31 Days: Day 13 – Searching for Daylight


Hello everyone and welcome to the 13th installment of 31 Days. What better way to channel that spooky feel than with some good old music relative to nigh immortal serial killers/monsters. Today’s song is



Dead By Daylight: Main theme

This game for me is very hit and miss. It has its moments and parts where it shines very well, and others were it just kind of falls flat. Firstly there isn’t much balance to being a survivor or a killer. It seems survivors have a higher chance of winning regardless, so buffing the killer is something I would like to see. There also seems to be no balance in match making as I’ve been partnered with and pitted against people of a level far higher than mine. That said however the concept is good and the cast of monsters are pretty diverse. Maps seem a bit too similar to me, but still carry a nice atmosphere for the game. There can be a lot of tension for survivors as they run around the map, fixing generators and trying to avoid the killer, at least until you get the hang of things.

The music for DBD( Dead By Daylight) is on point and really does well to highlight impending danger as well as build a sense of dread, tension, paranoia,  and fear within the player. The transitions for the music are also nice and fitting. To be honest I wasn’t expecting this kind of care to be taken in this game, nor for there to be a variety of pieces involved. While each one is well deserving of a quick listen, the main theme should suffice for this blog, otherwise I might be here for a while.

As it stands I can only recommend DBD for only the most devoted of horror fans seeking a bit of thrill this month. Take that for what you will, and as always enjoy your day.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
