Trivia: Alone in the Dark

The video game series

  • Franchise Killer: The 2008 game was most likely this. The poor critical reception of the 2008 game killed off the series. Even a rerelease that fixes quite a few of the bugs wasn't able to save it. It's even worse when you consider that even though the game developers delayed the release of the game for three years to try to stave off the bad publicity generated by Uwe Boll's failed film adaptation, some elements from the film still made it into the new game.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In the 2008 reboot, Carnby is voiced by James McCaffrey, the voice of Max Payne.
    • Believe it or not, one of Crowley's henchmen in the 2008 reboot is voiced by Jason Griffith.
  • What Could Have Been: Capcom was suppose to release AITD 3 for the Japanese market, but decided not to go with it.
  • Working Title: The first game went through many working titles, such as "Nightmare in Derceto" (from the name of the mansion), "Doom in Derceto" and simply "In the Dark".
