News: Well known novelist Lorenzo Carcaterra will be writing Edward Carnby's next adventure.



Atari has announced that Lorenzo Carcaterra, who wrote the books Sleepers and Apaches, has been brought on as a scriptwriter for the new Alone in the Dark. Carcaterra has also written for Law & Order, a useful skill when matched with Atari's "TV season" theme for AitD.

"Carcaterra delivers riveting stories filled with graphic narrative that have earned him international acclaim," said David Nadal, Studio Head, Eden Games. "Gripping, compelling storylines are the basis of what differentiates a good game from a blockbuster. With Alone in the Dark, Carcaterra has crafted a meticulously engaging storyline that will grab the player from the start and send them on a journey through Central Park they will never forget."

"Alone in the Dark was a challenge which allowed me to bring a realistic feel to an apocalyptic situation facing New York City and really dig into the Central Park conspiracy idea," said Lorenzo Carcaterra. "It also allowed me to write for hard-edged characters, some good, some bad, all forced to confront a force whose power they could never imagine. The story never stalls, always moves in overdrive and the characters zoom right along at warp speed, stopping long enough along the way to say a few lines that keep driving the plot forward. The end result is, I hope, a roller-coaster of a thrill ride that should be tons of fun to play."

Instead of the traditional "cinematic experience" most games strive for, Alone in the Dark will be formatted like a TV show with levels broken up into 35-40 minutes "episodes." It was previously scheduled for a late 2006 release on the PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Atari has yet to set a concrete release date since the game was pushed back into 2007.

We'll have more on Alone in the Dark soon.
