The Snitch, a leaker that has proven to be very reliable over the last few months, has another teaser for us. Their latest hint at what's to come is a quote that, through some cursory googling, can be directly linked to Alone in the Dark:
The line, "Being afraid of the dark is what keeps most of us alive," is directly lifted from 2005's Alone in the Dark movie. Naturally, fans are taking this to mean something related to the game series is on the way. It's unclear at this point if we're talking about a remake or potentially a brand new entry.
As far as we're aware, THQ Nordic holds the rights to the horror franchise, and wouldn't you know it, the publisher has a showcase in just a few days, on 12th August. It all seems to be lining up pretty nicely, but obviously we should take this lightly for now. That said, The Snitch hasn't really put a foot wrong so far.
What do you think? Will we see something Alone in the Dark related in the near future? Do you want this series to make a comeback? Switch the lights off in the comments section below.
After the last attempted come back, I'm happy for this series to stay in the past. The last decent one being The New Nightmare for the Dreamcast.
If they remade the first three Alone in the Dark games in the same way they remade the Resident Evil series I would actually really be happy. Especially since everything Resident Evil did, Alone in the Dark did first.
Keep like the originals with modern looks and I'm in.. otherwise not that interested .
@pip_muzz Atrai sold the franchise to THQ in 2018. So whatever is coming up will have fresh creatives at the helm. And modern THQ has a much better track record than modern Atari.
@PegasusActual93 I would be over the moon at REmake style remakes for AitD.
I preferred life when people didn't leak and spoil things for a few personal internet points.
I'm in the vast minority of people who genuinely really enjoyed the last one on PS3... it obviously had some issues but there were a lot of great ideas beyond the jank, so I'm down for this if it's true.
There are no surprises anymore.
I remember loving The New Nightmare on PS1.
The atmosphere was amazing at the time.
I wonder if it will show up on Plus Premium as a classic.
My cousin had it on PS2 actually. Lots of people complained about it being cross gen.
oh hells yeah.
They're clearly teasing an Iron Maiden game.
@Athrum it's a new nickelodeon game based on Are You Afraid of the Dark.
So they aren't leaking solid information, but doing it in a cryptic, riddler-esque fashion to satisfy their own ego on the internet? Woo. Such fun.
I'm not a fan of leakers in the slightest. And that's without all the fuss.
I loved the 1st one on PC, the sound design was terrifying. I remember how the wooden floor creaked under the character's steps... then a couple of scenes, with the dancing monsters, the "bird" coming through the window, etc... really scary game. Played it many many times.
Alone in the Dark (2008 PS3) was really boring. No doubt there is huge potential for it to be great in the right hands. Callisto Protocol not far away, RE4 remake looking much scarier than the original, Dead Space remake has huge potential to be really good gory horror, RE9 rumours looking really creepy, Silent Hill rumours don't seem to go away and now this Alone in the Dark rumour. Actual scary Horror video games seem to be on the up again?
Oh my good. Please make it a bit like the last game from Atari.
I really enjoyed this, even if it was a bit flawed.
I achieved 1000G on X360 and cleared the Wii version 2 times.
Modern THQ is where I lose my hope lol
Their recent track record has been disappointing to say the least.
I've not seen Atari anywhere in a while, so at least there could've been some hope of some redemption
>Actual scary Horror video games seem to be on the up again?
And it's getting me hyped as hell. Tired of these generic 3rd person handholding games that all play the same (if they even let you play that is). Most games are too scared to even let you fail.
Time for some games that actually scare you
@DiscoStuUK I enjoyed the PS3 game too.
The one on PS3 was hilariously edgy. It had a "the story is so bad it's good" kind of vibe and I actually enjoyed playing through it. There were some decent ideas but poor execution in there as well. If they refined those mechanics and reworked the way they tell the story then it could be a great experience.
I felt like the last one was crushed under it's own ambition. It tried some new cool things but for whatever reason didn't work out as great, but definitely didn't deserve all the hate it received.
Thought that The Evil Within took many gameplay and design notes from AitD and ran with it.
@BoldAndBrash my thoughts exactly. I think it's much easier for devs to put on screen wave after wave of monster type enemies coming at you rather than coming up with new unique ways to scare the player. Take RE4, 5 and 6 for an example of this where its just wave after wave of monster type humans coming at you to shoot down and then move onto the next area checkpoint and do the same with no new real genuine scares. That's why I liked the new RE7 so much and for me was true return to form in the series. I like to be tested in a horror game like wow I wasn't expecting that kinda reactions or making a girly sound when Alien Isolation scared me the first time playing it
@Anke I agree its way cooler to get a big bombshell hits out of nowhere.
@Flaming_Kaiser the good old days
It was atrocious on the PS2 and PS3. Whoever wants to bring this back need to rework it from the ground up.
And that will take money & effort.
Shout out to all those Inferno lovers on PS3.
Inferno is one of the most memorable games on PS3 for me. As has been said it had A LOT of jank, but it also had a lot of interesting ideas that didn't quite pan out. I still thought it was a fascinating game and I would love to see a game that refined a lot of those ideas with better writing lol
Is that the ps1 game about a boy & his dog lol
@Anke Now something as big as a Twisted Metal reveal is ruïned by some crappy leaker its such a pity.
The last single-player Alone In The Dark had quite good ideas, and it was clearly rushed by people who did not understand game development. The fire and physics mechanics were very interesting and unique for the time, and it had interesting ideas. If they give it care and time it deserves, this franchise could turn out great.
@Flaming_Kaiser @Gloamin @Shepherd_Tallon @Anke Same here guys, miss when leaks weren't a real thing or rather I didn't pay attention to their existence because I wasn't as internet savvy during my childhood.
@KidBoruto It now looks more like they are testijg the response.
Yes pls to new alone in the dark
