Harrison proud of Alone in the Dark

Welcomes support from Internet.

Infogrames Directeur Gnral Dlgu Phil Harrison has identified the Internet response to Alone in the Dark as a reason to be excited about it.

"I think we have everything to be proud of about this title. In fact, it was on the Eurogamer forum that I was reading so much fan commentary," he said last week in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, "and there was a very extensive and actually very complimentary preview."

"There were pages and pages of very passionate and loyal support from the fans, and as I well know the site is pretty opinionated - and there's nothing wrong with that...well, unless you're on the receiving end which I have been on a few occasions..."

Later Harrison spoke about how he and his fellow Infogrames/Atari executive David Gardner had considered working together before, offering a rare insight into what it's like being a top executive:

"I tell you, that was the hardest thing when I was trying to brainstorm this, when I was trying to come up with a brand that we could use worldwide - every time I came up with a new name for a games company, I'd Google it and find that somebody had already taken it," he said.

"So when we were looking at what we'd need to create a successful company, and then we evaluated what Infogrames has, it ticked all the boxes."
