Here’s a preview of my review for Amnesia: The Dark Descent:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent revolutionized the first person survival horror genre, especially the kind that has no combat. Games like Outlast and Slender: The 8 Pages may never have been what they are today if not for Amnesia’s influence.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in the shoes of Daniel, a man trapped in a Gothic castle, known as Brennenburg, with a severe case of amnesia in late August, 1839. Daniel doesn’t remember what he’s doing there or why, but but he does know that he’s being hunted by something. A journal entry, written by his pre-amnesiac self, offers one main goal: Descend into the Inner Sanctum of the castle and kill the Count of Brennenburg, Alexander.
