Sony To Publish Until Dawn, A Teen Horror Game For PlayStation Move

By Ishaan . August 14, 2012 . 12:45pm


Sony are publishing a new PlayStation 3 title for the PlayStation Move, titled Until Dawn. Developed by Supermassive Games, Until Dawn’s premise is as follows:


One night, you and seven other teenagers are on a remote mountain on the anniversary of your friend’s mysterious death. The power’s out, there’s no phone reception and you’re trying to get the hot cheerleader to notice you. What could possibly go wrong?


If that sounds like a teenage horror movie, it’s because that’s what it’s trying to be. The Move controller will be used contextually within the game as a torch, or to pull levers and perform other such motions.


Until Dawn will be released sometime in 2013 for the PlayStation 3, and you can watch a trailer for it above. The game appears to have been in development for a while, as Sony trademarked the title back in 2010.

    Why would you aspire to be a teen horror movie? I’m honestly baffled that someone wanted to make the game equivalent of Friday The 13th, that’s not really setting a high bar for yourselves, fellas!

    At least they’re setting out to really nail the feeling, I suppose, it hits all the tropes and clichés, even right down to the mysterious masked killer. But still, not aiming very high, are they?

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      I disagree. Sometimes you don’t have to aim so high to entertain people. I feel they have a premise here that can work and as long as they execute it properly, then it doesn’t have to become the craziest, scariest, horror game alive. There are other games that can try for that, like Amnesia.

    • Sometimes, that’s a part of the novelty though. Like you said, they’re trying to really nail the feeling. If it plays out the same way, I’m sure it can be a unique experience.

    I’m intrigued, but I have no expectation that this has any chance of beating the ULTIMATE cheeseball teen horror game.  ILLBLEED on Dreamcast.  Such a ridiculous and wonderful game.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    seems ok.
    maybe it will be fun to try and survive, you know, to see how good you could be when put in the situations of teen in teen horror movies, you could do the things you always say they should have done while watching a “Friday the 13th”, “Holloween” or “Nightmare on Elm Street” (to name a few) with some friends, hey actually, sign me up, if done right, it could be interesting, fun, scary and intense!

    BTW: was I the only one who thought “yes, we are getting a new Evil Dead game” when they read the “Until Dawn” part?

  • why a terror game must be designed in first person ?!. I don’t understand.

    • Anon-non

      it seems like an ok mix; fps during chase scenes.

    cabin in the woods set the bar for ‘cheesy teen flick’ waaaay up high. it’ll be decades until another horror movie will top that.

  • Göran Isacson

    I can already see the multiple choice ending: “Have sex” or “Live”. That being siad if it can be cheezy fun I guess this can be an interesting novelty… although as the comment below me puts it, Cabin in the Woods is a lofty goal to strive for.

  • Sardorim

    The first kid to try and get in with the girl will be the first to die. To survive these horror games you must remain celibate until the end!

  • It remind me of Silent Hill:Shattered Memories except the gun and err … chick part.

  • s07195

    Can I call out the death flags?

    im suddenly reminded of Cabin In The Woods D:
