It Ain't Penumbra till the fat lady sings.


The actual development of Penumbra is proving just as shocking as the horror-games themselves. We thought the series was over, with the planned two parts being crammed into the final Black Plague. Except it's not true - a final downloadable expansion pack will be available from Paradox namechecked-a-bit-too-much-in-the-last-week's Gamersgate. It's called Penumbra: Requiem and it'll be out in around June and - bar that - we know little. The press release mentions "This time telling what is real and what is not will be even harder and not always trusting your senses will be essential in order to survive," which is going to be my excuse when the police find Jim's brutalised body in the Kitchen. The defence via Cartesian Doubt in Existence always goes down well in my experience.
