Earning the title as the first-ever 3D survival horror video game, the original Alone in the Dark created a genre that would continue to terrify gamers decades later. Released in 1992, it took inspiration from the works of H.P. Lovecraft and sent players on a paranormal investigation, requiring them to gather clues and solve puzzles while defending themselves from otherworldly creatures.

Alone in the Dark™ brings you to the abandoned town of Lorwich, Virginia. Located near Virginia’s southern border, Lorwich was a flourishing industrial town with a bustling business generated by the local mines. These prosperous days came to an end when a flood devastated the mining facility, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. An immediate evacuation left the town desolate and long-forgotten.

But the cause of the accident is still a mystery and, years later, nobody dares step foot in the town for fear of what lies there. There have been numerous reports of strange creatures and a dark, brooding fog within the town. Locals speak of an ever-present force known as The Darkness, which has cast a spell over Lorwich, enveloping everything in its path.

In Alone in the Dark: Illumination™, players will engage in face-to-face battles with demons of the underworld: Shapes, Goblins, Demons, Ghouls, Hell Hounds and Reapers. There will be four playable charaters: the Hunter, Witch, Priest and Engineer.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, the game will take you to the next level of the survival horror with new features such as the power of illumination, co-op multiplayer mode and dynamic environments.

Alone in the Dark: Illumination™, currently in closed Alpha, will be here this Fall for PC courtesy of developer Pure FPS and Atari.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
