Amigdala, the Penumbra: Overture Unreal Engine Clone (Must see!)

This is a great clone of the first Penumbra game. Is shares a lot of similarities with the original, including gameplay, story setting and location, etc. It is also set in Greenland, and the envirnoments and textures are very similar to Penumbra!

Quote:Gherman Driven, a middle-aged man, fanatical conspiracy theorist, who has abandoned all joy of his life.
Family, friends, work. Gherman remained without anything because of his obsession with the "Philadelphia experiment", which led him to neglect every other aspect of his life.
11 years after the events of the alleged experiment, Gherman found a document that marked the coordinates of the military establishment in which all involved in the project were taken.
After spending all the savings of a lifetime for trip to Greenland, certainly he did not expect to find so much...

A story-driven horror where the goal is to find out what lies behind the experiment.
All that you have is a flashlight, a lighter, and your intelligence to solve various environmental puzzles, escape from unpleasant situations and hide from what you find.

This game was developed to be played perfectly in virtual reality.
Each menu, object, or text, will be implemented in the game to allow who will use the Head Mounted Display to have a realistic effect.
All you have to do to activate this mode, it's open the game menu and activate "VRMode" in the "Graphic Settings".
I'll hope you enjoy it.

This is what a Penumbra HD remake would look like Big Grin

It looks very nice, but but I am wondering if this game could have some Frictional Games copyright infringements...

Oooh dear lord no please no, every single asset in that trailer is either downloaded for free from the unreal engine content examples or just bought from the market place.

I can't count how many games I've seen that zombie model in.

Unintelligible voice acting, a HUD that makes your eyes hurt and gameplay that looks like it was scrambled together from various free tutorials, yup, this is an asset flip at its finest.

Seems it's his first game. Cool, I like new devs! Here's one important thing though, don't sell your first game.

It isn't going to be good and this is a perfect example of that, it's a pretty crap game that disguises itself under pretty pre-made unreal graphics, he should keep making games and improve himself as a developer before selling his work.
