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?

1.3 patch is out!

Hello dear stalkers! I hope you're still doing good despite the Covid-19! 💪

I decided to release this intermediate patch before the next, big content update which will contain the rest/end of the adventure.

You can show your support if you want!
Head over uTip or Patreon!


What's new in this patch?

In short:

  • One new map added; it's unfinished but there is a big portion.
  • Episode (chapter) selection in the main menu: replay your favorite part!
  • New visual effects; during cutscenes or other special events.
  • A lot of fixes/improvements & code optimisation for the older maps. New stuff when needed.
  • Updated & added text entries.
  • Still no masseur to help you relaxing while you play. Nope. You're on your own until the end.

Download the 1.3 patch now; you need the have the 1.2 build already installed:

Download Forbidden Trip - Early Access (patch 1.3 - 20200614) - Mod DB

Read the instructions in the patch description if needed! Archive password is in there as well. ✅


Resuming progression

Just check Episodes in the main menu then select the special Early Access 1.3 episode to resume where 1.2 ended! See following picture:

Episode selection

The next big content update will be the final! But when?

In my area, the Covid-19 has calmed down so I went 100% back to my IRL job since the beginning of June. 2020 is a lost year for me (like a lot of people around the world) because I had planned to move abroad for new projects/job during summer… it's all cancelled of course… for now.

In the other hand, there was a very good side-effect with that pandemic: it gave me plenty of time to work on Forbidden Trip during the last months. I'm really happy with that and also proud of what has been done since the Early Access release, last Xmas 2019.

Since the 1.2 update from early May, very good progress was made! There is still work to do and with my job resuming, things will be slower. 🙃 I'm just being transparent with you, don't worry though.
Remember! The project only needs one last content update to be completed! So close!! 🤩


Since it was possible, I decided I could release a little something to thank you all for your support and patience while the rest arrives. This is this 1.3 patch.

With the next big content update, expect the last levels, the last answers to your questions. It will be the conclusion of this arc. If needed, I will publish another intermediate patch before that but I don't think it will be necessary at all. 👍

What is left to do, well, mainly scripting, design only needs adjustments here and there. Corrections, upgrades are being added as well in the previous levels, as usual. I should be able to bring voices as well.

Your feedback has been very important and listened; again, thanks a lot for your comments, videos, bug reports… thank you so much! 🤟

An example of new cinematic VFXAn example of new, cinematic VFX, directly inspired by Penumbra games!

I hope you will enjoy this 1.3 patch while I'm cooking the last part. It will include more cool things… some fun, original puzzles (believe me on the original part!! 😆), new areas, other new items… I can't wait to release that.

Until we next meet, take care everyone, be brave! 👌😷

Probably, one of the best games ever. Good history, not cheap scares and really detailed enviorment that continues scaring me these days.

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.
