Alone in the Dark goes episodic

Atari announces a new structure for the next generation of its action survival game.


Alone in the Dark (2008)

Alone in the Dark, the survival game first released in 1992, is getting a new, episode-based structure for its 2007 release. Developer Eden Games is splitting the game into distinct episodes within a season-style format, which David Nadal, game director at Eden Games, hopes will keep players "permanently hooked into the engrossing story surrounding the mysteries of Central Park and beyond."

Each episode will contain approximately 30-40 minutes of gameplay and close on a cliff-hanger--a format that has been drawn from the success of TV dramas. Launching a saved game will trigger a video summary of the previous episode.
