Interactive Dying Light video makes you afraid of the dark

Dying light

In a sea of games featuring day/night cycles, Dying Light has actually made it important. Unlike other titles where visibility is slightly reduced, or enemies spawn a bit more, you will become afraid of the dark all over again in Dying Light. A new interactive video shows why.

Dying Light’s Life and Death in the Quarantine Zone interactive story can be seen in full over here. In it, you can see the effects of daytime on the zombies as compared to nighttime, simply by pressing Z to make it become night. It’s really quite cool to see the same environments and dangers completely change when the sun goes down. Here’s a teaser trailer for the interactive story:

See, this isn’t hyping a game before release. If this video had come out before the game launched (okay, I know the physical version is delayed but you know what I mean) it would have been part of the hype machine. But now we know that the game has some flaws but is still a fun experience if it’s your type of thing. I like that the interactive story lets people see just how crazy and out of hand things can get once the sun goes down.

It almost reminds me of the silliness at last night’s Dying Light event. Again a big thanks to all our awesome community members who attended – you made the event more fun and actually played the game on the stands they set up for us. Also, some of you even hugged Geoff. Well done!

      is that because the dark has become white and gold and not the standard blue and black?

    I’m already scared of the dark in games. I’ve played Stalker games.

      Fock, Stalker was amazing (deeply flawed though)…Wish we would see more.

    I saw someone playing as a zombie hunting 4 other people… I don’t know if Evolve’s going to keep it’s players with that mode.

    Why you ask?

    Because… upgradable ZOMBIES that basically fly across the map… that’s why!

    Speaking of afraid of the dark.
    I tried Damned last night. Buggy at the best of times, but man can that thing be scary.
    Poor guy who voice chatted with me had to put up with my screams and yelps.

        It likes to crash on random occasions, but it’s not bad. You just fire it up again.
        Being the monster isn’t nearly as fun as being a defenseless human with a torch, trying to stick together until the monster appears and everyone runs in different directions yelling: “Every man for himself!”
        When it is fun being the monster though is when you watch people freak the f out when you suddenly appear in the room with them ๐Ÿ˜€

    The one thing I didn’t get to see last night was what happens to the zombies at night.
    I still enjoyed the game and found that the Be the Zombie mode was fun but really really needs to have multiplayer access to make it a true challenge.

          im not sure about the game, but one of the actors was dressed up as 1. Thought it was the best one there.

      After a few drinks both myself and the friend I invited gave him and Zoe a hug.
      The thing I noticed most at the time is that Zoe has cold shoulders. Literally cold.

    Last night was really good fun. Seeing a really big bald guy running and screaming like a deranged women was slightly unnerving. Was really cool meeting the Lazygamer crowd, thanks again guys!

      I saw him at the back while we were all gathering and he was practically lying on the ground talking to the fence.
      I knew then that he would be responsible for unleashing the zombie plague upon us.
