Description

It's not quite sunny in LA and that's just how vampires like it! Police snipers are on high alert however. Dark Day LA is played by two players simultaneously on one iPad. One player assumes the role of a vampire, the other is a sniper. As the vampire, you're walking in the streets of Los Angeles and must try to make victims without getting noticed. As the sniper, you're observing the crowd and must try spot the vampire and take him out. The unique controls in Dark Day LA are highly intuitive and give you very precise control over the vampire or sniper's crosshair. Play in full screen if your opponent is sitting next to you, or use the split screen mode if you're sitting across each other. Dark Day LA is the perfect multiplayer game and it requires nerves of steel. Are you able to deceive your opponent sitting only inches away from you? Can you spot your opponents suspicious movements before too many victims are made? Download now!

History

Dark DAY LA is born at the Global Game Jam 2013 in Hilversum, where we (Tom, Thomas, Manuel, Maarten, Valentijn, Bob) created the game around the theme 'heartbeats'. We had much fun creating the game and we won both the public and jury award for best game at Hilversum. From that point Tom and Thomas continued on development and business. The game has been rebuild for iPad and we took Gamious as the publisher to release the game and show it to the world. During development we also created a demo for Philips new pointing device, moving DDLA to Indigo @ Gamescom in Cologne and Utrecht, finally, hitting the release in November on iPad. August 2014, Millionviews continued publishing DarkDayLA.
