5w ago - Writer Jessica Chobot unveiled the real horror behind Daylight on PlayStation 4 / PS4 today, with details below as follows:
Considering today is Halloween, the dev team and I wanted to share with you a story about what inspired Daylight's location, the fictional Mid Island.
It's an abandoned, desolate place with the façade of any other island in the New England area, but bears deep scars in terms of unspeakable events that took place there and at its most infamous location, the Mid Island Bay Hospital.
While a lot of the environments in our game are a hodgepodge of various haunted locales around the country, there's one very real, very personal experience I had growing up that truly inspired the feel of Daylight. This is that story...

Didi lives alone with her mother, Kat - a cabaret singer at the biggest show in town. Her father abandoned the family a little while back, which left them in real trouble.
