Open world games are forms of video games where a player or a group of players can explore a virtual world without running into invisible walls like in linear games. These open world games have boundaries but are often displayed as unsurpassable forms of land or water.
Did you know that Resident Evil, the 1996 game that streamlined the survival horror genre, was heavily influenced by the themes and gameplay of the 1992 PC game, Alone in the Dark? In 1992, French gaming company Infogrames released Alone in the Dark, an action horror game for MS-DOS. The game was set in the 1920s and the character is in a mansion in Louisiana, and the player must guide the character out of the dark and haunted mansion by slaying ghosts and monsters. Players can choose between Edward Carnby or Emily Hartwood as their character, who wakes up in the attic of the mansion and must find the way out, all the while battling slave zombies and giant bipedal rat monsters. Players can look for weapons to help in battle, but some monsters can be defeated with fists. The game was met with positive reception, with gaming magazine AllGame giving it 3.5 stars out of 5, while EGM scored it 8/10. Famitsu gave it 33/40 in their review and Next Generation rated it with 4 stars out of 5. It won three awards in the 1993 European Computer Trade SHow: Best Graphics, Most Original Game, and BEst French Game of the Year.
