Dev Diary for Alone in the Dark

Dev Diary for Alone in the Dark

Alone In The Dark is a hotly anticipated horror & survival videogame. Lead Designer Hervé Sliwa tells us more about the challenges he had (and his team) to face while developing this title, and gives us many tidbits of info at the same time. Needless to say, this is a very interesting read.

Same freakin' thing every single screenshot/ review YAWN.

"use real life rules blah blah"

Apparently in real life all we do is pierce cars, burn chairs and pierce those liquid things or whatever.

Pffft, anyway why do I care...*goes back to playing GTA4*

Ugly amateur crap with good world physic. AITD1 was damn revolution game, every else Alone was only boring shit. Looking forward to Siren:new translation, Fatal frame 4 (damn Wii exclusivity) and RE5 ofc. And I hope in Parasite Eve for PS3.

Parasite eve my god one can only hope. Although the 3rd one is on mobile phones wtf?! And since square are doing multi platform now I would think if they did release it, it could possibly end up multiplatform.

I like the direction of this alone in the dark but im not sure wether it will be the complete package yet. Im gonna wait for reviews.

lolol 'Apparently in real life all we do is pierce cars, burn chairs and pierce those liquid things or whatever.'

too true...

i have to wait until all the kiddies at my house are asleep to play gta4... sigh =/

aotd5 has some serious potential, but i really think the game needs more gunplay and some serious beasts... sure stabbing a packet of blood is good stuff and all but it's not the smartest thing to do when some nemesis (re3) type monster is chasing you down relentlessly

And those aren't real life rules? Pierce a car and gas will pour out? ( other games rules didn't alow that ), pass wood piece by fire and it will burn ( other games rules didn't alow that ).

Stop being a old thinker, and think outside the box... why have the "real life physics", if you can't apply them in a cool/fun and fantastic way ( the one that real life doesn't condone ).

People sometimes say the darnest things.

I enjoyed reading this. It's always interesting to hear why the developers wanted to create this specific type of game regardless of it becoming a success or not.

About the game

    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (0 minute ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
