A suspicious suicide. A chilling curse. A malevolent power. Finally, a wicked dark secret. This is Derceto, a legendary Louisiana mansion where, against your better judgment, you're drawn into a world of shadows to explore the darker side of Jeremy Hartwood's imagination. Despite a paralyzing sense of personal danger, your quest for truth drives you to investigate the old house. But, you didn't know that, by entering Derceto, you'll be plunged into the daily nightmare that was Jeremy Hartwood's life. You weren't prepared for the torturous howls that resound from deep within its halls. You didn’t foresee the shadowy corridors that seemingly have no end. You couldn't anticipate the brooding, gloom-filled rooms, the pervasive weight of dread, the heavy sense of evil that gills the atmosphere and the very house itself. Had you known, you might have refused this task. But alas, you accepted, and now you must make your way through this spine-tingling adventure alone... and in the dark.
Alone in the Dark is a classic! I was a teenager when this game was out - the ad lib soundblaster music and the 256 colour VGA graphics seemed so hi tech at the time. The game has a brilliant atmoshphere - creaks with every footstep make you feel on edge the whole time you're playing. The mansion is quiet - too quiet - until something appears out of nowhere to try and kill you. I didn't get very far in this game when I played it, but I still have fond memories of what I played.
