Game news Alone in the Dark: a Resident Evil-style remake on the run, first images and info!

Alone in the Dark is a founding franchise of survival horror, but which will have definitely struggled to last: THQ Nordic has just given it a new chance with a remake of the first episode inspired by the greatest.

The return of a classic

Alone in the Dark was released on 3DO in 1992: a true pillar of video games, the game piloted by Frenchman Frédéric Reynal struck a blow for its horrifying atmosphere and its revolutionary 3D management. A founding opus that will have given life to several sequels, a reboot and even a film, unfortunately with decreasing success and a brand losing a bit in popularity. The franchise is nonetheless cult for a whole host of reasons and as we announced a few days ago, THQ Nordic (which picked up the rights in 2018) probably wanted to make something new out of it. A project visibly unveiled during its showcase on August 12… that is today.

In the end, we won’t have to wait for this digital event to know the ins and outs since the Belgian retailer Smartoys has created the game’s product sheet before its time, revealing images and synopsis. VSo here is Alone in the Dark, a remake of the very first game with a third-person camera, placed behind the shoulder. Like a certain Resident Evil 2, yes.

The Haunting of the Bly Manor

This total overhaul of the original component is therefore operated by Pieces Interactivestudio having already given birth to Magicka 2 with a screenplay reworked by Mikael Hedberg. The latter is not just anyone since he has already worked on survival-horror hits like Amnesia or SOMA.
