Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels and inspiration for HBO’s hit series “True Blood”, invites you to meet Dahlia, a vampire with a devastating sense of fashion and a razor-sharp wit, in an all-new interactive adventure game from I-play.
From the Press Release:
I-play, Oberon Media’s publishing division and the world’s leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced an upcoming collaboration with Charlaine Harris, best-selling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series that inspired HBO’s hit show “True Blood.” The game, titled Dying for Daylight, brings Harris’ supernatural storytelling to interactive life for the very first time. The all-new original storyline features her popular character Dahlia, a vampire heroine featured in many short stories by Harris.
“Taking a character into the world of games is great fun and allows us to tell stories and bring characters to life in a whole new way,” says Harris. “Just like Sookie, Dahlia is a unique and multi-faceted character. Working with I-play to present her in this new way has been an amazing experience, and I can’t wait to hear what fans think of the results.”
“Charlaine’s stories and characters are a huge contributor to the phenomenon surrounding all things supernatural right now,” says Tony Leamer, VP Marketing at I-play. “Her writing is so vivid and her characters so interesting that they are a natural fit for a game. Dahlia is already beloved by a legion of fans, and we hope they will love this new story and the way we’re telling it.”
Dying for Daylight will be available for PC download in January 2011.
