Developed by Pieces Interactive, known in particular for their work on Magicka 2, the remake of Alone in the Dark was officially announced last August. Since then, the details had remained relatively under wraps, leaving fans waiting for more information.

In this remake, players will reunite with familiar series protagonists Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood. Emily’s uncle has mysteriously disappeared, leading them both on a perilous exploration of Derceto Manor, an asylum home to strange residents and monstrous creatures.

Alone in the Dark made an impression with its original release in 1992, considered one of the first survival-horror games.
