2Dark

From Frédérick Raynal, the creator of Alone in the Dark® and pioneer of survival-horror, 2Dark is a grim journey of stealth and courage into the heart of corruption. Use your cunning to infiltrate Gloomywood’s bastions of cruelty. Investigate to uncover the secrets of the deranged psychopaths within, seek retribution for their crimes, and bring the children to safety.
Plagued by a string of child abductions, darkness hangs over the once-picturesque city of Gloomywood like a curse, smothering hope and paralyzing its citizens with fear. Having seen his own wife slain and his children taken, former detective Mr. Smith vows to find justice and bring an end to the misery. But, if only it were so simple. From dubious streets and suspicious dwellers, to the pack of smokes in your pocket and the betrayal of your own footsteps, danger infests every corner and crevice. Doubt everything in this trap of a city where death is the only certainty.

A NEW STEALTH-HORROR ADVENTURE

  • A nerve-wracking experience of ruthless consequences with only your wits to guide you.
  • Perfect your plan to infiltrate intricately handcrafted levels and escape with the children.
  • Stick to the shadows and step carefully. Light and sound can be your allies, and your undoing.
  • Supplies are limited. From flashlight batteries to bullets, make every item count.
  • Investigate every nook and cranny to expose the sinister secrets behind the abductions, uncover new areas, and find every child.
  • Kids will be kids. Stop for too long and they'll fidget and cry, putting both of you in harm's way.
  • Break for a smoke to save your progress, but be wary of noisy coughing fits, and remember, smoking really does kill.

  • Deeply atmospheric and profoundly disturbing, 2Dark presents a seductive mix of lo-fi Hitman-like stealth coupled with Hotline Miami claustrophobia induced adrenaline rushes. The presentation and initial pricing will not be to everyone’s taste but for horror fans, here is one to remember.

  • Alone in the Dark's creator is back to the horror genre with a stealth puzzle game full of gore and gloomy feelings. The idea is nice but flawed with some technical issues.

  • The creator of survival horror delivers a very unique blend of stealth-action and surreal adventure. It is not as groundbreaking as the original Alone in the Dark, but still deserves a look.

  • Frederick Raynal's new game is a pretty good re-imagining of the genre he spawned with Alone in the Dark. 25 years later, this 2Dark focuses on human deviances while stepping away from the traditional blood bath and supernatural stuff. A pretty good game that still creeps players out.

  • Disturbing, violent, gloomy, 2Dark is a nice old-school looking game with an amazing atmosphere. Those who love survival and stealth will find a truly decent challenge.

  • If you enjoy a good horror with a bleak tale – and can stomach seeing pixelated children in cages or mauled by animals – then 2Dark is definitely worth checking out.

  • Dark game in the hostile environment of the Gloomywood town from the creator of the Alone in the Dark game. Although it does not achieve the prize for technical style, its playability and sophistication will easily conquer you.

  • The creator of Alone in the Dark, Frederick Raynal, crafts an interesting mixture of stealth and horror. Despite an unreliable IA and some frustrating gameplay elements, 2Dark is a well-made twisted noir which take the player in the depth of a rotten and dark town: the infamous Gloomywood.

  • Alone in the Dark's creator is back with a nice old-school looking game with an amazing atmosphere.

  • 2Dark is a compelling horror game that tackles some truly horrific subject matter. But cheap deaths and uneven level design hold it back from being truly great.

  • 2Dark is a game that clearly knows how to build an atmosphere, but seems a bit confused when it comes to using it to actually frame an engaging, compelling game. The whole experience seems to be caught in a sort of limbo between being a stealth, top-down action, or point-and-click experience, and fails to do be any of them exceedingly well. A bit of re-focus to clean up the gameplay and narrative a little would go a long way, though it will be perfect for that niche market looking for a Taken-inspired plot of cartoonish gory stealth adventure.

  • 2Dark’s call back to old 90s horror games is nostalgic, though it comes with all the issues of the games from that era. There are certain expectations from modern games for mechanics and controls to feel intuitive and goals to be well communicated. The interface quickly becomes unmanageable as the inventory balloons and invades the main game space. Having full access to your inventory and combining weapons on the go sounds like a clever concept. That is until you’re in the throes of gameplay and the thing you need is indistinguishable from the junk you have collected. The overall game experience suffers due to this, but if you’re fond of 90s horror games like Alone in the Dark and the original Resident Evil, then you’re likely in for a treat with 2Dark.

  • No amount of noir stylings and serial killers can save this clunky game. Too bad — the idea itself was good.

  • Level design is cramped and unfair, the controls are imprecise, the interface is from a completely different genre of game and is extremely cluttered and unhelpful, and the whole thing is just painful. 2Dark is extremely frustrating, extremely badly designed, and extremely not fun. I’m glad it wiped my saves. Avoid.
