Product Description

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.

In an apocalyptic world where existence is futile, a solitary man treks the American west coast. Survival is the measure of all. In an alternate vision of the 1980s, a mysterious disease has decimated mankind, transforming people into killer automatons. During his odyssey, Randall Wayne will find other survivors, men and women who are no more than ghostly remnants of a fading society, a flame in the desert fighting extinction.

Key Features:

  • Deadlight is a narrative driven survival platformer set in the post- apocalyptic 80s devastated by a zombie epidemic.
  • A unique graphical approach with 3D backlit silhouettes increasing immersion with a continuous notion of danger.
  • Survive above all and face your fears.
  • Solve obstacles, dodge zombies, set traps and manipulate the environment. Escape any way you can!
  • Combat is always an option, albeit a poor one

Requires Steam Client to activate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric but Frustrating January 25, 2013
Graphics in this game are outstanding. The backgrounds are detailed and atmospheric. The use of shadows is great also, especially the way the characters are all silhouettes.

Deadlight has a solid story in a tired genre with good voice acting even if the main character is a bit of a cliche tough guy.

As I proceeded through the game I had a lot of fun with the puzzles. There are times when you have no weapons and have to find ways to defeat traps/puzzles by using the zombies instead of fighting them, which is interesting.

There isn't really a lot of combat if you're looking for an action game. You will spend most of your time evading or running from enemies. Weapon selection is limited and at times non-existent. I thought it worked well for this game, since the game design doesn't require you to fight that often.

Deadlight is full of Steam achievements, some of which are obtained just by reaching checkpoints, so it regularly rewards you with a sense of accomplishment.

On the downside, the game can be frustrating. There's a lot of trial and error. Sometimes the color scheme of the game can make it difficult to discern certain objects. I fell through floors I thought were there a few times. On the plus side, checkpoints are very frequent, so you can afford some trial and error. Save points are frequent too, but if you quit the game, be prepared to repeat a few checkpoints, which is really no big deal.

Here's the MAJOR problem. This game is a port from XBOX Arcade, so it was designed with a 360 controller in mind. The conversion to keyboard and mouse is not pleasant. I eventually just gave up after COMPLETELY failing to outrun a helicopter through an obstacle course about 25 times.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much a train wreck May 23, 2013
By O'mally
Deadlight started out very strong - the visuals are amazing, and the atmosphere draws you in immediately. The game starts out with some interesting, if not particularly difficult, environmental puzzles and had a lot of promise. Unfortunately it didn't take long for the game to squander that potential. Deadlight may do a lot of things right, but it does far more wrong.

First and foremost, the controls are absolutely terrible, with the game quite often just not responding to button presses in a timely manner. This is fine early in the game when the pace is slow and you're only up against 2 or 3 enemies. But later in the game the pace is quickened to a punishing degree, requiring you to execute actions very quickly or at precise moments. Many times I had to replay sections a dozen or more times because of the sluggish controls. It's gotten so bad that I've actually given up on the game. I'm literally 5 minutes from the end and I've just stopped because I can't take it any more - I've had to replay this latest section about 25 times now. I've actually gotten past it 3 times, but each time I died soon after because of the sluggish controls and before the next save point.

Normally, with such a small portion of the game left, I'd fight my way to the end if for nothing more than sheer stubbornness, but this is where the rest of Deadlight's shortcomings rear their heads. Beyond the bad controls, there are several other technical issues with the game, such as drastic frame rate drops, which often occur at times when you really need the game to be responsive. There's also a sound bug which causes about half the cut-scenes to play without audio, and another bug that freezes the game for a minute or more when you try to access the main menu.

The game is amazing. The graphic, storyline and story telling are all top tier. Puzzles/combat are fun!
I bought it when it was on sale. It was 100% worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game September 11, 2013

This is another game I like because of the minimalistic graphics great (but creepy) soundtrack. Great "Contra" feel (that is a 2D game from the 80's/90's for those who do not know what Contra is) =)

4.0 out of 5 stars Deadlight Download July 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
The game seems like it is a pretty fun side scrolling game that's kind of unique. I haven't got to play it much on my computer because I was trying to playing on my laptop and it can't handle to much. I set the game on lower settings and it seemed to have a little bit better frame rate but I haven't got to try it on the lowest settings yet. The downloading process from Amazon was pretty good and fast. If I can get it playing better or try it on a better computer I'd say it would be a pretty good game that seems like it's got a great story to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game. July 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
Its a great zombie adventure game and has a style and feel similar to the original "Prince Of Persia"games from back in day. The game play is excellent. Personally recommend using a controller but a keyboard and mouse also works.

If you were one of those people who was captivated by the early 1990's masterpiece, Out of this World (known as Another World in Europe), then there is a very good chance that you will appreciate Deadlight, one of the more intriguing titles to appear in the downloadable game space. The game takes place in an alternate version of Seattle in the 1980's, immediately following its own unique version of a zombie apocalypse. The game is a 2D platformer and involves you controlling Randall, a rugged, tough, Canadian Park Warden who is trying to find his family in the aftermath of this disaster.

Another World fans will soon notice that Deadlight is heavily inspired by that amazing, innovative game. The movement physics have that similar feel to Another World's, a feel in which body movements feel more realistic in the controls. It's trickier to make accurate jumps, it takes time to accelerate and decelerate when running, and steep drops kill Randall on contact. There are also puzzles, occasional combat scenarios, and a chase here and there. It's a true modern homage to the Another World forumla, and it works very well in that regard.

For those of you who haven't heard of, or played, Another World, then I'm guessing this game could be a bit more polarizing for the same reasons described above. It doesn't feel silky smooth like so many other platformers, and the game's pacing can be off at times. However, if you can appreciate what the developers were trying to do and get behind it, there's a very, very good game to be found here.
