Choosing your character - Edward or Emily
thumbnail
Copy protection! Ahh, the good old days...
thumbnail
The game opens with a cinematic introduction
thumbnail
A masterful shot from the intro - if this doesn't give you the creeps, I don't know what would!
thumbnail
Entering the house... what lies ahead?..
thumbnail
Exploring as Emily. This is the first room you'll get into
thumbnail
The menu allows you to choose various actions
thumbnail
Fighting a pretty scary creature. Note how the camera angle changes in a cinematic way
thumbnail
The Necronomicon is one of the books you'll discover in the game. Yes, it was inspired by Lovecraft
thumbnail
Main hall. Nice art!
thumbnail
In a library

Shall we dance?
thumbnail
A coat of arms and a hidden entrance to the tunnels.
thumbnail
"Indiana Jones - Alone in the Dark"
thumbnail
And slash!
thumbnail
Some items are related to the game's action element...
thumbnail
...and some others serve different purposes - perhaps as solutions to puzzles?..
thumbnail
Killed by a cool purple gargoyle!
thumbnail
Game Over - an elaborate row of animations, one of which is this sad picture...
thumbnail
Evil rules in the house!..
thumbnail
Edward is relaxing in the garden, admiring the statues. This is definitely one of the brightest, most peaceful scenes in the game
thumbnail
You'll find books - but also personal diaries. This story begins in a spooky way already...
thumbnail
Ahh, just look at this... Zombies gathered for a lunch. Please! Monsieur! Try this delicious... err... cerveaux humains!
thumbnail
Arrrgh!.. Ahoy, matey!.. Seriously now - one of the bosses you'll have to fight in the game is a pirate
thumbnail
Pulling out your revolver at the strange painting... Relax, Ed - it's okay now...
thumbnail
Cool cinematic angles abound in this innovative game. I see some items ahead...
thumbnail
Some rooms are dark (hence the need for an oil lamp). And you are alone. That's how the game got its title, see?
thumbnail
What, you had a nightmare? Don't jump out of the bed with a dagger, dude...
thumbnail
Being attacked by rats in the basement. I should have never booked this vacation...
thumbnail
Oh wow! A mysterious brownish cave, a horrifying huge monster coming out... dramatic, isn't it?
thumbnail
You are hit by some crazy boulder (or energy ball). After a few awkward (yet realistic!) animations, you die
thumbnail
One of the close-ups of the dynamic camera. Yeah, low polygon count - so what? At that time it was state of the art. And, this game lets you drop any item anywhere, as you can see
thumbnail
Behold me! The mighty master of black balls!!... ... Ok. Ok. I could've rephrased that
thumbnail
Fighting a giant spider! Come on, Edward, show him who is the boss!!.. ... (it's still the spider, but you get the point!)
thumbnail
Traversing a difficult maze. Falling into the water
thumbnail
Part of the dying animation - serene, tranquil, macabre, and artsy in a disturbing way
thumbnail
This cave is completely dark. Even with the lamp you can only see so much
thumbnail
A beautiful place - but is it as peaceful as it seems?..
thumbnail
Here is a example of the camera angles: In this shot, this is the right hand side. Both stairs (not shown, only the one on the right) can lead to the hallway.

Yikes!!..

I knew I had to buy some creme against dry skin for him

You enter the mansion... and the door closes behind you
thumbnail
You found a lamp
thumbnail
Action menu and inventory
thumbnail
You push the wardrobe towards the window to prevent a zombie from jumping in
thumbnail
Broken window? I didn't do it!..
thumbnail
Ahh, finally a weapon! It's... a bow
thumbnail
You fell through a crack. Apparently that was fatal
thumbnail
Bow-fighting...
thumbnail
...and sword-fighting!

Hey, that's a weapon! Finally!
thumbnail
'Hey, listen, don't take it personally. I love your fashion sense. Dig the stylish purple vest, I do. But I just get all nervous when people try to slowly kill me, you know what I'm saying?..'
thumbnail
The death scene is beautiful. Chopin music, zombie slowly carrying the corpse away... aesthetically pleasing
thumbnail
Yup, that's how it is. Better luck next time, Em!..
thumbnail
Look, you should certainly fire whoever is responsible for security in this villa; but don't fire your interior decorator!
thumbnail
Oh wow! That's an item! Very nice, zoomed-in, 3D... item
thumbnail
One of the game's famous "Booh!..." moments. You just "triggered" this attack. Very scary and cool
thumbnail
Another beautiful Game Over screen
thumbnail
Bathroom. Hey, I really need to wash my hair... don't suppose you've got good shampoo here? No? What, the zombie used it all?.. Oh, I see...
thumbnail
It's really nice you put those gargoyle statue here... adds to the flavor and all... wait... IT'S NOT A STATUE?!!..
thumbnail
Playing as Edward. Taking out the lamp. Edward should consider shaving off the moustache. He looks like a Salvador Dali wannabe, just without the demonic eyes
