Deadlight's 'Fear Yourself' trailer is pretty fantastic


12:30 PM on 05.25.2012



Deadlight has gotten a fair few Destructoid editors hot under the collar, and it's hardly surprising -- the game looks great! One benefit of the zombie saturation in pop culture is that games are trying to find unique ways to keep the undead feeling fresh -- leading to titles like The Walking Dead and this sidescrolling bit of intrigue. 

The newest trailer, "Fear Yourself," looks terrific, and makes the game look far more engaging than your average scroller. Clearly, The Walking Dead source material is an influence, but it looks like it could easily stand out as its own individual thing. Either way, I'm very interested, and can't wait to give it a go.

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
