Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Post  .. on Sun Dec 12, 2010 12:24 pm

Oh boy, I just got this game off steam today.
This is an Indie game but it is pretty awesome.

Basically this is a horror game with exploration and puzzles. So you get no weapons, you have to hide to survive. You interact with your environments, opening doors, drawers, cabinets, chests, etc.

This game tries several things to scare you, but only a couple work on me. Not in the sense that I am freaked out, but a small moment of "....oh shit" happens from time to time.

Throughout the game you pick up diary pages so you get a sense of what the character was doing before the game, and possibly how this all came to be.

I have been playing an hour so far, I don't know how long the game is, but I am enjoying it. It is on sale on steam, its just 10 bucks.

Oh man, I've recently been watching a lot of Let's Play of this game. It looks like a really good game and incredibly creepy. Hilarious as it is to watch people wet themselves in terror, I think I might be too big a wuss to beat it myself Razz

Case in point: this guy. Never go into the cellar, seriously...



2:15 onwards Laughing Laughing

I was super paranoid when I went into the storage area.

Gosh I hate that area.

What I like is being able to control how wide open a door is. So you can open it ever so slightly to peek into rooms. That is just something I really like about this game.

Bumping this since I'm going to download it and play later.

I'd play it right now, but it's daylight, and somehow that seems inappropriate.

Be back with impressions in a while.

Just finished installing it, and I think It's worth noting that about half of the items in the installation included the words "Corpse" and "Body".

I'm in for a treat

Gah! I can't play this game!

Anytime I walk into a new hallway or room there's a gust of wind, the castle shudders, and I imagine there's some Lovecraftian horror sitting on my shoulders. Movies I can take, but this?

...I'll go watch Green Hornet and have dinner, then come back and give this another shot. (I haven't even SEEN anything yet, just noises and bugs. Crying or Very sad )

I wouldn't be surprised if that was most of America.

Besides, when you get in the morgue every body their has a penis. Thats before the Inner Sanctum, mind you.

look. I've been watching a lets play of resident fucking evil and been freaked out. Had the crap scared out of me by watching someone play silent hill. To PLAY this, you would see me leaving my house in a casket from a heart attack.

Well I think I got the Audio and Video stuff setup sooo... for anyone that cares, when we get more peeps or when those who said would be there are there then we will start.

Also every 15 minutes there is an ad. Gay Livestream.

Also, in the game there are Notes left by Daniel for himself, should I let Daniel narrate the notes or just never look at them?

I really want to try playing this sometime, let alone watching. I'll look into downloading it soon, let's hope my computer can support it.

I bought this during the steam sale, but haven't started. Likely wont be able to play til at least next quarter, if not I'll just save it for summer. I decided to take more units this quarter and wont be playing much for now. :/

Yeah, I've been the same way. Since the holidays my progress into SMG2 has been put on hold thanks to increased schoolwork among other things. If I were to get this game I probably wouldn't play it for a while.
