I wrote a (long) post-mortem of this project : here
This is a small "demake" of Alone in the Dark. You can explore and find your way out of the top two floor of the mansion. I tried to keep it close to the original, but there is no fight (if you see an enemy you will die) and the interaction system is simpler. The 3D meshes of the characters are ripped from the original game.

I used a plugin I made to export meshes from Blender with color per triangle and I modified a mesh stripping sample from coder corner to load, strip and convert meshes to character strings. You can find my version (to use with Visual 6) here.
