As we told you earlier this week, 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”, will be available for download tomorrow, February 11th, and to celebrate, we have an exclusive look at the character profiles from the game.
While Charlaine’s ability to tell gripping, edge-of-your-seat, supernatural stories has transcended several types of media already, Dying for Daylight, in which you play as Harris’ popular vampire character Dahlia, marks her foray into the world of interactive games.
In Dying for Daylight Dahlia takes players on an epic journey across New Orleans, Memphis, and Charleston Harbor to find a legendary sun potion allowing vampires to survive in daylight. Discovering she is not the only one after this powerful tonic, Dahlia must match her wits against a rival sect of vampires who have scattered the ingredients among an avant-garde circus troupe. With each eclectic troupe member holding a piece of the potion, Dahlia must uncover their devious secrets and procure the mixture before it falls into the wrong hands. By collecting clues, solving puzzles, and gathering the needed ingredients, players will guide Dahlia in her mission to find the legendary potion before it’s too late.
“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.”
Check out the profiles and 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.
