Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is a video game developed by IO Interactive, published by Eidos Interactive under Square Enix available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is the sequel to Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. On July 14, 2010, it was announced by IO Interactive that Kane & Lynch 2 would be releasing a week earlier than scheduled.
Announced in November 2009, the game is described as having a new visual style inspired by documentary films and user-generated content. According to the press release, “every aspect of the game has been designed to deliver a fresh perspective to the words ‘intensity’ and ‘realism’. This includes also a new audio style. Instead of using ingame music, German composer Mona Mur was hired to create complex ambient soundscape layers generated from real city noises, vintage synthesizers, guitar amplifiers and unusual software. “ A pair of teaser videos accompanying the announcement present game footage from a distorted surveillance camera perspective. Dog Days was presented from Lynch’s point of view.
We deliberately used very high anti aliasing settings to test the hardware and the frame rate was maintained over 60 at all times. A fantastic result.
