Alone in the Dark: Illumination and Haunted House Coming to PC
Atari has announced that two of its classic horror titles are being re-imagined for release on PC.
Two of Atari's classic, horror-themed titles are being re-imagined using modern technology and standards, set for a live unveiling of both games at PAX Prime this month in Seattle. Alone in the Dark and Haunted House are both back from the void, and we're glad to seem them back. Haunted House originally debuted in 1982 on the Atari 2600 and was recently remade a few years ago, but we still can't wait to see how Atari handles it this time around.
Alone in the Dark has had a rocky past. There have already been five Alone in the Dark entries made since the original launched on PC back in 1992, along with two atrocious Uwe Boll films. Many people consider Alone in the Dark to be the forefather of survival horror. The last time we saw a new Alone in the Dark was in 2008 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and it was met with negative reception across the board.
Hopefully, Atari will be able to impress us at PAX Prime next week with playable demos of both Haunted House and Alone in the Dark: Illumination.
