StorySet in an apocalyptic 1986, the survivors of a zombie outbreak live on among the remains of human civilization, trying to survive this hell on earth by any means necessary. You play Randall Wayne, an introverted and slightly paranoid survivor searching the destroyed streets of Seattle for his loved ones. Through tense platforming and life-threatening zombie encounters you must decide whether to use scarce ammunition and weapons to decimate the horde, or navigate the environment to sneak past them and hide. There’s more than one way to survive against the walking undead remains of the human race, now known only as ‘shadows’.

Deadlight: Director’s Cut enhances the original Deadlight in every way. Improved visuals and textures bring even more detail to the remnants of Seattle, plus enhanced controls and new animations make Randall even more agile. Now you must fight for your life and put your survival skills to the test in Deadlight: Director’s Cut new game mode, the ‘Survival Arena’.Features
  • Solve puzzles and overcome environmental hazards in tense 2D platforming
  • Decimate zombies with melee combat and weapons, or sneak past using the environment. Combat isn’t always the answer, especially when ammunition, weapons, and resources are scarce
  • Separated from his family, search the ruins of a ‘1986’ Seattle and uncover the fate of Randall’s loved ones
  • Survive endless waves of zombies in the new ‘Survival Arena’ mode! Use Interactive defences to block zombies and access new areas, or fightback using new weapons like the Machine Gun, Molotov Cocktail and Sniper Rifle to rank above the rest in online-leader boards
  • Running at 1080p, with superior controls and new animations, this is how survival was meant to look.
  • Watch through the original Developer Diaries and learn more about the Deadlight series!
  • Explore the gorgeous art of Deadlight in the Deadlight: Director’s Cut digital art book accessed in-game!

Deadlight: Director's Cut reviews and comments

Very good, a clean 2D mecanic (nostagie of the Abe's of 95) a well respected zombie universe, the immersion is direct embellished by videos to the graphics very dark comics (type darkest Dungeon) BONUS: a making of video unlocks by going from the games, one can follow the development of the games with the devs, it's rare and nice to have this kind of bonuses! A very good mix, a very nice surprise! Thanks to these guys for continuing to produce this kind of 2D nuggets!!!

I bought deadlight for the first time, so I chose the Director's cut version. I do not regret, the game was on sale at 4.99, I finished it in two evenings (5h in total). At the base, I'm not a fan of zombie games, but in deadlight, the 2.5 D side, side view, a little platform (reminds me of inside), we save our ammunition, little secrets everywhere, I loved this game. It is beautiful, not too greedy, top music, in short, it is even worth its original price 19.99.

Game over. It is really not bad, the graphics are very beautiful but we have no time to contemplate them because you have to move fast... the effects of depths are very beautiful. the story is nice. This game is not too hard, just what it takes. It ended fairly quickly but too long would have been useless. A game like the famous Limbo with its little puzzles but more simplistic anyway... Volya. I recommend it but on sale (I got it at 4 EUR.) because 20 euros is worth it anyway.

The Game sounded exciting and I haven't bought enough of the current Zombie Wave, so wildly determined bought and let go. Catchy Control, neat graphics, reminds me of "This War of mine." Judging By the Archievments, I'm through after 45 Minutes with 31% of the Game when it shredded me the only automatic Game Stand that would force me to start afresh. Reimbursement initiated. For all those who are undeterred, the Bug occurs shortly after you find the 38s, you shoot down the Ladder, you hail over a Rope, crashes due to lack of Endurance and has a Memory Problem. No thanks.

I just got this for a dollar in a pay what you want Humble Bundle and damn this game is amazing! Pros: Amazing story, the story has to be one of the best zombie apocalype stories I've played in a while. Great amosphere, walking around in a ruined Seattle is pretty fun and awesome The parkour apect is pretty nice at times it can be a bit annoying but overall was pretty fun A really nice soundtrack! Cons: Very low replayability. Story is only a few hours long but as said earlier enjoyable Some parts(The Rat scene) feel like they shouldn't even be in the game. It seemed like more filler content tbh Overall I thought the game was very enjoyable for a dollar. A really decent story but I wouldn't spend more than 5$ on the game.
