The makers of Dead Island have released an interactive YouTube trailer for their next apocalyptic zombie survival game, Dying Light, set to be released January 27, 2015. The trailer plays sort of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book, randomly presenting you with two courses of action at a time while you run around a shantytown, frantically climbing up and down buildings and defending yourself from groups of frenzied undead. In the event you make the wrong decision and get...well...eaten alive, you’ll be offered a tip such as, “avoid groups of zombies when you’re unarmed,” and can continue to play through the rest of the trailer.

At a hair over 25 minutes, it’s a pretty long trailer, but an engaging and exciting way to showcase the gameplay. Are you excited for Dying Light? Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments below!

In a property so defined by player interactions and creations, it's easy to forget that Minecraft does have a story. You wake up, you build settlements, you craft swords, and you go kill a dragon. Beyond the most basic framework, however, it was never expanded upon. After all, it didn't need to—fans of the game were more than willing to create their own tales that take place in such an open world.

And, interestingly enough, it seems like Telltale Games is taking a page from that book of reasoning. Hit the jump for more information!

NeoGAF users have been quick to notice that Valve, owner of the games platform Steam, has begun region-locking some games, preventing consumers from gifting them to friends in other regions, with the main reason behind this change appearing to be to prevent users from exploiting the relatively low prices in these regions, as well as to deter resellers. Currently, the regions affected are Russia, CIS (Common Wealth of Independent States), South East Asia, South America and Turkey.

Controversial and violent: Destructive Creations' Hatred has certainly been getting a lot of attention over the last few days. The mass murdering shooter, which was announced back in October, was taken down from Steam's Greenlight program by Valve on Monday.

Since their release of I Am Bread on Early Access earlier this month, Bossa Studios has been working hard on polishing up the very well-received new experimental game. The game has players take the role of a slice of bread trying to get itself toasted by whatever means necessary. And now they've just provided a new update two weeks after release.

Updates to I Am Bread include a new camera sensitivity slider, more object sound effects, controller improvements for the UI, grading rebalancing, better lighting, and the ability to adjust the keyboard configuration "to suit your big, fat hands," as Bossa Studios employee Malford put it in a playfully awkward video released alongside the announcement.
