In 1992, a horror game called Alone at night premiered, that was notable for the truth that it had been basically performing a large amount of what would later make Resident Evil so popularthe fixed camera angles, the deliberate gunplayonly it had much more purple inside it.
It had been a very good game, and did sufficiently that two sequels were released through the 1990s. In 2001, though, that which was originally planned as a fourth game finished up learning to be a reboot, as Alone at night: THE BRAND NEW Nightmare came back to where it started by copying plenty of Resident Evils visual trappings and setting the overall game in today’s day. It sucked.
Seven years later, in 2008, the series was rebooted again on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, as soon as again, it sucked. And in 2015 the Alone at night franchise had reached a fresh low with a four-player online shooter that has been even worse.
Which could have been plenty of to kill the brand off, but no, listed below are new owners THQ Nordic announcing another reboot, this time around bringing the overall game back again to its original setting, in its original timeframe and starring its two original characters.

The state pitch, filled with the line that its a love letter to the 90s cult classic horror game:
Go back to Derceto Manor in this reimagination of Alone at night, a love letter to the 90s cult classic horror game.
Deep in the 1920s south, Emily Hartwoods uncle went missing. As well as detective agency Edward Carnby, she embarks on a journey to Derceto Manor to discover the secrets of the mysterious place and the circumstances of her relatives vanishing.

At the intersection of reality, mystery, and insanity, an adventure waits which will challenge your core beliefs.

Its nice that has a lot more in keeping with the initial than any attempt at a relaunch or reboot. But nonetheless…so a lot of the selling point of the initial was its unique and gorgeous sense of style, and I think it is incredible which were 2 decades into this series being rebooted and nobody actually making the games spent some time working that out!
