Dying Light's Nighttime Zombie Chase Almost Gave Me A Heart Attack

There are precisely one billionty video games out there that ask you to imagine what it would be like to survive the zombie apocalypse. But it's rare to find one that makes the setting feel like anything more than just morbid fun or creepy explorations. It's hard to inspire genuine, adrenaline-rushing fear.

Watch Dying Light's Characters Free-Run Their Way To Safety

In a new trailer released this morning, you can get a glimpse at a free-running scenario in the newly-announced Dying Light, the next game from the makers of Dead Island.

Hellraid Doesn't Look Half Bad for a Medieval Dead Island

Man... this trailer. Yes, Techland's 2013 first-person slasher Hellraid has a silly name. And yes, the Dead Island games have never been perfect. But this game looks like they took the best part of Dead Island (the combat) and applied it to a setting that screams "Dark Messiah". How can I say no to that? » 5/08/13 5:20am 5/08/13 5:20am

Can People Still Get Dead Island In Countries Where It's Censored? 'I…

The game's creative director was asked if he thinks Germans are still getting… » 12/02/12 11:00am 12/02/12 11:00am

Born from a Dead Island Mod, This Game Looks Hellish

It all started with a weapon mod. Techland programmer Marcin Zygadlo created a Dead Island mod that started turning heads in the studio. "It was a proof that chopping monsters frozen by magic spells using two-handed swords is brutally fun and addictive," Techland dev Marcin Kruczkiewicz blogs.
