Today Frictional Games, the makers of the Penumbra series, has released a demo for their upcoming first person survival horror “Amnesia: The Dark Descent”. Players with Windows, Mac or Linux all get a chance to experience a small slice of the dread and terror contained in the full game.

The game begins with Daniel awakening in a desolate Prussian castle, without any memories to explain his situation. A letter written by himself, reveals that the amnesia is actually self-inflicted. The
mysterious message urges him to seek out and kill Alexander, a man residing deep below the castle. Hunted by a dark shadow, Daniel can see no other way out than to trust his former self. If he is to save his life and mind, he needs to find out what it is all really about. It is his only hope for salvation. A dark descent awaits.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a first person horror game with focus on immersion. It is a game where atmosphere and story comes first. Amnesia will be released on the 8th of September and can be purchased in Frictional Game's own online store as well as most major online retailers.


We would also like to seize the opportunity and inform all that there is a 10% discount on Amnesia if you pre-order. For those who are longing for some horror gaming this weekend, the Penumbra series costs 70% less in our own store (store.frictionalgames.com) and at GamersGate!!

This looks excellent, good job. It almost reminds me of a more interactive and more mystery oriented Myst or Riven.

I can’t wait to try this out; I’ve been following it for a while now. Good luck with the game, and thanks for trying something new and different instead of the same repetitive game-play pumped out by other big name game developers and publishers these days.

Awesome, awesome job. What I played in the demo more than lives up to my expectations...meaning...having to play in shorter stints than I did with Penumbra because it is so frightening.

I didn't want to spoil it by playing the demo, so I just bought it instead.

It's pretty good, but I think it should tell you what the controls are or let you configure them.
