2010-09 Wednesday 8th, Survival horror "Amnesia: The Dark Descent" is Released!

Helsingborg, Sweden, 8/9 – 2010

amnesia4We at Frictional Games are happy to announce that Amnesia: The Dark Descent is now available for instant download! This represent the culmination of the three years of hard work and we are very proud of the final result. We believe it to be a huge improvement over our previous work, the Penumbra series.

One of our goals with Amnesia: The Dark Descent has been "availability", meaning that the game should be as available as possible for those that are interested in playing it. Because of this, the game is having a simultaneous launch on Windows, Mac and Linux. It also comes with four translations in addition to the original English version, is DRM free and available from most major online retailers in addition to our own online store. Finally, the game itself has also received our
utmost attention in areas that affect the ease of use and interaction with the game world.

amnesia4Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a first person horror game with a focus on immersion. It is a game where atmosphere and story comes first. We hope that the game will be a breeze of fresh air, in a genre otherwise populated by "one-man-army action hero" sagas. In Amnesia you are almost completely defenseless, something we believe not only makes the game a lot scarier, but also gives a vastly different experience.

Enter an interactive nightmare where reality is a fragile concept.

Do you have what it takes to survive?


Selected press quotes
"Few games are able to conjure up an atmosphere this genuinely frightening."
- IGN

"Despite its title, Amnesia remembers what the blockbusters of survival horror seem to have forgotten: how to horrify."
- PC Gamer UK

"I think it is safe to say that Amnesia is the most successfully frightening game to have been made."
- Rock Paper Shotgun

"I must say Amnesia is a masterpiece of horror, something surely all other horror games could take from and in some senses, strive to be."
- NeoSeeker

Lucky!

I can't play it in the day--tried that for the demo and it ruined the atmosphere (yes, even with curtains. The sun is very bright). And with the work schedule I have, I won't be able to really get into it until Friday.

Go hook up your computer in the bathroom with the lights off.
