“Amnesia: The Dark Descent” is Terrifyingly Good

Amnesia: The Dark Descent
I’m a lifelong fan of horror, and have a particular fondness of the eldrich things-man-was-not-meant-to-know variety. I’ve been fortunate enough to have voiced several very successful games in this vein including Evil Dead: Hail to the King, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, and Clive Barker’s Undying. And now, I’m excited to announce another chilling addition to my credits: Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror game from Frictional games.

Amnesia isn’t one of those games where you’re shooting tons of monsters, picking up weapons with grenades and the like. Instead, it’s old-fashioned (and period) scary fun, where you’re in a story and have to uncover what’s happening and make it to the end alive and with whatever is left of your sanity.

“Amnesia could be the scariest survival horror game in quite a while.”

There are only a handful of characters in the game, and fewer still have many lines. My part is short but quite memorable. I certainly won’t give away any spoilers…let’s just say I’m credited as “Innocent Man”. Many character roles may not sound like much*, but I guarantee you’ll remember mine when you play it.

The game is now up and running on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (yay, support for Mac and Linux!).

The teaser trailer below featuring some gameplay will give you a good idea of the terror that awaits you…and just in time to get you revved-up for Halloween. Have a ghoulishly good time! {insert maniacal laughter here}
