Dead Island is a survival horror action adventure game set in the fictional Banoi in Papua New Guinea. Gameplay focuses on melee combat, character progression, and weapon customization. Players may take the role of one of four individuals staying or working at the Royal Palms Resort as they fight their way through a sudden zombie outbreak to try to get to safety. Zombies have fully rendered muscle, allowing a dynamic multi-layer injury system. The game is based on the Chrome Engine 5, which dynamically generates weather systems. A short film released based on Dead Island garnered significant attention for its use of emotional storytelling.
