All Alone in the Dark Lagniappes and locations

Completing Lagniappe sets can unlock secrets and even items, so here’s every one of the Alone in the Dark collectibles and its location.

Where are all the Alone in the Dark Lagniappes? Alone in the Dark is set partly in 1920s New Orleans, and is faithful not only to its period, but also its location. “Lagniappe” is a New Orleans term for a free bonus or gift, and is used in-game for sets of collectible items. Not content with simple, useless collectibles for completionists, though, Alone in the Dark Lagniappe sets, when completed, can change the game, so there’s even more reason to find them all.

As you explore both the worlds of Alone in the Dark, you might want to check each and every corner and cranny for these interesting collectible items. Some are obvious, and some are even given to you automatically, but this is a puzzle game, so it’s not always that easy. You can’t always go back if you’re missing one, so keep your eyes – and this list – open to make sure you pick up all the Alone in the Dark Lagniappes.
