Amnesia: The Dark Descent updated to 1.0.1

Today we have released a patch for Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The main reason for the update is to make sure the Radeon X1000 Series of cards work as intended. We have also included a whole bunch of other fixes and changes, check our support page for me specific information.

While at it the tools for making custom stories has also been updated to make use of the changes. So far the tools have spurred interest beyond what we anticipated, if interested to see what's cooking check the forum.

Amnesia: TDD - Tools released and two new videos.

Today we have released the tools for Amnesia: The Dark Descent. These are the tools that we used to create the game, anyone interested in game development should take a look.

Using the tools you can create your own "Custom Stories", which can then be shared with other users and be played by using the main menu entry with the same name. You can even create a "Total Conversion" if so wanted, but this would require quite a bit more work and is perhaps not our main intention with the tools.

So check out http://hpl2.frictionalgames.com for information and download. Currently the tools are available for Windows, with Linux and Mac releases coming as soon as possible.

We have provided some basic information on the HPL2 site, but as it is a Wiki, anyone can dig in and help expanding the information, tutorials and so forth. You can also check the Custom Story Forum section for discussions and downloading of any future user creations.

To end it all, we have two new videos to share. One developer walkthrough of the story design in Amnesia and the horrific Russian launch trailer for Amnesia. Enjoy!

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

Sewer trailer and two new screens

Today we are revealing the last gameplay trailer before the release on the 8th of September. Enjoy the dark, damp sewers of Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

We also have two new screens, giving a clue to the much darker and sinister parts of the game, parts of the game that for sure are not part of the recently released demo.

Remember that you can pre-order the game, to save a buck or two on the release price of 20 USD.
