New Alone in the Dark, Haunted House games in Atari's horror revival


Despite recent strife, Atari's 2014 offensive continues with upcoming reveals of new Alone in the Dark and Haunted House games. Both games are coming to PC this fall, and Atari plans to reveal them behind closed doors at next week's PAX Prime conference in Seattle.

Alone in the Dark: Illumination marks the first entry in the horror series since the 2008 release, which failed to set the world alight despite its hi-tech fire physics. Illumination is in development at Pure FPS, a Californian studio with little info to go on except it holds the trademark to Rekoil, a game made by Plastic Piranha. Consider one of our eyebrows raised.

There's similarly little info on the new Haunted House, but we at least recognize developer Dreampainters as the Italian studio that made PC, Mac and Linux horror Anna, a game that gave Joystiq's Jessica Conditt a good enough fright back in 2012.

The news follows Atari's announcement of RollerCoaster Tycoon World last week, a new entry in the coaster-crafting series that's slowly climbing towards a 2015 plummet onto PC.
