Frederick Raynal wins a decade long legal battle against atari
By Darkflame at 2016-09-27 20:07
Frederick Raynal - creator of Alone in the Dark, as well as certain other classic games, has won a decade long legal battle against Atari (formally Infogrames)

The court ruled that the game, as well as the early 3d technologies used to make it, could not be treated as a single enity, and therefor the rights should be divided between the various party's involved.
Raynal was declared the author of some of the key pieces of 3d software (3D Desk and Scene Edit), as well as retaining some rights over the gameplay.
They are currently evaluating how much financial compensation Raynal is owed.
It is unknown at this point if anything is going to the rest of the team who worked on AitD.

MBN moving hosts Tuesday, 9th of Februari
By elmuerte at 2016-02-08 21:56
Tomorrow I will move the MBN to a new host, which means that it will be down for a while.

The move is going to start around 18:00 CET. After moving the latest files and restoring the database backup I will chance the DNS which can take up to an hour to propagate.
It should be a fairly simple task, so I do not think it will take a very long time.

Edit: Move complete. If you encounter any problems, please report them in this thread.

LBA 1 and 2 on sale at Steam!
By Darkflame at 2015-10-21 13:19
LBA 1 (enhanced tablet version) and LBA2 (DosBoxed version) are now for sale on Steam!

LBA1 - Enhanced Edition is up for 5,99€ / 5.99USD
LBA2 - for 3,99€/3.99USD

Or both in a bundle for 7,99€/7.99USD

The description for the Enhanced LBA1 edition is as follows;

It should be noted that it can be controlled either a controller or mouse but not the traditional keyboard controls. Players wishing for the original control's can still buy the normal version on GoG.com however.
Even if you have a few copies of these classics already, all LBA fans should check out the Steam page and review/upvote for the games. Steam is a massive platform and getting LBA in front of more eyeballs can do nothing but help the chance for a 3rd game to get funded.


DotEmu has just posted that people buying the Enhanced Edition now get the old version free too.

Donate for 2Dark - http://www.ulule.com/2dark/

2Dark, to-be-released October/November 2015.

It looks like a lot of (not-child-murdering) fun! It's a score-based survival horror when a unique voxel-based look and some sick murderers. Oh and the main character, Smith, look a little like Fred himself, which is amusing.

http://www.ulule.com/2dark/ Perhaps we should throw tons of money at it so it gets made?
