Tequila Works’ first title Deadlight slated for XBLA this summer

Wednesday, 18th January 2012 15:38 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Indie studio Tequila Works has announced its first title, a puzzle platformer called Deadlight, is to be published by Microsoft Studios and released exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade this summer.

The game takes place on the American west coast during 1986. The landscape is apocalyptic, as the population of the country has been decimated by some sort of epidemic. Having “no reason to exist”, the main character Randall Wayne finds that when he enters the area, surviving becomes “much more than a daily routine.”

Tequila Works, based in Madrid was founded in September 2009 by Raúl Rubio Munárriz and Luz Sancho Rodríguez, and the team comprises veterans from such titles as Commandos, Motorstorm, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Diablo III, Heavy Rain, and Overlord II.

You can check out screens from the game below.

    Is it me, or does that look fucking awesome?

    I’m smelling whiffs of 28 Days Later meets Another World with a hint of Shadow Complex…

    God, not another “Another World” game.

    I fucking hated Limbo. It was like the worst parts of Another World, put together in sequence.

    #1 Sounds good to me, really i hope it turns great, though the developers seem pretty capable of doing a great game indeed.

    Looks great. Unlike DSB I really enjoyed Limbo (and Flashback, and Another World, and Shadow Complex, and so on).

    So yeah, more like this please. I’m utterly sick of FPS but still very happy to play these sort of games.


    They look absolutely nothing like each other.
