The contest runs from May 19th to June 19th 2016 and aims to select the most creative, enjoyable, and high-quality maps.

More information and the submission form can be found at http://DyingLightGame.com/Devtools-Contest.

Positives:

-very fun, versatile, and challenging combat, against both zombies and humans
-early difficulty -> incredibly satifsying feeling of progression when levelling up and getting better weapons
-great parkour system, especially once you unlock the grappling hook
-high playablity value; endlessly exploring and killing zombies in a sandbox world never gets boring
-night time is like a whole new game; adrenaline rush material, especially with player invasions (that can be turned off)
-missions on the whole are fun
-great synthwave soundtrack
-graphics are nice, easy to get a solid framerate

Negatives

-story is pretty average, HOWEVER: this doesn't matter that much since the strength of the game lies in your own sandbox adventures and fights
-voice acting ranges from average to awful

I would definitely recommend getting Dying Light even at full price. (I don't even have The Following DLC yet, which I've heard is better than the main story)

This is one of the most absorbing and well crafted games I've played in recent years, along with Fallout 4. It's hard at first but it just gets better and better. When nighttime approaches the sounds get fantasticaly scary and in the early parts of the game you just run to find the nearest safehouse. Right up to the end I found night exceptionally creepy. Even if you weren't a fan of Dead Island you should give it a try. It's nothing like Dead Island's somewhat laborious gameplay due to one of the best parkour systems in any game I've played, and later you can do Batman style grappling. Techland have come a long way, whatever they release next I'll buy it as soon as it comes out.

Really Really like this game, only problem is that unless you have some mates with you, it can get a bit dull. Definately reccommend if you have at least 1 friend who you can play CO-OP with.

best zombie game available, amazing storyline, amazing graphics, amazing sound quality, very immersive

caution to buyers though:

the camera sway movement when walking along edges of stuff and being at high places can cause motion sickness during specific missions of the game, Be sure to check out some gameplay videos before you decide to buy it.

Got it during the Summer 2016 sale, best game i've bought in a while.

If you love killing zombies with practically whatever you want in an open world enviroment you'll love this. And the following, I find it a lot like The Walking Dead tbh. But night time, awwww mate, real intense even with the good weapons. Best to find a safehouse, coz night time is practially I Am Legend. Just a fantasic game. Co-op is great as well. Makes it a lot easier and real good fun. And to top it all off you can get old western style weapons. I just love having my revolvor.

So if you can get it on sale definitely buy it, though its worth the full price.

With a great scenery and beautiful graphics, Dying Light is easily the best looking zombie game out there. The story of Dying Light is really generic, but the characters and the protagonist make up for that. Dying Light has a decent sized city to play in and gives you a new city to play in further into the game. Free running over the roofs and many obstacles in the city of Harran feels awesome and really smooth. Combat could use a bit more depth but has some really smooth dodging mechanics to keep it fun, and make it challenging at times. There's also a nice upgrading/crafting system for your weapons and creating fun gadgets like Throwing stars and Fireworks. Leveling is really fun aswell, you have 3 different skill tree's which you level up at the same time and some really nice skills to unlock. Looting and lockpicking is fun but in the end not really worth it most of the time.

The A.I. of the zombies is decent and the game has good cinematics and voice acting. However the mainstory is a bit short and the ending is kinda dissapointing, i'm not going to spoil anything but first of all the last mision can't be played co-op. This is big let down for someone who played through the whole game with a friend. Also the final boss is a quick time event, which makes it even more dissapointing.

Even though the game has some downsides, overall this game is alot of fun. And it succeeds at what it tries to do, Being one of the best zombie games out there. I would definitely recommend Dying Light to anyone that loves free roaming zombie games.

Great game and well optimized, the story wasn't bad either. Some zombies need a strategy somehow to defeat or a special weapon. It is a good game for co-op, but not necessary.
The Following DLC is a huge plus too
100% worth buying

This game may be just a bit overpriced and the scenario may be incoherent but you'll have loads of fun and even more fun if you're with a friend ! from my 80 hours experience ( 65h campaign + 15h dlc ) and all the side quests done i can say i really liked this game from the beginning to the end !
it's a must buy for me :D
If you bought it while in sale you've just made a GREAT deal :)

One of the best, zombie-apocalpse game in Steam. An awesome blend of FPS and action w/ an addition of creepy, gore and horror. The Following - Enhanced Edition is two games: Dying Light and Dying Light: The Following. This edition fixed all the glitches from the original Dying Light game with added content such as an outfit pack and weapon pack. It's a single player game, but can be played multi-player via online up to four players.

-Shortcut Review-
A great, spiritual successor to the Dead Island series. Much improved on graphics, mechanics and playability. Storyline is short, but the sidequests, repeatable quests, and parkour challenges makes this game quite enjoyable. It's quite fun to play with others, however, it may take awhile for someone to join your game. Although playing against the Hunter is very hard, the gameplay is tolerable once skills are high and weapons are highest grade (orange). May remind you that parkour is the key to survival - will give you the urgency to climb and jump building to building in other, zombie apocalypse games.

-Full Review (Somewhat Spoiler free)-
The beginning is very challenging because it takes some time to get used to the parkour skills: one must find a place on the wall to grip, use crosshair to aim n press button to jump while holding on to the grab button and having aim in place with gamepad stick. Player will follow a level-up system that upgrades perks and abilities. This is forgiveable because the start is an (epilogue) or tutorial and acts as part of the storyline. Also, the game also gives some useful hints to evading zombies early on.

At first, it's somewhat difficult to find weapons and can be tough to defend with them because the weapons are the lowest-grade. They have a high breakability and also low attack power to kill zombies. They also require materials to repair them if found. As for the items like gauze and alcohol to make medkits, they are pretty easy to find and don't require much scavenging. I think it's great that there's no "overcumberance" when reaching the max capacity in storage bag. It just simply doesn't allow the player to gather anymore items. There's too many games out there with this nuisance.

The characters are likeable, even though, they're created in a cliche way. We have a typical, rugged mercinary, a naive, yet brillant engineer, his athletic and ♥♥♥-kicking of an older sister, a clueless leader, and a ruthless, dellusional villan. The voice actor, Roger Craig Smith (RE series), does a wonderful job with Kyle Crane - he keeps his character relatable with the audience by a running occurance whether he is doing right or wrong in his actions. Unfortunately, the writers made the character to be just another, war hero with vanilla morals. All of these characters are complimented by each other because they have to survive against a higher power and the undead. See how where this is going?

Overall, this game easily makes you forget about the horrors from Dead Island, literatly. Techland learned their mistakes from the DI franchise, regrouped their tactics and created one, badass of a game with this one. You can get it for a great discount on sale (Summer and Holiday sales) at $15, even though, this game deserves to be paid in full price. Thanks for reading!

Amazing game. Feels like I'm in the middle of a Walking Dead movie. Like I'm running in the landscape real time. It's incredible, parkour fun. I've never played anything like it. The realism, the fear. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
