Remember the 80’s? Deadlight is an upcoming XBLA title and its developer, Tequila Works, promises an authentic 80’s experience. What, you didn’t hear about the great zombie apocalypse of ‘86?
Although I’d usually say no to yet another zombie game, the gameplay trailer shows more platforming and avoidance than simple run and gun. Narrative Director, Antonio Rojano, lists Another World and the original Prince of Persia as inspiration. It’s not from the 80’s but I think Shadow Complex might be a more modern example of what Deadlight could become.
Have a look at the first developer diary of Deadlight. They have words to say.
