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 little help albeit late, if means your graphics card doesn't support shader 3.0 which is needed to play many newer games including Amnesia.

Download Desura on your other pc and log in then download it? I mean it seems pretty easy but that's because I'm techy.

i have updated my drivers many times and i was told to do that when this happens.
i bought the demo for amnesia and tried to run it and at first i didnt change the settings for graphics etc.
but when the game came up, and normally it would show a dark hallway and a torch and the title plus profile select. but when it came up that wasnt there so i proceeded to playing the game and still nothing, the crosshair was there and i could pull up my journal and all that perfectly fine but the screen was black and i coudnt see anything and i know its not normal since in amnesia when you're in the dark long enough you can see a bit. so i proceeded to turning down my graphics settings for the game all the way down and the same thing happened pleaaaaaaaase help i really want to play this game.

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.
