Halloween Is Coming – So Too Is The Amnesia Video Game Collection

Halloween Is Coming-Time To Bust Out The Survival Horror Games

So I don’t know about all of you, but I love Halloween. Costumes, candy, and haunted houses—the best time of year for people who like all things horror related. Survival horror games can bring about that same feeling. The Amnesia video game is probably one of the scariest series out there. Especially, the first game Amnesia Dark Descent.

The series from Frictional Games originally released on Windows, Mac, and Linux (you can get it for PC here on eBay or on Amazon) in 2010. On November 22, 2016, all three games in the series will be available on PS4 as the Amnesia collection.

Amnesia Video Game

Frictional Games was a small indie game developer keeping their fingers crossed that they would have a chance to keep making video games. When they seemed to be at the end of the line, the Penumbra series took off. They suddenly became well-known as masters of horror games, which saved their business. The new goal was to not just make great games but to make the scariest game ever made. And a lot of people would say they succeeded.

An Overview of The Amnesia Video Game Series

Amnesia Dark Descent is the first in the series and attributed as possibly THE game that made video game streaming as popular as it is today. This game puts as much importance on mental health as physical health. Set in a 19th century castle, you’re playing from a first-person perspective as Daniel, a Londoner essentially running for your life. What sets this game apart is that you don’t have any weapons, all you can do is run and hide and do your best to protect yourself from the monsters. And above all else – survive.

Can Lightning Strike Twice With Side Projects Like Amnesia Justine?

Amnesia A Machine for Pigs is he second in the series. It’s an indirect sequel made by The Chinese Room on behalf of Friction Games. This one takes place at the turn of the 20th century and has its own, separate characters. The third Amnesia video game is a side project, Amnesia Justine. This one was originally intended as a promotion for Valve’s Portal 2. The thing that stands out about this entry in the series is that you play as a female. Justine tells you that you are part of a psychological experiment and guides you throughout the game.
