About Deadlight

About this game

The world has ended. There is no hope. No new beginning. Only the survivors. DEADLIGHT follows the journey of Randall Wayne, a man searching for his family across Seattle during the aftermath of a 1980s event that has decimated life on earth. This visually stunning Cinematic Survival Platformer will challenge you to run, jump, climb, and struggle for your life as you look for answers and the ones you love.

Key Features:

  • A beautiful deadly world where a misstep means death. Sharpen your survival instinct and learn to turn the environment from foe to ally. In this hopeless world, an ordinary man, Randall Wayne, will reveal himself as a natural-born survivor.
  • Think. Mindless shooting is never a good idea: there are much more walking corpses than bullets. Be smart and avoid direct confrontations whenever you can.
  • A suggestive world of darkness. 3D highly detailed models and environments mixed with 2D sidescroller old-school gameplay to create a vintage 2.5D Cinematic Platformer. Unable to escape from the horror of this dying world, Randall Wayne's journey will lead him to Seattle, in a strange search beyond his own survival.
  • HD graphics that enhance the immersion and atmosphere of a dead world
  • New NIGHTMARE difficulty mode from the 80s. Totally rad!
  • Tons of extras, making of videos, unreleased concept art and more!

Sidescrolling silhouette adventure in a zombie world. Short and sweet :)

A really awesome 2.5D platformer with a really emotional story told in a post apocalyptic setting. If you're good at platformers, this game is actually quite linear and short, but the experience more than makes up for it. Game slowly introduces you to new mechanics and gimmicks without feeling too pushy, its an easy game to breeze through and you've got some pretty easy achievements to show for it.

It's a solid game, but I didn't feel like it had a lot of replay value. Once I played through it once, I was pretty much done. But it was good, especially given the price, and I have no problems recommending it.
