A teaser consisting only of gameplay taken directly from the game.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent (previously known as Lux Tenebras or Unknown) is a graphic adventure survival horror game by Frictional Games, who previously developed the Penumbra series. Their goal with this game is to create the most frightening and disturbing experience possible.

The game casts the player in the role of Daniel, a young man from London, who awakens in the dark halls of Brennenburg Castle with little to no memory about himself or his past. All he can remember is his name and that something is hunting him.

The game oozes Lovecraftian menace as it strands its protagonist alone in the insanity-inducing darkness of a haunted ruin where spooks lurk around every other corner. Amnesia: The Dark Descent is undoubtedly going to take a place among the most frightening horror games ever made.
