Dying Light Summary
Techland is a polish based company that's known for developing titles like Call of Juarez, Dead Island and more recently Dying Light, although it's just announced today that it will be entering the publishing market.
Techland has been developing games for over 20 years, even working as a distributor and publisher in Central and Eastern Europe, and now it feels the time is right to move into global publishing with all the experience it's been able to gain through those years.
I was absolutely shocked by how much I enjoyed Dying Light last year. It’s an open-world zombie game! Three out of every four titles released these days are open-world zombie games! Yet its unique take on parkour survival meant that it hit for me in a way similar titles didn’t.
So, has Dying Light become too easy? Techland has announced one of the upcoming features of Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition: the Nightmare mode, which "restricts overpowered Easter Egg weapons, introduces XP penalties for dying, ramps up the difficulty of enemies, and more."
Techland has announced that the developer tools for the game have been expanded so modders can now make their own multiplayer maps including co-op and deathmatching gameplay modes. The update is free.
Steam user Elimina has painstakinglythe entire first level of Mirror's Edge in Dying Light, which makes a lot of sense, since both games heavily rely on parkour, though replacing trigger-happy security with flesh devouring zombies.
