The upcoming ‘reimagining’ of horror classic Alone in the Dark is getting a mini-showcase on 25 May 2023, courtesy of publisher THQ Nordic and developer Pieces Interactive. While the game has largely flown under the radar since being announced in late 2022, early looks have shown off a promising, creepy horror adventure.
One early demo, played by GamesHub during a recent Plaion showcase, featured a skin-crawling trip through a dark mansion, where a swamp filled with snapping crocodiles lurked in its lower bowels. We’ll likely get a better glimpse of this mansion and its surrounds when THQ Nordic pulls the curtain of this intriguing reboot back.
As in the original game, you’ll enter the Alone in the Dark reimagining as either Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood, two curious heroes who wind up trapped inside the haunted Derceto Mansion. To escape with your life, you’ll need to fight horrors of all forms, solve a range of puzzles, and eventually discover the ‘truth’ at the heart of the haunted mansion.

According to a press release, the game’s upcoming mini-showcase is designed to ‘illuminate the mysteries that shroud Alone in the Dark‘ as the publisher ‘unveils answers to some of the most pressing questions surrounding the game.’
It’s easy to assume this will include a formal release date for the game – but we’ll have to tune in to see the grand reveals in store.
