The last remaining memories fade away into darkness. Your mind is a mess and only a feeling of being hunted remains. You must escape.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror. A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core. You stumble through the narrow corridors as the distant cry is heard. It is getting closer.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent 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, 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. A sound of dragging feet? Or is your mind playing tricks on you?


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. Something emerges out of the darkness. It's approaching. Fast.


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. Do you have what it takes to survive?

I don't know where to go with my idea but what would you guys think about an Amnesia: TDD port on Android? I mean it's a dream to play this awesome horror game in my bed before going to sleep... =P

so what about a ATDD Mobile? They even got Half-Life Xash3d on android.. HL2 is already on android and with a simple trick you could play HL2 on any android device! On the Motorola Moto G 2 I got 30fps-60fps on it for example.
So a 200€ device could handle Amnesia I guess... god please I would love the person working on such a project!

Well if you love it, then you probably should buy it. If you don't love it, then you search for cracked version by Skidrow on Google

Highest Rated (42 agree) 10/10

If you like dark atmospheres and intense plots full of suspense and psycological terror, such as those found in games like Silent Hill, Diablo 1,or S.T.A.L.K.E.R SoC, then this is the game for you.

Amnesia - the Dark Descent redefines it's genre.

Turns out that @samueljustice, our sound designer, names his sounds weirdly, some examples: Barritone Carp Danger Mollusc Ghoulish Shrimp
