Techland Compares Dying Light Feats To Real-World Equivalents

Techland says its zombie/parkour game Dying Light is on track to be the company's best-selling game yet. The studio, previously known for Dead Island and the Call of Juarez games, says that more than 3,200,000 people have played the game in the 45 days since its launch. Those players haven't been sitting idle in safehouses, either. Techland has created an infographic that highlights some of the activities players have done in-game, and given those feats real-world context.

Our TakeI'm at least partially responsible for the medkit stat. It's not that I take a lot of damage, it that I like to keep my health topped off at all times. OK, I may take a bunch of damage, too. I blame those jerks who hang out at night.

Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament Arrives On Wii U Virtual Console Tomorrow

The 2005 Game Boy Advance title will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow.

We gave the game an 8.25 when it released writing, "There’s a lot of great platforming to be had here, and the infrequent annoyances of those nasty levels and the questionable localization are a small price to pay for the opportunity to revisit the 2D nirvana that so few modern games give us a chance to experience."

The game will be available tomorrow on Wii U for $6.99.

Robert Bowling has announced that he has joined charity-focused game seller Humble Bundle as vice president and creative director. Bowling, who spent six years as creative strategist for Call of Duty at Infinity ward, left that position to strike out on his own.
