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?

It makes me sad that game authors are treating Desura users as second-class citizens. I wouldn't expect this from Linux games, since Desura is the ONLY SANE WAY to install Linux games for the time being.

But Halloween is over, maybe better luck next year.

What makes you say that? Is there something wrong with your distribution's package manager?

intgr Nov 9 2011, 1:00pm replied:

My distribution's package manager works great, but it doesn't have any of the games I've bought on Desura. Linux distros have a policy of shipping open source stuff only.

Some Linux games include third-party .rpm or .deb packages, but they're only limited to a few distros, the packaging quality is often sub-par and they break when distros decide to move to newer library versions.

I too bought it from the Frictional shop (pre-order) and wish I could redeem it on Desura. Pity the Halloween sale didn't make it here or I would have bought a second copy just to get it on here.

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.
