2009-11 Tuesday 3rd, Amnesia entered into the IGF competition

During the weekend we finished a demo build of our upcoming game Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

"Amnesia? What's that?"

Oh, Sorry, "Amnesia: The Dark Descent" is the final name for our project that has previously had the work title Lux Tenebras/Unknown.

The demo sent in to the IGF competition is fully playable and full featured - it has everything that the final game will have, with the exception of some missing voice acting, placeholders and work in progress content. It is not the complete game from start to finish, rather it is the first part of the game with everything in place to give the experience of the final game. So that there is no misunderstanding, the demo is only for the IGF judges.

"Sounds great, when can we see some stuff?"

At the start of the year we decided to fully concentrate on the development of the game and we will continue to do so for the rest of the year. There will be plenty of time next year to show and tell what the game will be about before release! We did however make sure to put up a new site for the game, it has some new content as well, http://www.amnesiagame.com.

I love you.

The game looks positively amazing. At first I thought they were paintings until I noticed you forgot to take out the crosshair.

I can't say the information given is very creative, though. I don't remember anything and must escape... Amnesia is generally a plot hole unless you can do it like STALKER did, which I'm certain you can.

Sounds pretty aptly named, I think. :lol:

Grodz Andrey:
So things are super-clear: the demo build we put together now is for IGF only and nobody outside of the IGF panel of judges will ever play it.
