    Conceived by Frédérick Raynal, the creative force behind Alone in the Dark, 2Dark is a retro-styled mix of stealth, horror and adventure game. Initially set for a 2016 release, it seems like the game will finally see the light of day this year, with a new story trailer to show for:


    The premise of the game is as follows:
    Lastly, here's a video of how the gameplay will look like:


    Let's all hope it'll be out very soon™ to scare us silly!

    God, Alone in the Dark is a really sad series. It started off with a high and declined in quality ever since. I can only hope that the original creator can revive it, but I'm skeptical.

    Damn! This looks so interesting! The art direction is so strong with this one too. Great stuff, think its gonna be great.
    EDIT: Ahh, looks its just cinematics T__T thought it was a point and click type of game. Still, it looks interesting.

    The creator of AitD being behind it is what got my attention. The first two were what filled my childhood nightmares :mellow:

    I'm really liking the art style. It feels like I've already seen it somewhere tho...
    Also, the fuck is an X1? Google just gives me cars.

    Ah, thanks. Usually, I see the Xbox one shortened as Xbone, X1's new to me.
    Oh... Din't think my comment would actually be noticed by the author of the post.
    Thanks, I guess.

    Maybe I'm just being pessimistic but the whole top down view and 'retro' visuals are becoming very generic and repetitively boring. I suppose it's easier than making a 3D game though they should aim for higher standards and some modernisation.

    Not interested because of the artstyle and the top down perspective. Happy to see Frédérick back on it though. I loved the first game. Have yet to play 2 and 3, The New Nightmare was cool, but 2008 and Illumination are just complete jokes.

    Mainly because he left the project after the first Alone in the Dark, so the following ones were not made by him (from what I read, he was against milking the franchise as they planned to do and as they did).
