Despite what Atari originally said
, the hardly seen Alone in the Dark
has been pushed off into fiscal year 2008, which for Atari ends March 31. Guess Atari is going to hinge their fiscal salvation
on the sure to be über-mega-successful Atari Classics Evolved
IGN recently got some time
with the game which is supposed to be out by next March. They didn't get to touch or see any combat, but they say it looks pretty. They were also shown that items can be combined to distract enemies, for example sticking a bag of blood on the wall will distract "possessed rats" while you sneak by. Essentially they saw a glorified tech demo of something that's supposed to be out in six months. Maybe they'll have something to show by the time the Game Developers Conference rolls around in February.
