Released in 1992, Alone in the Dark is notable for being one of the original survival horror games, before Resident Evil coined the term in 1996. The most recent game failed to reboot the series, despite some neat ideas like an on-person inventory, real-time damage, and some of the best fire effects ever. At a GDC postmortem, series creator Frédérick Raynal expressed interest in an HD remake, saying “I would love an HD remake one day and I hope it will happen, one day.” I hope it’ll happen too. It’s been too long since we’ve had a new Alone in the Dark.
There really isn’t a reason the series shouldn’t get remade, especially since that seems to be the popular trend with older video games these days, including Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, Resident Evil, and Devil May Cry later this year. Now’s a pretty great time for something like this to happen, since this year marks the series’ 20th anniversary. So get on it, Atari.
