Late last year we told you about Dying for Daylight, a PC game created by I-play in collaboration with Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels that inspired HBO’s “True Blood”. On this Friday, February 11th, you’ll be able to download Dying for Daylight and play as Harris’ popular vampire character Dahlia.
While Charlaine’s ability to tell gripping, edge-of-your-seat, supernatural stories has transcended several types of media already, Dying for Daylight marks her foray into the world of interactive games.
“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.”
Check out a trailer for the game below, and be sure to visit the Dying for Daylight website for more. To learn a bit about Dahlia, order a copy of one or more of the short story collections in which she can be found from the Evilshop below.
