There’s a number of big-hitting horror games set to arrive in 2014, including Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within and zombie-parkour-survival ‘sim’ Dying Light. With all the hype for these titles it’s easy to gloss over Zombie Studios’ terrifying looking Daylight, a procedurally generated psychological horror game featuring dolls. Horrible, hideous porcelain dolls.

It’s recently emerged that Daylight will be arriving this very April for PC and Playstation 4. Set in an abandoned sanitorium, this Unreal Engine 4 powered fright-fest looks to take a leaf of the Amnesia and Outlast book of horror; stripping the player of weaponry and plunging them into darkness…

Equipped with only a smartphone for company, including its inbuilt flashlight and compass, players wake up in an abandoned hospital and must try to find their way out. Thanks to the procedurally generated levels ever playthrough should be different, meaning you can’t fall back on that trusty walkthrough should the scares become too much for you.

Zombie Studios is the same team responsible for the popular free-to-play FPS Blacklight: Retribution, with their only previous experience in the horror genre coming with the pair of Saw games released for previous generation consoles and PC.

Daylight is scheduled to arrive in April 2014 for PC and Playstation 4.

Do you think the procedurally generated world will add to the scares or make them difficult to create?

Which is your most anticipated horror game of 2014?

Most anticipated? Among The Sleep for sure! I don't want to promote too much, but I'd still recommend playing the Alpha release which you can find here :)

Daylight looks very interesting to me too! Hmm, how to find my way out to daylight?
