A quick news bit has come our way from Atari, as the publisher has announced that Lorenzo Carcattera, the New York Times best-selling author, will be writing the script for Alone in the Dark. The newest AITD is set in New York City's Central Park, so it's bound to have a great deal of ambiance with a fairly scary nightime setting. The game is currently in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbx 360, and Windows PCs by Eden Games.
"Carcaterra delivers riveting stories filled with graphic narrative that have earned him international acclaim," said David Nadal, Studio Head, Eden Games. "Gripping, compelling storylines are the basis of what differentiates a good game from a blockbuster. With Alone in the Dark, Carcaterra has crafted a meticulously engaging storyline that will grab the player from the start and send them on a journey through Central Park they will never forget."
"Alone in the Dark was a challenge which allowed me to bring a realistic feel to an apocalyptic situation facing New York City and really dig into the Central Park conspiracy idea," said Lorenzo Carcaterra. "It also allowed me to write for hard-edged characters, some good, some bad, all forced to confront a force whose power they could never imagine. The story never stalls, always moves in overdrive and the characters zoom right along at warp speed, stopping long enough along the way to say a few lines that keep driving the plot forward. The end result is, I hope, a roller-coaster of a thrill ride that should be tons of fun to play."
Look for Alone in the Dark to hit shelves this Fall.
