This Looks Promising...

A game that's been in development for quite some time and has managed to catch my interest once again: Dead Island. Due to complications and postponing, the year of release was bounced around quite a bit. Now that Pegi18 (www.pegi.info) has a grasp on it, the year that appears at the end of this more artistically portrayed video shows "2011." Reading up on the game on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/deadislandgame) shows information that the game is going to be mainly focused on first-person melee combat, have a four player co-op, weapons customization, set in an open world, use RPG elements for character development, and of course, zombies. Sounds promising, but hopefully they don't make this game like other zombie games already on the market and focus on breaking into true characteristics of the zombie genre, such as survival, socio-cultural deformation and making instant life-threatening decisions.

  1. I've been hoping for a new, original game for so long. It seems that so many developers just copy different aspects of other games, which I understand...but something new would be simply amazing. This looks a little promising. I'll have to see the gameplay.
