Alone in the Dark creator Frédérick Raynal has a new game coming out. In 2Dark, players take on the role of a former detective who must discover all the secrets of a place called Gloomywood to find out the truth behind a string of child abductions.
“Plagued by a string of child abductions, darkness hangs over the once-picturesque city of Gloomywood like a curse,” the game’s press release description says. “Having seen his own wife slain and children taken, former detective Mr. Smith vows to find justice and bring an end to the misery.”
In 2Dark, players must use both stealth and cunning to investigate the secret behind the child abductions, as well as discover Gloomywood’s macabre secrets. Players must come up with plans in how to escape each level by sticking to the shadows and stepping carefully. Mr. Smith also has limited supplies, so every bullet, every flashlight battery, must count. On top of that, the rescued kids act like children: they’ll cry and and fidget and make your escape that much harder. And, as a smoker, Mr. Smith needs smoking breaks, but the more he smokes, the more he coughs and sound can alert the enemy, too.
“Use your cunning to infiltrate Gloomywood’s bastions of cruelty. Investigate to uncover the secrets of the deranged psychopaths within, seek retribution for their crimes, and bring the children to safety,” reads the press release. “If only it were so simple…”
