It turns out Dead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive has a lot more tricks up its sleeve. Today, the company held a showcase to highlight all of the games on its upcoming slate, and we've got some really good games to look forward to in the coming months.
What was announced in the Behaviour showcase today?
Dead by Daylight may be Behaviour Interactive's biggest export, but that doesn't mean it's the only string to the Canadian company's bow. At today's Behaviour showcase, we got a look at six projects the studio is currently working on, and while those projects do include some upcoming Dead by Daylight content, there were some impressive surprises, too. Let's take a look at everything that was announced at today's Behaviour showcase!
Meet Your Maker looks like Rage meets Super Mario Maker
First up, we got a look at Meet Your Maker, a hybrid building and raiding game that combines tower defense gameplay with first-person shooter action. Players create Outposts filled with traps and guards, then raid one another's Outposts to steal genetic material. It's got Metal Gear Solid base-building vibes crossed with the feel of an especially brutal Super Mario Maker. This one's coming to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox sometime soon, and there's a closed playtest coming in August as well.
Hooked On You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim is Out Now
Ever since Hooked On You was revealed inadvertently via trademark, we've wanted to know more about this wacky marriage between brutal murder and romance. Happily, during today's Behaviour showcase, we got a brand new trailer showing off some of the game's activities. Beach volleyball figured heavily in the trailer, with some of the killers' dark sides coming out over sporting altercations. The trailer also showed off some of the different locations and interactions you'll be able to enjoy with the most romantic murderers in gaming. The Hooked On You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim release date is today, so you can pick it up now.
Flippin' Misfits is a zany multiplayer game coming to Steam in September
If you're looking for a party game to check out with your friends, Flippin' Misfits will definitely fit the bill. It's a zero-gravity brawler in which any surface can be used and you can sustain attacks from any direction. The game marries high-energy club music and colorful aesthetics to create something as intense as it is fun. Flippin' Misfits is coming to Steam this September, so be on the lookout for it.
Project S has you solving puzzles in a Zelda-esque open world
Next, we're onto something that looks rather intriguing. Project S (presumably, this name is not fina) is an open-world puzzle game that looks like Myst meets Breath of the Wild. You'll explore an open world, which Behaviour says is fully hand-crafted, to solve a series of puzzles, which are also hand-crafted. You can do so either alone or with friends, and there will be myriad rewards available for solving puzzles. With the Breath of the Wild sequel delayed until spring 2023, Project S might have some tough competition, but it looks unique enough to thrive. Here's hoping it does.
Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil - Project W
Finally, we got a look at the upcoming Dead by Daylight: Resident Evil Project W crossover content. This will be the second collaboration between the two horror titans and will introduce Rebecca Chambers and Ada Wong as survivors, with Albert Wesker joining the cast as a killer. Map-wise, you're getting a fully reworked version of the RCPD map from the previous Resident Evil collab, but it will be split into two maps, with the main hall figuring heavily in both. We'll learn more about this in the coming weeks.
Lots to pore over there, I'm sure you'll agree. We'll almost certainly learn more about these projects as they draw nearer to release, so make sure to stay tuned to TechRaptor for more information.
