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?

Doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bad game either. Frictional Games is a INDIE developer, they have their limits in resources and manpower. If you want to play a AAA Horror game go play silent hill or something and stop trolling this nicely done game.

Actually I think that even Silent Hill is nothing compared to Amnesia.

And yes i have played the full game for free.
Its scary but that doesnt mean its a good game just becose its scary.
Besides like XxRoCkBaNdMaNxX said frictional team as 20-30 persons that doesnt justify the price, it should be around like 6.00$ or 7.00$.

True but still this game is boring to play.
Besides look at the price!
I dont even want to play it for free.
Its repetitive.
Also the trailer makes it even look even worst

True, it may not be the scariest, but Frictional Games is an indie game maker. They don't have a team of over 1000 people like EA or who ever the hell makes horror games these days. Frictional has a team of like, 20-30 people, less if I'm not mistaken.

Also, when you play Amnesia, you have to play in the dark, alone, brightness of the game turned down to at least 0.8 or 1.0, and playing it at 2AM while your tired really adds to the immersion and scariness.

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.
