The Until Dawn Trailer Is Nightmarish and Promising

Until DawnThe survival horror genre has had a sudden renaissance from big developers and independent studios alike. And Until Dawn appears to be another fresh take on things that go bump in the night.

I don’t get much of a sense of gameplay from this trailer, but the name David Cage kept rattling around in my head the whole time. The idea that any or even all characters could potentially die before game’s end — or as an ending in and of itself — is intriguing.

Is it a player-controlled outcome? Do you even play as a character, or do you watch over this hapless lot and help avoid traps and peril?

I’m looking forward to seeing more from this title, and really enjoyed this trailer as a nice introduction.
