Atari is Brining Alone in the Dark: Illumination & Haunted House Reboot to PC This Fall

By   /   Aug 20, 2014

Atari has announced ‘re-imagined’ versions of two of its horror survival titles, Haunted House and Alone in the Dark, both of which are scheduled to release on PC this fall.

The new ‘re-imagined’ version of AITD is called as Alone in the Dark: Illumination and is being developed by Pure – a mysterious developer based in Los Angeles. The game was originally launched in 1992 with a recent reboot appearing on all major consoles in 2008.

The official website of the reboot reads ‘autumn 2014’ which Atari has confirmed to be the game’s expected release window.

As for the ‘re-imagined’ Haunted House, it is being developed DreamPainters, an Italy based studio who are known for their work on PC horror title, Anna. The original title was released back in 1982 with a more recent reboot appearing on PC, Wii, and Xbox 360 in 2010.

Earlier this year, the studio’s founder affirmed that they were working on a reboot of a classic title by a major publisher. Little did we know at that time that it will turn out to be Haunted House.

Atari has also confirmed that it will be showing off both Alone in the Dark: Illumination and Haunted House in private sessions at PAX Prime Seattle, by the end of this month.

Here’s to hoping that Pure doesn’t ruin the title the way Eden Games did with 2008 AITD reboot.
