1930s-inspired noir horror game White Night, created by former Alone in the Dark developers, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 3, developer OSome Studio has announced.

Set in Boston in the 1930s, White Night is described as an "old-school survival horror adventure" that features a unmistakable black-and-white film noir look.

"We wanted to create something that people would enjoy, but also something that would stand out as unusual and refreshing in today’s survival horror landscape," OSome Studio co-founder and creative director Ronan Coiffec said on the PlayStation Blog.

"That meant revisiting the themes that made classic horror games like the original Alone in the Dark so gripping: mature storytelling, strong characters, compelling environments, and equal respect for tension and terror," he added. "White Night is a good old ghost story full of mystery, poetry, alchemy, and suspense."

Like many horror games before it, White Night is set in a creepy deserted mansion.

To get inspired, Coiffec and his team listened to jazz music from the 1930s, pored over black-and-white films of the era, and even rented a real mansion in Normandy where the team stayed for a week to "steep ourselves in the setting."
