Atari(R) Sheds Light on Upcoming Alone in the Dark: Illumination(TM) and Haunted House: Cryptic Graves(TM) Coming to PC in Fall 2014

At PAX Prime, Atari Unveils Spine-Tingling Details on Re-Imagined Survival Horror Games

NEW YORK, NY and SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/31/14 -- PAX Prime -- Atari®, one of the world's most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, today announced details for the upcoming release of re-imagined classic survival horror-genre titles, Alone in the Dark: Illumination™ and Haunted House: Cryptic Graves™. Available in Fall 2014, the games will feature a mix of new twists, storylines and gameplay to give players a frightening new experience. Fans and gaming enthusiasts can get a sneak peek at the upcoming PC releases by watching the teaser trailers for both Alone in the Dark: Illumination and Haunted House: Cryptic Graves.

"Atari was at the forefront of the survival horror game genre, with both Haunted House and Alone in the Dark shaping the category throughout the '80s and '90s," said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. "The modern and updated versions of these games will resonate with enthusiasts of the classics worldwide, and engage new fans through suspenseful, action-packed PC gameplay."

Largely recognized as the "Father of the Survival Horror Genre," the original 1992 Alone in the Dark title became an instant classic as it forged its way as a leader in the 3D PC games category. The new PC edition, Alone in the Dark: Illumination, takes the survival horror genre to the next level with new features, including the power of illumination and a cooperative multiplayer mode. To survive, players must fight through challenging missions and dynamic environments filled with blood-thirsty beasts in order to rid an abandoned town of its mysterious curse of Darkness, and free fellow playable hero characters including the Hunter, Witch, Engineer and Priest -- each armed with a unique set of special abilities and weapons.

The upcoming PC version of Haunted House: Cryptic Graves is a terrifying, first-person single-player adventure-horror game filled with cryptic puzzles, supernatural entities and paranormal activity. Gifted with psychic abilities, players must use their unique powers to purge the spirits and monsters that infest the Abbadon Grange estate. For example, players can communicate with the dead to decipher puzzles and avoid deadly traps, and use additional powers to craft objects that eradicate gruesome ghosts. The original 1982 Haunted House title is also recognized as one of the earliest pioneers in the horror-adventure genre.

Pure FPS, a new game development studio is developing Alone in the Dark: Illumination for PC. Haunted House: Cryptic Graves for PC is being developed by Dreampainters, the seasoned team behind the critically acclaimed survival horror game, Anna.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
