The release of Zombie Studios’ procedurally generated horror title Daylight has been delayed by three weeks to allow more time to make the game scarier, publisher Atlus has announced.

The game was originally set to release on April 8 for PC and PlayStation 4, but will now be available to download from April 29. “Let’s not mince words. First news you need to know about Daylight is that we had to delay the release date by several weeks,” the publisher said.

“Here’s the thing: the way Daylight is developed is completely different because of its procedural generation. In a lot of ways it really helped the team by streamlining the environment creation, but it’s taken extra time to make sure all the scare cues are properly implemented for maximum player effect.”

Daylight will be available for $9.99 on PlayStation 4 for PlayStation Plus subscribers during its first two weeks of sale ($11.99 for non-subscribers), and between now and its release the game can be pre-purchased on Steam for $9.99. Afterwards the game will return to its usual $14.99 price.
