Hello old games lovers,
No, I’m not talking about the awful movie of 2005, but about the original game, dated June 1992, which was one of the milestones in the genre of advenure and a forerunner of the survival horror subgenre made famous by Resident Evil (1996). We can say that Alone in the Dark is a grandfather of Resident: third person perspective, 3D environment and horror atmosphere. Obviously being a 1992 game the graphics are more rudimental (we see very big and blocky polygons) and the action is quite slow but it’s possibile to feel a beat of fear while wandering in the mansion. It’s definitely a game everyone should play at least once in the life. Sometimes it makes me laugh playing it because some movements are very goofy but if you think that this is a 3D game and it was released in 1992 (while some of the most important were released from 1996) it’s absolutely remarkable.
So let’s celebrate Alone in the Dark 25th anniversary!
