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?

A CD-key!? It seems even the Desura version of Amnesia has DRM. A pity.

Oh, boo-hoo. Keys can be written down and put in a dropbox folder and you can still backup the game.

I made a legitimate complaint. You mock me for it. You provide a ridiculous solution (As far as the key goes, simply including a text file with the key alongside the game data will suffice, and one can check their key over the internet by logging in through Desura, so why does Dropbox even need to be involved?). Was that really necessary, and if so, did it negate my point in any way?

By using dropbox he was implying that you should keep a copy there so it is safe just in case AMnisa decides to stop sell on Desura and then Desura runs out of money because this is the only game here that seems to sell and them Desura shuts down and your account gets explodie. [:

This is the scariest game i have played. Low graphics or little bugs etc... I don't care. 5 people vs 500 people. It's not fair to judge them with ea's, konami's games etc... This is an indie game but still more scary then silent hill series. (I'm serious, silent hill's rediculous)
This is the only game that scares 35 years old man. (not me I'm 15 LoL and I don't know why I can sleep easily after played this game :)) We wait for other amnesia games frictional games! We love your games! Have a nice day everybody thanks for reading.

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.
