Experience the horror of losing your memory and being trapped in an old castle
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a first person PC game in which you play the role of Daniel, who wakes up in a strange castle and can’t remember the reason which took him there.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is incredibly scary and realistic . The 3D graphics enhance the sense of realism and virtually transport you to the disturbing atmosphere. However, the sound effects make the game especially terrifying when Daniel sobs and shouts.
In order to control his emotional state, the game integrates a tool where you can see how Daniel feels at any moment. His sanity gets worse due to disturbing situations, such as spending a long time in the darkness or taking part of traumatic scenes. If his sanity decreases, he will become in an easy prey for the enemy.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a horror video game in which the main character will have to survive and escape from different monsters. Daniel doesn’t have any weapon, so just his ingenuity and ability to hide from these creatures can save him.

While playing, the game also offers a great sense of control, as you can interact with the different objects you encounter and use them in your own benefit. For instance, the player can open and close doors as well as fix old machinery.
As we already said, Daniel is not able to remember anything of his past, so he will to explore the castle and discover the different pathways which will help him to regain his memory.
