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: https://advgamer.blogspot.com/2018/08/game-99-alone-in-dark-1992-introduction.html
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 GOG.com (which is the cheapest way to get a hold of these games if you feel like playing along).
