Deadlight: Director's Cut Launch Trailer Revealed: Press Release: "Larkspur, Calif., June 21, 2016 - The survival horror platformer Deadlight: Director’s Cut is available today for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC digitally for $19.99. With the brand-new Survival Arena Mode which offers interactive defenses and novel weapons, players can expect an unforgettably intense struggle against the horde. In addition, the PS4 and Xbox One versions now also encompass the Nightmare Mode, revealing an alternative ending upon completion of the game.

Playing as Randall Wayne, a man in search of his family in the ruins of Seattle circa 1986, players will solve puzzles and overcome environmental hazards in this tense 2D platformer. As weapons and ammunition are scarce, diving into battle isn’t always the best solution; the choice between sneaking past zombies or annihilating them with melee combat and weapons will be crucial to prevail.

Superior controls, improved animations and running at 1080p on all platforms are just some of the enhancements to Deadlight: Director’s Cut. For fans looking to delve deeper into the universe, Deep Silver has released the Developer Diaries which present in-depth insight to the Deadlight series, as well as the new digital art book.

Zombie with a Shotgun Indiegogo Campaign: From the Indiegogo Page: "Are you guys tired of the same old zombie projects where the humans need to survive the zombie apocalypse or when humans fight each other and the story isn't about the zombies at all???

Zombie with a Shotgun is going to be that zombie film where all the rules we know about zombie films go right out the window.

In this Zombie film, the zombie will be the hero and it will have others (zombies) to help out on the war against the humans. The story follows Aaron who isn't sure if he is infected with the zombie virus or some other infection. He takes this journey with his girlfriend Rachel and his shotgun where they both find out the deep secrets among the zombie virus and their love life.

This project will have what Zombie and Horror fans been waiting for...

We love to tell you more, but we need your help to raise at least $50,000.00 to have the movie made and delivered to you guys.

We love for you to see how this all started when Zombie with a Shotgun was first created into a web-series. Please take a look and I hope you all can enjoy and help us reach this goal."
