Penumbra: Requiem Released For PC
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive has announced the release of Penumbra: Requiem, an expansion to the Penumbra indie horror series. As with previous episodes in the atmospheric game world, independent team Frictional Games developed the expansion.

Requiem will tie up loose ends from previous installments and as Philip progresses he will encounter various characters from his past. The game delves deeper into the world of the Tuurngait infection and personalities from the previous two games, Overture and Black Plague. Long lost friends will return and aid Philip on his quest.

"Penumbra: Requiem is an expansion to Penumbra: Black Plague and is to be considered an epilogue to that game and not as a new episode in the Penumbra franchise. The main goal with Penumbra: Requiem has been to focus more on the physics puzzles and see how far the current engine could be taken. This has made Requiem into a game that focuses more on gameplay and puzzles than the previous Penumbra instalments and a game that is more experimental in nature.

Although having a strong emphasis on puzzles the game still features a dense atmosphere, a trade mark of the Penumbra series. In Overture the goal was to induce strong fears from isolation, in Black Plague a main theme was paranoia and Requiem does its best to deliver a nightmarish and feverish atmosphere. Penumbra: Requiem is an attempt to deliver a fresh and rewarding experience and not just some rehash of previous material."
IMG has received word from Frictional Games that the Mac version of the game is estimated to reach release in about a month's time. Follow the links below for more information.
