Atari has bagged none other than Lorenzo Carcaterra to write the script for Alone in the Dark.
The New York writer has enjoyed a celebrated career of 20 years, and is perhaps best known for his 1995 non-fiction work Sleepers. It rocketed Carcaterra to worldwide acclaim and has sold more than one million copies, inspiring a film remake starring Brad Pitt and Robert De Niro. It's a great film and an even better book. Seriously.
Alone in the Dark will follow the adventures of Edward Carnaby who one night discovers an earth-shattering secret behind Central Park. It's promised to be filled with the kind of plot twists, cliff-hangers and narrative intensity we expect these days. A bit like Diagnosis Murder, you might say.
The game surprised us a year ago when we saw it in action at last year's E3, but was far from complete. Pop over to our first impressions for a closer look.
Alone in the Dark is due for release on Xbox 360 and PC this November. A PlayStation 3 version will follow sometime after.
