A Tense 2D Platformer for Fans of Survival-Horror Games

It’s 1986 and the world has been ravaged by a zombie outbreak. The few survivors struggle to survive, by any means necessary, amongst the remains of human civilization. You are one such survivor - Randall Wayne, an introverted and slightly paranoid young man who is searching the destroyed streets of Seattle in hopes of finding his loved ones.

You’ll need to tap into your best platforming skills in this tense, 2D side-scrolling action game to navigate the environment and fight, or avoid, the throngs of zombies you encounter. Will you use the precious ammunition and weapons you managed to scavenge or can you find a way to sneak past them and live to fight another day - and perhaps discover what happened to your family in this tense survival-horror game?

What’s New in the Deadlight: Director’s Cut Platform Game

The Director’s Cut completely overhauls the textures from the original platform game, kicking the level of detail and realism up a notch or two. In addition, the enhanced - tighter - controls combined with new animations make Randall even more agile.

You can manipulate defenses to block the undead and access new areas, while fighting back with an array of powerful weaponry that includes machine guns, Molotov cocktails, sniper rifles, and more in this exciting survival-horror game.
