Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Developer Release Year Platforms
Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Linux

As I wake up my head aches and my throat burns. Where am I? How did I get here? Blurry memories of pain and suffering fade in and out as I try to identify my surroundings. There is a vague familiarity to the place but I don't know why. Suddenly, a strong emotion rushes through me and a single memory emerges. Something is hunting me and it is very close. My body fills with a terrifying cold and my mind is wiped empty of all but one thought: I must escape.
