Amnesia: Rebirth’s launch was a bit cursed oOooOoo

In my expert opinion, the best thing a horror game about amnesia and half-glimpsed horrors can do upon launching is disappear. Was it ever there? Am I crazy in the coconut?

Feature: Still afraid of the dark

Amnesia: Rebirth review

A while back I was saying that so many horror games these days are about either babies or Catholicism (and obviously there is some crossover there), and Alice0 pointed out that actually they were mostly about a Protestant's idea of Catholicism. This was obviously very correct - as are most things Alice0 says - and we had a short discussion about this and about how…

In an alternate universe, Amnesia: The Dark Descent included Jesus and trampolines

In all of horror, the true terror often lies in threats of things that might have been more than what really is. A jump scare that's just a gust of wind or a monster that's actually a hallucination, you know the kind. Here's a truly frightening prospect then: a version of Amnesia: The Dark Descent with some very different details. Frictional Games celebrated the game's…

It morphed once already, and has morphed again, beginning…

Feature: Thanks for the memories

Nine years on, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is still scary as all hell

I return to Amnesia: The Dark Descent with one question alone: will it still scare me?Amnesia scared the bejesus out of me in 2010 when it first came out.
