  • The Nightmare of Insatiable Knowledge: Inside a giant vertical bookcase, you will have to feed insatiable creatures by climbing through this bookcase in search of the most... delicious books. But be careful, there are other hungry creatures.
  • The Nightmare of Beauty: A sick and distorted nightmare, where the representation of perfect beauty through mannequins merges with what the media canons impose on us... evolving into a macabre attempt to find beauty... but what is the beauty? You will have to find out within the walls of crumbling laboratories.

Once you have completed your task you will be able to have an audience with the Great Monolith... some say it can make your nightmares come true.

Amygdala was not born with the idea of innovating the gaming industry or being the best horror game ever made, but was born simply to give context and show some creatures created by me connected with the basic idea of expressing different emotions.

I hope these creatures can accompany you in your deepest nightmares.
