Jump scares enter a new dimension in Daylight

, | News

Daylight, the upcoming procedurally generated haunted hospital game from Zombie Studios, will allow people watching streams of the game to dictate scary events through the Twitch chat interface. Viewers can type something like “boo” into chat and the game will create a sound effect or other event to scare the player. Publisher Atlus says that they will leave it to fans to discover all the special chat texts, and that the words will be on timers so viewers can’t spam them. According to the developers, the feature is meant to give a greater sense of interaction between streamers and viewers. I’m going to type “Frankenberry” and “Ke$ha” over and over while I watch a stream.

Daylight launches on PC and PlayStation 4 on April 8th.

Daylight hits all the horror tropes in one trailer

, | News

That’s the new trailer for Daylight from Zombie Studios. It seems to check all the boxes for the horror genre. Abandoned hospital? Check. Jump scares? Yup. Limited lighting that depends on the player scavenging for batteries? You better believe it! The game’s claim to infamy may be having Jessica Chobot, formerly an embedded reporter on the Normandy SR-2 in Mass Effect 3, credited as the writer. It does bring one new concept to the table in that the game features procedurally mixed levels so the layout of the hospital is different with each playthrough. Maybe that will be enough to get it past all the bad cliches.
