Gamers love to be scared, and over the past couple of years, the indie gaming community has produced some of the best horror titles known to the digital world.
A couple of months ago, Zombie Studios announced a psychological horror game called ‘Daylight’, and instantly became the talk of indie horror fans. The game was initially announced to be in development for PC only, but game publisher Atlus has taken quite an interest in the title, and has officially announced that it will be coming to PlayStation 4 sometime in 2014.
‘Daylight’ is a first-person horror experience that has players trapped inside a mysterious run-down asylum armed with only a cellphone. Powered by the new Unreal 4 engine, ‘Daylight’ features a randomly generated experience, offering a new layout and new rooms with each play through. While trying to escape, players must track down clues, which also appear in different locations each time you play, in order to learn the history of the asylum and the reasons why you woke up there in the first place.
The game is very similar to the indie-horror hit ‘Amnesia’. Players can interact with the environment around them using realistic physics to open doors, closets, drawers, and so on. Combat is definitely not the focus of ‘Daylight’, and players will often be faced with situations where stealth is key, and running away and hiding is the trick to surviving.
‘Daylight’ will be released on PC sometime toward the end of 2013.
