    Today we can proudly announce that Amnesia: The Dark Descent has gone gold! So what does this mean? Well, it essentially mean that the game is done! What is left for us now to do is to send it away to our Russian publisher and online retailers. We will also start to focus 100% on doing PR and make sure people know about the game. In less then two weeks it will be released to the world!

    It has really been a long journey and Amnesia has been the focal point of our existence for quite some time. With all that work behind us it now feels very nice to be done and we are extremely pleased with end result. I actually enjoyed testing the game until the very end, something I cannot say about Penumbra. I feel we have bettered ourselves on all accounts with Amnesia and are very excited to hear what all of you think about it once it's released.

    Thanks to all who have supported us so far! And please continue helping us spreading the word.

    Below follows a brand new gameplay trailer about water, doors and being hunted. And if you are interested in seeing new environments from the game check here and here.

    I absolutely agree, I pre-ordered it virtually as soon as it was possible to do so, back when they were doing the pre-order count and promised to include bonus material in the game if it reached 2000 pre-orders, and they most certainly did. It was also 20% off during that span of time, it would have been literally illogical not to pre-order it.

    I believe that it was nothing but a bunch of physics puzzles and a hastily put together storyline to explain them.

    They know how to hit other nerves as well, such as the immersion nerve, and the adrenaline nerve.

    I'd buy it, but i'd probably take a month to finish the first chapter and then never muster the courage to play it again.

    Oh god yes, I almost screamed that when I saw the trailer, this looks amazing! I'm not gonna watch any more gameplay, screenshots or even read about it. I'm gonna be naive about it and just pick it up, and let me be surprised!

    That sounds awesome! I would love toying with the physics and the way you grab stuff in that game.
    I wanted a level editor for Black Plague so bad :frown:

    Spiders stopped me from playing Penumbra: Overture.

    I hope they won't be in Amnesia.

    Being chased is something that other developers seem to not have gotton down as scary.

    Which Penumbra game would you consider the best of the three?

    I've only played Overture and Black Plague and I think the latter is better.

    These people are some of the few to recognize that any truly fantastic horror game shouldn't give the player weapons, because then it takes all the horror out of monsters. (Of course, games like Nightmare House 2 prove that environmental scares can be even more freaky than monsters.)

    This game is going to leave me sleepless for nights. I probably won't be able to afford it when it first comes out, but I'm planning on picking it up for a Halloween scare.

    Definitely Black Plague. Overture is still very good, though, so still worth playing. Requiem is just... weird. It's not really a Penumbra game even.

    Overture, Black Plague was a step in the right direction, most certainly, ruined by including Clarence.

    Also, lol, Requiem.

    Man, I don't know. It must be my monitor. Even with headphones on I found the trailer really, really lame.

    I love how it's got the whole "run or die" complex but jeez, it just felt so lame and unrewarding.
