Description

In From Dusk Till Dawn, the player follows the main character Seth through his anguishing seclusion on the Rising Sun (a tanker transformed into a high-security jail), to his escape off this floating prison. Only one problem seems to be standing in his way -- deceitful vampires with a fatal grudge against him destine to stop him dead in his tracks...literally.

It is a kill or be killed situation, and Seth needs the help of some twenty faithful friends, which include a riot gun, an assault rifle, a nailing gun and a circular saw. With these weapons, courage, a bit of wit and a gulp of Garlic Soda, he may make it through the night.

Trivia

Development

The game's storyline and script were significantly altered after the voice acting was recorded. Rather than do the voice acting all over again, Cryo simply cut and paste the voice files they already had to make them fit into the new script. This is fairly obvious when playing through the game, as when characters talk their sentences often have absolutely nothing to do with what they just said previously.

German index

On March 29, 2003, From Dusk Till Dawn was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. More information about this topic can be found in the gamegroup.
