THQ Nordic has announced the acquisition of another classic gaming IP in the form of the seminal survival horror franchise Alone in the Dark.
Wow, THQ Nordic is going ham. It would be nice to see this franchise come back strong after hitting rock bottom with their last couple of outings.
Oh god that inventory system...
Who was asking for another Alone in the Dark
I was too. These guys are going on a buying spree. First kingdom of amalur now this? These guys will be one of my fav publishers
YES This has the potential to be a great survival horror franchise. The music in the last Alone in the Dark was fantastic. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I loved the music back in the old Alone in the Dark games too.
They should bring Christian Slater and Tara Ried back for the reboot. Really bring some credibility and class to this series.
I loved the first 3. Remaster the original trilogy and give it to me :P
One day this franchise will rise from the ashes and take back the survival horror throne... one day.
Hell yeah. Go ahead and remake "A New Nightmare". Also go ahead and erase Inferno from history.
The reboot featured in the thumbnail wasn't a bad game. Just clunky. Since then though, the series was raped for whatever brand recognition it may have still had. THQ Nordic have been doing well with their acquired IPs. Let's hope they revive the series.
dude wtf Where is all the money coming from?
That's what I was saying, like didn't they filed for bankruptcy few years ago. Anyways its great that they buying unused ips that companies abandoned. We need more of that in this industry.
from the back seat of their camero, the franchises they bought we're like a buck fifty each
A lot of potential in this series, plus the name just sounds good.
If done well, it could be a pretty decent "nicotine patch" for the lack of Silent Hill.
Right I think get on with making some games now....please!
franchise hoarding ... a serious problem
The 2008-reboot was ridiculously ambitious, if it wouldn't have been almost unplayable it could've been the greatest horror game last gen. I hope they'll go in a similiar direction in terms of design and presentation
Hmmm I wonder if THQ Nordic plan to make this their own RE franchise, that would be interesting because the original RE was heavily inspired by the OG Alone in the Dark series.
I enjoyed Alone in the Dark a lot on ps2. What an underrated gem, I love it when developers innovate, they can get my money. I'm tired of the same gameplay loop in every game.
