Episode 18 – Alone in the DarkDecember 2, 2012
Hey there Blockers!
Time for episode 18. This time around, we’re talking about the grandaddy of 3D survival horror games, 1992’s Alone in the Dark.
Hero-U, the new game from Quest for Glory’s Lori and Corey Cole has successfully funded! They just made it to their 400,000 dollar goal. Congrats!
I wasn’t quite correct last show when I said Chris Roberts’ Star Citizen had funded. It had a day or so left and instead of raising 5 million dollars, they raised 6.5 million! Incredible.
A new remake of 1998’s Baldur’s Gate is already out and ready for purchase.
Peter Molyneux has launched a kickstarter to bankroll a new god game in the vein of Populous. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
I also found a new site where you can play an online version of Dune 2. This is a really great port to the web.
Finally, if anyone is interested in health, fitness and nutrition, check out this cool new podcast, Fit for Radio! It’s awesome.
Whew! After all that news, we get to the meat of the show, Infogrames’ 1992 game, Alone in the Dark. We take a look at all the usual suspects here and cover a lot of cool info.

Next time I’m doing something a little different. I’ll be doing an in-depth review of the new game X-COM: Enemy Unknown. Kind of a look at an old series in a new incarnation.
