Alone In The Dark Designer Would "Love" To Do A Remake
Survival/horror aficionados will tell you that Resident Evil was not the first video game to adopt that label. In fact, it was Alone in the Dark.
And if you hadn't noticed, high-definition remakes have been big this generation; just about every major title and series has seen at least one in the past three or four years. So what about a high-def update for the original super scary title?
Well, given the gap in technology, it could be a definite challenge. But that doesn't mean the game's designer dismisses the possibility out of hand; in fact, Frédérick Raynal told Joystiq that he'd "love" to make that happen someday.
"I would love an HD remake one day and I hope it will happen, one day. I think Infogrames holds the rights; I'm not sure about that."
The last entry in the series arrived in late 2008; Alone in the Dark: Inferno was an updated version of the PS2 version, which was just downright awful. Thankfully, developer Eden fixed a bunch of major problems and turned Inferno into a decent horror title for the PS3. But wouldn't it be great to see the original AitD title redone in high-def?
Obviously, it would have to be rebuilt from the ground up, but we still say it'd be pretty damn cool.
