Deadlight, a survival horror game and xbox exclusive, is making it’s way to Xbox Live Arcade sometime this summer. Launched in 2010 by Tequila Works and brought together a wide array of development talents; Blizzard, Pyro Studios, Weta Digital, Trumph Studios, MercurySteam, and SCE Europe.
Set in 1986, you play Randall Wayne as he makes his way along the American West Coast. Much like I Am Alive you are forced to simply “Survive”. Both games resembling a dark and post apocalyptic word where you must make your way through the devastation that is now the reality you live. The only noticeable difference is what you must “survive”. In I Am Alive you had to mostly survive the elements; scavenging and collecting materials, all while trying to protect yourself from people trying to take what is yours and of course the environment. In Deadlight you will notice it is more a side scroller type of game and you are being chased by what appears to be undead zombie like beings. In reality your world was ravaged by an unknown disease causing people to transform into “Killer automatons”.
So if Survival games are your thing then Deadlight may just be that little arcade gem you have been waiting for. Check out the Official Trailer below!
