 million copies worldwide. The plot of the game follows Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, members of an elite working group known as S.T.A.R.S., as they investigate the outskirts of Raccoon City after the disappearance of their team members. Soon they are trapped in a mansion infested with zombies and other monsters. The player, who has chosen to play as Chris or Jill at the beginning of the game, must explore the mansion to discover its secrets.
Conceived by the producer Tokuro Fujiwara as a new version of his previous horror game Sweet Home, the development of Resident Evil was directed by Shinji Mikami. It went through several redesigns, initially conceived as a Super NES game in 1993, then as a PlayStation game in the first person completely 3D in 1994 and, finally, a third person game with pre-rendered backdrops. The game consists largely of third-person action with an additional emphasis on inventory management, exploration and problem solving. Resident Evil establishes many conventions that are seen later in the series, including the control scheme, the inventory system, the storage system and the use of 3D models superimposed on pre-rendered backgrounds.
On July 24, 1998, when a series of strange murders occurred outside the city of Raccoon City, in the Midwest, the Raccoon City Police Department, S.T.A.R.S. Team is assigned to investigate. After contact with Bravo Team is lost, Alpha Team is sent to investigate his disappearance. The Alpha Team locates the Bravo Team's broken helicopter and lands at the site, where they are suddenly attacked by a group of monstrous dogs, killing team member Joseph Frost. After Team Alpha helicopter pilot Brad Vickers panics and takes off on his own, the remaining members of the team (Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker and Barry Burton) are forced to seek refuge in a nearby abandoned mansion .
