A lot has been said about Dead Island and it’s haunting reveal trailer.  You know, the one where a little girl dies not once, but twice.

Well, today at the GDC I had the chance to see Dead Island in action, and while I can’t yet tell you all about what I saw – I can tell you that you won’t actually be able to kill children.

We asked Deep Silver flat out if you’d be able to kill kids and they replied no . . . they didn’t think it was appropriate.

So… I guess it’s ok in the trailer, but not in practice?  Who knows. Someone should probably tell Geoff from Achievement Hunter, I’m sure he’ll be relieved.

Stay tuned to RipTen for my full hands-off, eyes-on preview of Dead Island live from the GDC.
