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 have to admit, Amnesia was a rather challenging experience for me at the start. When I got closer to defeating Alexander / to the end of the game, I was showing alot of Courage and the Monsters hardly scared me after that. I just hid, I was quiet and laughed in rl. This is how I reacted throughout my experience.

I have something to add to my review: When I was playing, you know how your player can turn all the way around, well at one point, he could only turn his head 90 degrees to the left or right. Bug?

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.
