Games that offer up procedurally generated content are nothing new. In fact, roguelikes and dungeon crawlers have been doing it for years. The games have received more attention lately thanks to games like Minecraft though. Now Zombie Studios is trying their luck at making a procedurally generated horror game.
Daylight, a new game from Zombie Studios and Atlus, attempts to reinvent the survival horror genre by making the game different with each playthrough. The basics will remain the same, however, as players attempt to navigate their way through an abandoned hospital with only a smartphone as their sole light source and weapon. Think of it as Fatal Frame, but without knowing what’s going to happen on each playthrough.
The first trailer will give you an idea of what to expect when the game launches in early 2014 for PS4 and PC:
