Daylight is first-person horror game developed by Zombie Studios, powered by Unreal Engine 4, which takes place in an old psychiatric hospital overrun by ghosts. The game combines elements of arcade, stealth, and adventure games, while the maps are randomly generated.

Daylight is a horror action-adventure game. It independently financed and produced by Zombie Studios, which is known mainly for the Blacklight series.

We assume the role of a woman who one day wakes up inside an old psychiatric hospital. The place is overrun by ghosts and the player's primary task is to survive. The architectural plan of the building is randomly generated, so each new game is a new adventure. The ultimate aim of the game is to find a way to escape the building. It takes about three hours, but the randomness of the environment encourages multiple walkthroughs. Only in this way will we get to know the entire history of the hospital and the main character's past, anyway, as documents and recordings also are placed at random.

We observe the events from a first person perspective. The game does not have any combat mechanics; the heroine is physically weak and does not have any weapons. The only effective defense against the shadows are flares and escape. While exploring the rooms and corridors, our greatest ally is our smartphone - we use it, among others, as a simple flashlight. In addition, from time to time, our phone gets possessed and starts to play the voice of a mysterious individual who apparently hides somewhere watching us. In addition to acting the part of a flashlight, the phone is also a map for easy navigation through the dark locations. Moreover, the proximity of ghosts causes disruptions in the functioning of the device, which is used as a simple detector of supernatural entities. We also have plastic lightsticks which, thanks to the UV light, show footprints on the ground.

Daylight is one of the first projects powered by Unreal Engine 4. The use of this technology resulted in a high level of detail and realistic dynamic lighting system, strengthening the atmosphere of terror in the game.
