Deadlight brings zombie-filled puzzle platforming to XBLA


5:00 PM on 01.20.2012



Here we have a teaser trailer for Deadlight, a puzzle platformer set across a zombie-infested West Coast in 1986. Microsoft Studios is publishing this project by Madrid-based Tequila Works, a studio with its fair share of industry vets.

Unfortunately, the game won't be coming out until summer. (Summer of Arcade, anyone?) There's not much to go on at the moment, though a selection of screenshots were provided. I wasn't so keen on the premise initially, but the presentation is pulling me in. Consider me very eager to find out more about Deadlight.

XBLA zombie scroller Deadlight gets promising trailer

Deadlight, which our own Dale North calls, "The prettiest zombie game ever," has a new trailer out, showcasing the gameplay of this atmospheric sidescroller.  What's to say? It looks absolutely terrific, and I can see why Dale's so hyped for it. Of course, I want to get my hands on it personally before declaring it thoroughly spermworthy, but I love what I see.  What do you reckon?more
