Frederick Raynal, the designer behind the original(and best) Alone in the Dark has returned to his horror roots in a new retro style survival game titled Gloomywood.
The announcement trailer follows a father leading a group of his kids and their friends throughout an aptly gloomy house, avoiding a serial killer who has trapped them inside. The trailer features adorable voxel graphics that contrast excellently with the extremely morbid theme.
Raynal’s self-proclaimed sidekick Thierry Platon stated that Frederick “wants to make a real infiltration game, as playable as gloomy!” It’s an interesting way to describe it, but judging by the trailer it seems to fit.
I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on this one. Look for more details as they’re released.
