‘Never Take For Granted What You Have Played In Zombie Games’

Deadlight is a side-scrolling survival game set in a zombie-infested, ruined Cold War 1980s. It’s inspired by writer Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.” It plays a bit like Prince of Persia and Another World.

Deadlight was also the last game I saw at PAX East and one I had to shoot video of in a rush, before catching a ride home. So, please forgive the bad camera angle and the rough audio. I think the beauty of the game still manages to shine through.

Thank you to Raul Rubio Munarriz, creative director of development studio Tequila Works, for talking a hurried, harried reporter through the game, while another PAX East attendee got a few minutes at the controls of the game.

Deadlight (official site here) will be out this summer for Xbox Live Arcade. It’s not your ordinary zombie game. Melancholy as it is, it was a beautiful close to my PAX East.

Good game, good show.
