Atlus To Publish Horror Game Daylight On PC And PS4

By Ishaan . June 7, 2013 . 8:30am



Atlus USA are teaming up with Zombie Studios to publish a first-person horror game called Daylight. Slated for release on PC and PS4 as a downloadable game in 2014, Daylight takes place in procedurally-generated stages, so levels are always different when you replay them.


The game begins with you regaining consciousness in an abandoned hospital, with only a cell phone to use as a source of light. The game is written by Jessica Chobot, who also provides the voice of the game’s protagonist.


On PS4, Daylight will allow you to share gameplay online using the console’s Sharing feature. It will also use the PlayStation Eye camera to take pictures of the player the exact moment a scare happens. You’ll be able to share these if you like as well.


Daylight will also support stereoscopic 3D through RealD 3D support. The game is slated for release simultaneously on PC and PS4 in 2014.

    I thought the end was a plot twist to show that the game would be for smartphones. Praise Cthulhu that it’s for PS4.

    A picture of my scared face? I’ve got to see this lol

  • MikeTxn

    A roguelike first-person horror game who takes pictures of your face in scary moments?


  • James Williams

    Jessica chobot doing the narration? Unsold!

    Don’t mean to be bitching about it but why does a digital download only game need a “publisher”? Isn’t Steam and Sony will publish the game? It’s already written, no one needs Atlus in the picture.

    • Just because they don’t need one doesn’t mean they don’t want one. There are things that Atlus will do for them so they can focus on the game making stuff. Let Atlus handle the marketing and everything else.

        Okay, maybe there’s some truth in your words. You know what needs some Atlus? Europe! We still don’t have Trauma Team here in Europe and the Wii is region locked…

      Atlus can allow them to publish PS4 and PC side, something that would be confusing as hell to work without employing a third party publisher. On top of this, Atlus is GREAT because they have a really devout fanbase, and a really good marketing team to boot. The same can’t really be said about Sony, and Valve really never acts as a publisher.

    For those that are interested (if the PS4 is region free). Sony are releasing it in Europe and at retail.

    Jessica Chobot?! Like the chick who licked the Vita way back on G4? Wow, she’s come pretty far.

      Wait what?

    I’m always up for a good horror game, so long as it doesn’t end up being another action game trying to pass as horror. Count me in for the PC version!

    First person, first person, first person. *angry* That’s all I ever hear about next gen games! Half of the announced games it seems are going to be in the first person view. I can’t be the only person who hates first person view, can I?

    God, why do people like first person view so much? I feel I should quit gaming now that everything is being developed in first person view. Ok, I exaggerate a bit, but sheesh! How many first person games have been announced for next gen now? And how many non first person?

    Aw cool! They could do so much with cellphone apps and the risk of running out of battery.

    Huh… Sounds interesting. Not big on horror games, as in I don’t like being scared. Not startled. Scared. There’s a big difference. Scared means I’m traumatized and my brain goes rampant on it’s own. Startled is “BOO” oh… A creepy image and a big loud noise, whoopti-getonwithit.

    I’ll keep an eye on this.. Might end up getting it and trying it out… Despite not enjoying being scared.. Kinda like with Silent Hill..

  • Solomon_Kano

    I still remember the years Chobot spent at IGN. Wonder if she’s a competent writer? Guess I’ll see. Not really into horror games, but I’ll keep an eye on this.
