    locomania233's Amnesia: The Dark Descent (PC)

    [October 1, 2012 08:17:24 PM]
    Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a horror puzzle game in which you take on the guise of Daniel who has lost his memory. I was surprised that it was an indie game because it was one of the most terrifying games I have ever played. The majority of the game is normal exploration of the surroundings, mostly walking around and fiddling with things. However it makes the scary parts that much scarier when they happen. The majority of the scary parts are the encounters with the gatherers, the monsters that roam the mansion. I really enjoyed how there were no weapons to fight the monsters. I found that it made the monsters much more terrifying and increased the suspense of the action you took to escape, whether running or hiding. The puzzle elements fairly normal as far as puzzle games go, but the catch is that you have to do them under the fear of monsters and the dark. The darkness is also a mechanic in the game, too much darkness and Daniel starts to lose sanity, making the screen blurry and adding horrific sound effects. The player starts to use and conserve oil and tinder carefully, as they are the tools to help combat the darkness. Overall, I believe Amnesia to be an amazing horror puzzle game that, despite its indie persuasion, succeeded where other recent horror games have drawn short.
