Spooky games for Halloween: Day 10
Imagine waking up with no memory. Amnesia is all the more frightening because it's real, and can happen anytime. Fall down and hit your head, amnesia. Eat too many cheesy poofs before bed, amnesia. There's no rhyme or reason to it and no way to predict when it's going to happen to you. Sounds scary, right? Ok, now expand on that a little bit and imagine you wake up in a creepy castle and all you can remember is your name, and that something is chasing you. Oh yeah, and you wake up holding a note from yourself, telling yourself that you must find and kill someone. Not the most pleasant morning ever, right?

This is the basic premise for Amnesia: The Dark Descent. You play as Daniel, a frightened and confused man with no memory walking through a scary castle trying to remember the past. This is a survival/horror game, but not like most in the genre. For example, you cannot fight any of the monsters you encounter. You must rely on your wits and quick thinking to evade and hide from these nightmare creatures. The whole time you are battling your own memories as well. It makes for a tense psychological thriller. Using good 3D graphics and a physics engine that lets you interact with objects to explore and solve puzzles, this game promises to immerse you fully into the dark world it creates. To open a door you must grab it with the mouse and then push or pull to open it. This allows you to pull the door open just a crack to peek through, but it also makes it so that if you are running from a monster you might find yourself pulling on a push door in desperation as God-knows-what is right behind you.

Add to the mix a frightening soundtrack and you will see why Frictional Games won more than 1 award with this release. As you wander around the castle, try to keep hold of your sanity. If you spend too long in the dark, or witness something too freaky, you will lose pieces of your mind, a bit at a time, which will cause visual and auditory hallucinations, which in turn will attract the attention or the yeah. Good luck, you're going to need it. This is on almost every top ten scary game list for a reason...enjoy!
