The Adventure Gamer: Reviewing Alone in the Dark (1992)

Apologies for the lack of updates here for a while, I'll try and add a few posts here over the coming weeks.

For now though, I've been working on a playthrough and review of the classic 1992 survival-horror adventure Alone in the Dark for The Adventure Gamer.

Catch all the updates starting with the Introduction post here:

It's a game which I have played a few times, but not for quite a few years, so I wonder how fondly I will feel about it after playing it again. At the moment I feel very positive about it but I've only played the very start.

It was an amazing experience to play back in the early 90s (I think I probably didn't play it in 1992, more likely in 93? can't really remember though!). Proper 3D polygonal characters, orchestral soundtrack and voice-overs (mostly from the CD-ROM version).

I have both a boxed version of the Alone in the Dark trilogy, and own the games on (which is the cheapest way to get a hold of these games if you feel like playing along).

  1. I loved the first one. For some reason I couldn’t get into the later ones. I remember it having.some cut scenes that used some crest camera angles to give a more cinematic effect. Of course the last time I played it was in 1992, so I’m not sure how I would view it now.
