At the time when the game began its development cycle many people from Eden Games were hooked on the gripping, intense storytelling of TV shows like Lost, Prison Break and 24. They would all watch them the night before and then get together the next day and talk about them around the coffee machines. They soon realized that this is the exact same effect that they wanted their new title Alone in the Dark to have. They began to analyze those shows and think about what makes them so great. What they determined is that the common thread amongst all these shows is that each episode follows a similar formula. There is character development, storyline, plot twists, and each shows seems to end on a cliff hanger which leaves you on the edge of your seat and always keeps you coming back for more and tuning in for the next episode.
