At its best, until dawn is a cheerfully cheesy homage to horror movies in a world built by a developer who clearly love the genre. Although his feelings are tempered by a lack of cohesion in history, its system of choice and consequence, robust and eye on the most ridiculous tropes of horror done until dawn finally worth playing.
Developer Supermassive Games has tapped horror movie clichés pending set-up Dawn and amplify them to extreme degrees. Eight attractive stereotypes, played with great enthusiasm by a well-balanced cast that is too good for the material, gathered to “party like porn stars” in a remote cabin on top of a snowy mountain that can be accessed through a reliable cable car. Why are they there? To mark the first anniversary of the mysterious disappearance of their friends in the surrounding woods, naturally.
