Gameplay previewed in teaser video
Frictional Games, the developer behind Penumbra, has released a teaser video previewing the upcoming game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The first-person horror game centers around survival and enduring a nightmare. Players take the role of Daniel as he awakens in a desolate castle, suffering from amnesia and experiencing terrible memories. Daniel must explore the castle and stay alive by hiding, running, or using his ingenuity.
Players remain in control of the game from start to finish, without interruptions by cut scenes or time jumps. The castle features a wide range of environments, along with details such as fish and other animals.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent will work on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. Frictional is currently offering pre-orders for $16, with the price rising to $20 when the game is released sometime around August.
