Zombie Studios brings out Daylight, a horror game using Unreal Engine 4

By Brad S Feb 8 2013 add comment

Daylight is one of the first few games that will run on Epic’s next generation Unreal Engine 4.

It’s an odd game, no doubt… Daylight puts you in the shoes of a lady, with no name, who wakes up in an abandoned asylum and unable to […]
