Blacklight: Retribution developer Zombie Studios has announced a new game powered by Unreal Engine 4, Daylight. The game is a first person survival horror game in which the player takes on the role of a woman who finds herself alone in an abandoned building.
The story is being written by former G4TV hostess Jessica Chobot, who recently did voice work as Diana Allers in Mass Effect 3.
The game's story is up to the player as well, according to creative director Jared Gerritzen. “The player doesn’t have a name. We don’t give any backstory on the player. She literally just wakes up and you need to find your way through, but there’s a lot of story elements,” he stated, “Different players will have a totally different experience. You’re essentially a rat in a cage, but the cage is an asylum and it’s scary as hell. You need to find your way out, and each time you do it it’s completely different.”
The game will be released on Steam in 2013, and will be a $19.99 USD title.
