THQ Nordic buy Alone In The Dark and Act Of War series, might consider sequels

Continuing to hoover up every neglected video game series that's remembered half-fondly, THQ Nordic today announced they're buying the rights to horror series Alone In The Dark and Eugen's real-time strategy 'em up Act Of War. These two had been owned by The Creature Wearing The Skin Of Atari - who largely seem poor carers for old series, while The Creature Wearing The Skin Of…

Together Alone In The Dark

Whoever's currently wearing the withered Atari skinsuit plans to release a new Alone In The Dark game before year's end, and whether the fact they're only putting out the first trailer now is a sign of confidence or otherwise is for looser tongues than mine to speculate about. I'm too preoccupied with the distinct absence of alone time in Alone In the Dark: Illumination, given…

Atari Are All Alone In The Dark Haunted House

Perhaps Atari is being meta. That's my theory. Two old, undesirable game series returning, both about things that should be dead coming back to life. Again. It's awfully clever. So it is that we have yet another attempt to revive the never-good Alone In The Dark, and the Atari 2600 cartridge game, Haunted House. Both now have their first trailers, below. Neither seeming to have…

Paradise Lost: Test Drive, V-Rally Dev Eden Shut Down

Truth be told, things at Test Drive Unlimited, V-Rally, and Alone in the Dark developer Eden Games haven't been going particularly well for quite some time. The sorry saga began with a gigantic round of layoffs and a nice, breezy Sunday afternoon strike in the park, and now – two years later – the final nail's been hammered into the coffin. Atari, as it turns…

Alone In The Dark: “Cinematic” Trailer

What's described as a cinematic trailer for Alone In The Dark has appeared, and will appear again below the jump. I think I'd like games to be a bit more distinct when selling themselves via trailers, beyond emulating the visual styles of film trailers. In order for game trailers to look like film trailers, they need to be about 90% cutscene, 9% logos, and around…

Alone In The Dark: Chairs On Fire

A new video for Alone In The D/Park has appeared, and it nicely shows off all those gimmicks that will hopefully make it something special. Setting fire to chairs is pretty much what I look for in gaming, so it's off to a good start. Flipping crikey, Atari must be hoping this is good. In our darkest hours, we know you're there for us, Gametrailers.

Man vs Chair

The new Alone in the Dark game was announced a couple of years back now, and it's remained something of a mystery since - it's managed to carry almost the same air of quiet potential that Alan Wake has, in fact. With it creeping towards release at last though, here's an (ugh) 'gameplay' trailer, which gets across some of the intended atmosphere, but still doesn't…
