From Dusk 'til Dawn

Cryo and Gamesquad to turn cult horror movie into PC game

Cryo have officially announced that they are working on a new horror survival game based on From Dusk 'Til Dawn, the cult vampire movie from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. In the game you will take on the role of George Clooney's character, Seth Gecko, who is now on a maximum security prison ship heading for New Orleans, just 72 hours from being executed for the crimes committed by his psychotic brother. And as if that isn't bad enough, the ship has been over-run by vampires trying to rescue one of your fellow prisoners, and your only chance to escape now is to fight your way through them and get to the top deck by dawn.

Due for release in early September, the game has been designed and written by Hubert Chardot, the godfather of the horror survival genre, which he helped to create with the Alone in the Dark series back in the early 1990's. Whether this will turn out to be a classic on a par with those games or another flawed effort like last year's Devil Inside remains to be seen, but it certainly looks the part so far. And with Acclaim distributing the game in the UK now that Cryo have retreated back to the continent, it should at least reach the shelves this time hopefully.
