The last remaining memories fade away into darkness. Your mind is a mess and only a feeling of being hunted remains. You must escape.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror. A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core. You stumble through the narrow corridors as the distant cry is heard. It is getting closer.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring the eerie pathways, you must also take part of Daniel's troubled memories. The horror does not only come from the outside, but from the inside as well. A disturbing odyssey into the dark corners of the human mind awaits. A sound of dragging feet? Or is your mind playing tricks on you?


By using a fully physically simulated world, cutting edge 3D graphics and a dynamic sound system, the game pulls no punches when trying to immerse you. Once the game starts, you will be in control from the beginning to the end. There are no cut-scenes or time-jumps, whatever happens will happen to you first hand. Something emerges out of the darkness. It's approaching. Fast.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent throws you headfirst into a dangerous world where danger can lurk behind every corner. Your only means of defense are hiding, running or using your wits. Do you have what it takes to survive?

Darkfire alpha

Hello everyone!

I've been extremely busy in my personal life recently, but I managed to get in a few hours of development here and there. I decided to make some changes which will improve the whole mod; specifically, I noticed how dead Amnesia's world always is - nothing ever moves (unless a player interacts with it), which might seem like a benefitting factor for scaring the player, but I actually consider slightly animated environments to be more scary.

Hence, I edited some of the plant assets to be dynamic. See the results here:

While the results aren't anything spectacular, I think it is a breath of fresh air (pun inteded) in usually dead Amnesia environments. Perhaps I will be able to add more little animations like this one to other environments, but we shall see!

That's it from me today. I'm extremely excited for what is to come, and I hope that you are too!

PS. The mod is still a long way down the line, so you can go and play my previous Custom Story in the meantime:

I think Amnesia holds a special place in everyone in the horror gaming community's hearts, and the fact that its so 'easy' to mod for keeps its legacy going on longer and longer! Glad I played this, and I am enjoying working on my custom story "Order of the Skull"

If you like dark atmospheres and intense plots full of suspense and psycological terror, such as those found in games like Silent Hill, Diablo 1,or S.T.A.L.K.E.R SoC, then this is the game for you.
