Amnesia: The Dark Descent is the new survival horror game by Frictional Games, the team behind the Penumbra series.
The Dark Descent puts the player in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring the eerie pathways, you 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 awaits.
By using a fully physically simulated world, cutting edge 3D graphics and a dynamic sound system, the game pulls no punches when trying to immerse you. Once the game starts, you will be in control from the beginning to the end. There are no cut-scenes or time-jumps, whatever happens will happen to you first hand. Amnesia: The Dark Descent throws you headfirst into a dangerous world where danger can lurk behind every corner. Your only means of defense are hiding, running or using your wits.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent will be released in just some hours, September 8th in the US, on Steam and other digital plataforms for U$19.99 . There’s a Pre-Purchase offer too, where you can get the game for 20% off ($15.99).
