From the Press Release:
Embark on a darkly humorous journey as I-play, Oberon Media’s publishing division and the world’s leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced the online release of their newest game, Dying for Daylight, now available for PC download. An original vampire tale created with best-selling author Charlaine Harris, whose novels inspired HBO’s hit show “True Blood”, Dying for Daylight takes Harris’ work to an interactive platform for the very first time. Players will enter a chilling world as they assume the role of Dahlia, a vampire with a devastating sense of fashion and a razor-sharp wit. Drawn in by a unique and sinister art style, Dying for Daylight delivers a fresh and thrilling twist to the Hidden Object/Light Adventure game.
“As an author, I have spent my life focusing on the power of words. I can honestly say that this collaboration with I-play has been eye-opening, showing the unique way stories can be told and characters brought to life in games,” said Harris. “Dahlia has always been one of my favorite and complex characters, and it has been rewarding and fascinating to explore her true personality, while creating all new storylines and adventures for her to experience.”
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.
“Charlaine’s vivid imagery and intriguing storylines made her work the perfect basis for an interactive game,” said Bob Hayes, Chief Operating Officer at Oberon-Media. “As the story unfolds, Sookie Stackhouse fans, ‘True Blood’ fans, and gamers alike will become fully immersed in her one-of-a-kind vampire world.”
