The Swedish developer, Frictional Games, release today its first person survival horror title, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The game puts you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring the eerie pathways, the player must also take part of Daniel’s troubled memories. The horror does not only come from the outside, but from the inside as well. A disturbing odyssey into the dark corners of the human mind begins.
Who is Daniel and what is he doing in this castle? Through letters and newspapers, some answers will slowly appeared and will pave the way for new issues… Amnesia: The Dark Descent throws the player headfirst into a dangerous world where danger can lurk behind every corner. The only means of defense are hiding, running or using ones wits.
To create the atmosphere of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Frictional Games used a fully physically simulated world, cutting edge 3D graphics and a dynamic sound system. Once the game starts, the player will be in control from the beginning to the end. There are no cut-scenes or time-jumps, whatever happens will happen to the player first. Amnesia is designed to frighten the player and to “be the scariest survival horror game in quite a long time.” (IGN)
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
