Daylight the procedurally generated horror game coming to the PC and PS4 has received a new release date. A new trailer was released yesterday announcing the new date as April 29th. The reason for the delay? To make it scarier.

Daylight is being produced by Atlus and will be released on the PC and PS4, now on April 29. According to the press release a few things are responsible for the delay, but ultimately it’s because the developers, Zombie Studios, wanted to make it scarier.

“Let’s not mince words. First news you need to know about Daylight is that we had to delay the release date by several weeks. Here’s the thing: the way Daylight is developed is completely different because of its procedural generation. In a lot of ways it really helped the team by streamlining the environment creation, but it’s taken extra time to make sure all the scare cues are properly implemented for maximum player effect.
Tl;dr: we’re fine tuning Daylight to make it scarier. ”

Are you excited to give Daylight a go? Will you be hopping onto Twitch so others can be in control of your scares?  Should procedurally generated be the future of horror? Leave your thoughts below!
