Mike Wall of Armless Octopus writes "But what would it be like to really live in a post-apocalyptic world infested with zombies? That’s what developer Tequila Works is exploring in Deadlight. It’s not a game about finding a cure or eradicating the zombies. “You’re not saving the world. The world is already dead,” said Creative Director Raúl Rubio. This 2D adventure has more in common with the original Prince of Persia than Left 4 Dead. Zombies, which the game calls ‘shadows,’ should be avoided at all costs."
