Daniel awakens in a desolate Prussian castle without any memories to explain his situation. A letter written by himself reveals that the amnesia is actually self-inflicted. The mysterious message urges him to seek out and kill Alexander, a man residing deep below the castle. Hunted by a dark shadow, Daniel can see no other way out. If he is to save his life and mind, he needs to find out what it is all really about. It is his only hope for salvation. A dark descent awaits.

Do you have what it takes to survive?
- True Survival Horror - Horror is not a feature it is the very essence of Amnesia.
- Unique Physics-driven Interaction - Based on real-world physics, this innovative system allows for a natural approach to interaction. Slowly open a door or throw it open. Closely examine an item or throw it across the room. Stack things together to climb and reach that upper level.
- Storytelling- Inspired by true events of human evil, the game tells a terrifying tale of the darkness within us all. A thought provoking journey into the human psyche, forcing the question: what would you have done?
- Optimized for your Computer - The game engine has been designed to accommodate both old and new computers. Are your computer a few years older than it should be? No problem, Amnesia will run and look incredible even on low performance systems. Newer computers can take advantage of special high-end features, such as SSAO and parallax mapping, making the game look even better.
