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?

Meh, finally bought this game, now it segfaults on Kubuntu 12.04...

cw@x220i: ~/desura/common/amnesia-the-dark-descent$ ./desura_launch_Play\

./desura_launch_Play Zeile 21: 13384 Speicherzugriffsfehler (Speicherabzug geschrieben) LD_LIBRARY_PATH= $LD_LIBRARY_PATH: $LIB_PATH $BIN_PATH $ARGS $@

Linux Gaming is really disappointing atm. Too much fail.

A catchy, creepy game with original/extraordinary gameplay. Maybe it is the best game for GNU/linux client.

I actually wanted to buy The Humble Indie Bundle V but I was too late Y.Y Amnesia is not going to be in the Humble Indie Bundle again, right?

the next time it's on sale at steam I will definitely buy it! The demo was awesome!

When I watch PewDiePie's playing Amnesia, it didn't look so scary. But when I play it myself with fullscreen and max volume on a headphone... Goodbye, sleep.

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.
