Alone in the Dark

Alone in the Dark is a 1992 survival horror game developed by Infogrames. The game has spawned several sequels, as part of the Alone in the Dark series, and was one of the first survival horror games. It has an ESRB: T rating. In this game, player assumes the role of either Edward Carnby, a private investigator who is sent to find a piano in the loft for an antique dealer, or Emily Hartwood, niece of the late Jeremy Hartwood who dies by hanging himself, who is also interested in finding the piano because she believes a secret drawer in it has a note in which Jeremy explains his suicide. This game has been adapted to the Wii platform by Nintendo.

Features

In Alone in the Dark, players are given the option of choosing between a male or female character (Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood), and are then trapped inside the haunted mansion of Derceto after dark. Gameplay begins in the attic (the place of Jeremy's suicide by hanging), and is then tasked with exploring the mansion in order to find a way out while avoiding, outsmarting or defeating various supernatural enemies including slave zombies, giant bipedal rat-like creatures, and other even more bizarre foes. The player character can find weapons such as firearms, kitchen knives, and swords along the way to use. Combat plays a partial role in the gameplay, as gameplay also involves solving a particular puzzle. The game involves exploration and puzzle-solving, and searching the house for clues to advance the story and learn more about what happened before the player arrived.
