Deadlight is a new, unique 2d puzzle platformer that takes players back to 1986, months after a deadly plague has decimated the country side. As Randall Wayne, a park ranger trying to find his family amidst, players must navigate a ruined landscape full of the ravenous undead, using the environment to their advantage.
Check out Susan Arendt's full preview of Deadlight here . The game is due out for the Xbox 360 later this summer.
Susan Arendt: Though you'll encounter plenty of the undead, this is no zombie shooter; Randall is an ordinary guy and he has no interest in coming any closer to his enemies than he absolutely has to. Running away is frequently the best option, but when you must make a stand, you'll concentrate on using the environment to your best advantage. In one section, I dropped a bunch of heavy boxes through some rotten floorboards, leaving a gaping pit for the lemming-like zombies to follow each other into. In another section, I taunted some zombies into shambling towards me - and right into the electrified puddle that stood between us.
