Alone in the Dark is the mother of the horror game genre, sending shivers down the spines of unsuspecting 90s kids by immersing them in a monster-infested world that put them at jeopardy, and it's equally as terrifying as the original.
Alone in the Dark, released in 1992, paved the way for survival horror games, putting players in the shoes of Private Inspector Edward Carnby, who is sent to investigate Derceto, a haunted house haunted by monsters.
Pieces Interactive has revealed that it is bringing new life to Alone in the Dark, exploring its Louisiana setting, and, of course, adding even more creepier new monsters.
While the release date is hid in the shadows, the trailer shown at the THQ Nordics presentation event is enough to leave your hairs on the back of your neck standing on end.
Edward (the aforementioned private investigator) and Emily (Pices Interactives Alone in the Dark) allow you to play as two different characters. Both characters have different stories, meaning that youll go into certain areas as Edward, while others as Emily.
Our female protagonists discover that their uncle has gone missing, and she seeks out Edwards' help to find him in the house for the mentally tired person he was committed to. What they do not anticipate is to uncover is a dangerous plot at the heart of Derceto manor, where portals lead to strange, terrifying new worlds and monsters roam free.
House of the Rising Sun is set in a gothic Louisiana 1920s, framed by woeful doom jazz, and youll have it stuck in your head for days on end, even if it's the sad one we see in the trailer.
Did I mention that Mikael Hedberg's story is the brain behind SOMA and Amnesia: The Dark Descent? Yes, there is!
Alone in the Dark will be released during Gamescom 2022, but for the time being there's little to say about the creepy RPG game, but we've heard that it's likely to ruin many a poor player, and God, I'm one.
