Attack of the Fanboy

Alone In The Dark Creator’s 2Dark Out Next Month

by Mike Guarino


The Alone in the Dark series has sadly gone further and further down the drain in terms of quality over the past several years, with it seeming like the series may never get back on the right track again. However, the person responsible for creating that series, Frédérick Raynal, has taken it upon himself to create a brand new series that looks to take survival horror back to a more simple and retro approach.

The game is called 2Dark, which is a 2D survival horror game that has players taking control of a man named Mr. Smith. Mr. Smith is a former detective who is looking for his kidnapped children following the murder of his wife. The following is a brief synopsis:

“Plagued by a string of child abductions, darkness hangs over the once-picturesque city of Gloomywood like a curse, smothering hope and paralyzing its citizens with fear. Having seen his own wife slain and his children taken, former detective Mr. Smith vows to find justice and bring an end to the misery. But, if only it were so simple. From dubious streets and suspicious dwellers, to the pack of smokes in your pocket and the betrayal of your own footsteps, danger infests every corner and crevice. Doubt everything in this trap of a city where death is the only certainty.”

2Dark is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 10th. Those who elect to play the game on PC through Steam will be able to get an exclusive deluxe edition of the game that comes with an uncensored art book that is called The Art of 2Dark, along with the game’s original soundtrack that includes 21 orchestral tracks. The following is a list of the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for the game:
