About This Game

The last remaining memories fade away into darkness. Your mind is a mess and only a feeling of being hunted remains. You must escape.
Awake...
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.
Explore...
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?
Experience...
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.
Survive...
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?

If you're easily scared and only want a game that will scare you, you'll like this game.

If you want clever and interesting storylines/mysteries along with horror, this game is garbage.

Generic storyline, generic "scary" moments, predictable, unoriginal, and terribly cheesy voice acting. There's no clear objective in the game, so it just feels like you're just walking around thinking "hmm, I guess I'll see what's going to try to scare me here" on loop for the entire game.

I'm a huge fan of horror and I'm not easy to scare, so I care more about quality of everything, and there is just nothing positive to say about this game.

Played this game a few years after it came out. It's fantastic. Frictional Games has the best sound design of any game company out there by far- blows the competition out of the water. Terrifying and fascinating game, a must play for any horror game fan.

I am pretty sure that the rest of the game is as great as the first 10 minutes. But I ain´t finding that out.

After have finished playing through the whole game I do not understand all these good reviews.
It had some puzzles and not a single scary thing in the game.
It is a well made game with graphics, music and sounds fitting it well but that it fell short on the rest.
Story was so and so.
For me at least this was a boring experience and nothing I recommend.

♥♥♥♥ my pants in the menu screen.
Proceeded with the instructions and played in complete dark, alone and with headphontes. ♥♥♥♥ my pants again.
Lights on, sound off. Monster poped out. Outcome the same.
Game is good, not that scary. Got used to it after a while. Stupid lightbulb broke, complete dark and steam message recieved. Running out of the pants..

All in all. Story is great.

10/10 would ♥♥♥♥ my pants again.

Too bad I will never play horror game again..

Haunting atmosphere with riveting yet disturbing story which is well worth following. Even someone who doesn't like the horror genre (like me) can really "enjoy" this game.

1. Purchases game.
2. Feeling confident and fearless after watching so many Let's Plays. I got this...
3. Plays game for 2 hours; getting lost in the fantastic story, solving puzzles, evading monsters and fully absorbing the creepy, immersive atmosphere. Pshhh, nothing to it...
5. Falls into water area. Oh s***
6. A Wild Water Monster Appears!
7. Boards the express train to Nope.
8. Closes game, turns on all the lights and sits with back to a corner.

10/10 Totally worth the free panic attack. Will play again...eventually...maybe...
