The Original Video Game Trilogy ‘Alone in the Dark’ Is Getting a Remake












As an early PC gamer, 1992’s “Alone in the Dark” was one of the first titles I remember having in my gaming library. I spent many nights navigating the frustrating camera angles of a polygonal world in search of the secrets of the Derceto Mansion, while attempting awkwardly timed attacks against the enemies that filled its hallways. To say the original gameplay was frustrating would be an understatement. Still, as the godfather of survival horror, it’s a game I fondly remember (for better or worse) over the past 30 years, which is why I was thrilled to learn that THQ Nordic and Pieces Interactive are reimagining the original “Alone in the Dark” trilogy for modern audiences.

Announced during the THQ showcase, the game is described as a “love letter” to the original series. Players will return to the Deep South of the 1920s in search of answers regarding the disappearance of Emily Hartwood’s uncle. “Alone in the Dark” will once again allow players to choose to play as private detective Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood herself and embark on a journey to Derceto Manor, which in reimagining is now a home for the sick. mental. You will encounter strange residents, nightmarish realms, dangerous monsters and eventually uncover a rising evil plot.

This re-imagining of the original trilogy aims to scare you to the bone and returns to infamous locations with an all-new story and mythical locations to explore. Alone in the Dark features a noir setting with classic Lovecraft horror elements, where the familiar meets the surreal.

“Alone in the Dark” is being developed by Pieces Interactive in Sweden and will be coming to PC, Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5.
