Apple Games Features Amnesia: The Dark Descent
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Apple Games has descended into the depths of horror with a new feature article examining Frictional Games' first person horror adventure. Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The game follows the story of Daniel, an amnesiac who awakens in a desolate Prussian castle. Apple's article includes an overview of the game, an examination of H.P. Lovecraft's influence on Amnesia, and a few tips and tricks for success.

You find tinderboxes so you can light the candles you come across. If you stand too long in the dark, you find your sanity slowly beginning to drain; that is not good. Eventually you add a lantern to your inventory. It gives you light whenever you need it, but if you burn it too long, youíll run out of oil. You can find more, but this castle clearly isnít well-stocked.

During your exploration, you find other useful items too, including ropes and sticks, as well as the ingredients needed to mix potions that are used in different ways. Some things must be combined with each other, or perhaps youíll need to use an object in one place to make something happen elsewhere. There are many ways to solve Amnesiaís puzzles.

Show Us Your Dream Starship

The 1st Place winner will have their ship added to the premiere space MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game), EVE Online where countless pilots will build and fly the winners' creation.
Show us your real concept art skills and get judged by the EVE Online creative team! Entrants will need to provide their entry from all six orthogonal views in order to qualify for further consideration as a potential winning entry.
