Erfurt, 8 May 2023 | TML Studios is pleased to announce that Dead Man's Diary, a unique survival adventure game with a strong focus on narration, will be released for current Xbox consoles this summer. The game cleverly combines elements from the genres of narrative action-adventure and survival, taking players into a fascinating and dangerous post-apocalyptic world. Thanks to TML's many years of experience with the Unreal Engine, players in Dead Man's Diary move around in a graphically enormously sophisticated game world.
The game was already released on Steam last year, but has since been massively revised and improved by the development team – the Xbox version now also benefits from these improvements, which have also been ported to the latest version of the Unreal Engine.
All new features
- Upgrade to Unreal Engine 5
- New Unreal Engine 5 lighting system (Lumen)
- Enhanced in-game help with hints in the world
- Optional dynamic help to progress more easily in the game
- Reworked interaction with objects
About Dead Man's Diary
The player takes on the role of a survivor in a post-apocalyptic world scarred by nuclear destruction. In search of food, shelter and answers, the protagonist explores a hostile environment filled with deadly dangers, secrets and a grippingly told story. The game offers a unique blend of survival mechanics such as crafting and exploration, as well as a compelling story and gripping puzzles.
„Dead Man's Diary is a heartfelt project of our team, and we are thrilled to announce the game for current Xbox consoles,“ said Thomas Langelotz, CEO and founder of TML Studios. „The Xbox version of the game offers a streamlined gameplay experience with revamped gameplay and technical improvements designed specifically for Xbox consoles.“
The technical implementation of Dead Man's Diary on the Xbox consoles is made possible thanks to the Unreal Engine, which has already been used in previous projects by TML-Studios. Players can look forward to detailed settings, including dark forests, ruined cities and abandoned industrial complexes. The story is intensified by diary entries and soliloquies by the protagonist. In addition, the high-quality audio production will immerse players in the dark atmosphere of the post-apocalyptic world.
