Atari has announced their plans to reboot two of their horror classics, including Haunted House, which released in 1992 making it one of the earliest examples of survival horror, and Alone in the Dark: Illumination. At least the bar has been set about as low as possible after the disaster that was the 2008 reboot. As a series, Alone in the Dark has struggled for some time. I was almost positive we wouldn’t be hearing from it again, or at least not for some time.

Both of these games will be coming to PC in Autumn of 2014. According to a teaser site for Alone in the Dark: Illumination, development is being handled by a studio called Pure. Haunted House is in the  hands of indie developer Dreampainters, the studio behind the PC indie horror game Anna. The last two Haunted House games were more PG-13 in nature but I would guess these games will be much darker and creepier.
