    UE4 horror game from Condemned and FEAR devs. Written by Jessica Chobot.

    Daylight is a horror game featuring a procedurally-generated environment. With only the light of a cell phone to guide them, players will navigate the halls of a dark building as a woman who’s just woken up. Every experience will be different as rooms are randomly generated, and players will only learn about the game’s story via clues they discover as they explore.

    IGN article, includes screenshots. Made by Zombie studios, who got a healthy injection of ex-Monolith staff over the last couple of years. I see the guys in charge of FEAR's ghosts are on board lol

    At DICE, IGN had a chance to speak with Zombie creative director and studio head Jared Gerritzen as well as Jessica Chobot, who wrote the game.

    Disclaimer: Jessica Chobot is an industry personality who hosts The Weekly 'Wood, Strategize and Mix’d Reviews for IGN and works independently as a voice actor and television host for G4, Microsoft, and more. Jessica does not write about games for IGN and will not be involved in our coverage of Daylight.




    I had a dream starring Chobot a couple of weeks ago and then I was in love with her for a couple of hours.

    Anyway, Daylight will be released via Steam, as Valve has allowed Zombie to circumvent the Steam Greenlight process. The game will cost $20 or less and will be released some time in 2013.

    Gerritzen explained that Zombie will be taking an episodic approach to future Daylight content. “After we release Daylight, it’s going to be considered Chapter 1,” he said. “And Chapter 2 and more chapters will come out, and each chapter will not be a reboot or anything. It’ll just be more systems that get added to the bucket and more story elements and all that.”

    Sounds like a really interesting concept. I'll keep an eye out.

    Although, the FEAR devs never really struck me as being able to do anything "scary", and I suspect that is a big part of this game.

    Considering the best part of FEAR was shooting things, I dunno how it'll play out on that front, but the combination of people forming the dev team as well as the idea makes me at least a little bit interested. I await to see more information!

    The screenshots remind me of Condemned filthy atmosphere, and that's a good thing.

    Seems like a worthwhile idea. I like procedural generation, but I'm not sure it will add much if the clues reveal the same story again and again. Maybe the story isn't the point. I do have a fondness for Zombie.

    Usually when I experience this it's about women I've dated or wanted to, uh... date, but when I was in high school I dreamed I was in love with an obnoxious, kind of fugly classmate I really didn't care for at all, and the feeling lingered for days.

    Isn't Chobot the one from ME3 that you can have sex with? That alone induces horror to me. So well done.

    Well as far as licking things to get famous goes, that's decent.

    haha, you guys always look at the bright sight. But you are right in a way. I blame the stupid nerds that cater to attention whores.

    She seems like a nice enough girl, but she can be rather irksome at times. I remember seeing a feature where she lamented the fate of women in the industry, how they were only valued for their looks and were constantly the victim of sexual comments on everything they post. I'm sorry, but you don't get to launch your career by licking a psp, then complain about being treated different from the boys. That is not how it works.

    Actually, that seems like it gives her a pretty damned good excuse to complain. Your summation of her agument perfectly fits that

    She felt that women in the industry were only valued for their looks, so she played them up to get given an opportunity. And she thinks that is messed up.

    And honestly, I kind of agree with her if this thread is any indication. Rather than discuss the game, people feel the need to call her a whore and keep making sexual comments.

    Oh please. One guy called her an attention whore. That's quite a leap you made there. And don't go about trying to say she licked a psp ironically. "Oh, do you see that? Come and see the sexism inherent in the system! "

    I never saw the actual PSP licking, but I can, without a shadow of a doubt, say it fell into one of three categories:

    1. Her employers told her to do it because her employers wanted something sexy. She did it because she wanted to keep her job
    2. She did it to get noticed. This is an industry where the consumer-base are notoriously mysoginistic assholes. She felt that her best approach would be to pander to them until she was in a better position to try and argue for change.
    3. She herself did it because she wanted attention and has since "learned the error of her ways" as it were. I do love how we have become a culture that hates people for ever changing their mind or revising their opinion on something.


    And let's just take a look at this thread. As of now, we have 15 posts (16 with this)

    Post 1: Implies a sexy dream about her
    Post 8: Isn't she the one you boink in ME3?
    Post 10: She licks consoles
    Post 11: Awkward joke about oral sex
    Post 12: Calling her a whore
    Post 13: Complaining about her having licked stuff and basically calling her a whiner (and essentially saying "She asked for it" to dismiss her argument. Pinball!)


    6/15 posts are comments of a sexual variety and absolutely nobody really has talked about her writing career or her commentary on games and the like.

    So this thread makes for a weak, but credible, case for the simplification of her argument. And countless others kind of make for STRONG cases for the simplification of her argument.

    So this is now a thread about a woman who made a joke photo that the internet of course spread like herpes and how it's sexist?

    I have trouble keeping up with these plot twists sometimes.

    I see a problem: random generated content is good if you game has big replayability, and the randomness is not the content (the content being something else).

    But a mistery game? would be something that you only play once?

    Anyway we got that "elevator" mod for garris mod, that was great. So maybe this is a cool idea.

    And if this thread were about a male figure in the gaming industry whose biggest claim to fame was posting a picture of himself sticking his tongue in the disc slot of a Wii, do you think nobody would be making any sexual jokes or remarks, or calling him an attention whore?
