Resident Evil VIllage - Camera and Controls Settings - Brightness.jpg
The game itself is very dark. Change the brightness up to halfway between the middle and the right-most end if you do not wish to be startled by enemies emerging from the shadows.

However, if you want to fully immerse yourself and experience the surreal psychological horror of Resident Evil, we recommend to set the minimum brightness until you cannot see the pattern.
