Frictional Games today announced a first look at in-game footage of the company's new horror game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, in the form of a teaser video. The game's website has been updated with general information about the game, screenshots, the new teaser video, and details about pre-ordering Amnesia.

A recent email from Frictional Games revealed that the Mac version of the game is already functional and at this stage of development runs on a PPC 1.4Ghz eMac with a 64MB Radeon 9600 card. System requirements have not been finalized yet.

"We recently finished a massive testing session of the game to much success. With that behind us we now know how Amnesia will play like and what it takes to finish it. This means we feel confident in moving forward and sharing more juicy details about the game. This includes crucial things such as availability, pricing and what the game is all about." - Thomas Grip, Co-founder.

Web site
General information about the game, screenshots and a teaser are the main additions to the heavily updated web site. We have also added information about how to pre-order and where the final game will be available for purchase. Check back for future updates with new screens, information and, as release draws closer, a demo. The web site also features something of a first in the history of computer games - the "pre-order-o-meter". Watch as blood fill up for every new pre-order placed! If we reach 2000 pre-orders before end of May, new content will be added to the game.

Teaser
Take a deep breath and prepare yourself to experience the first real gameplay video released. This teaser gives a first look at what sort of experience we are aiming for when playing Amnesia, it lasts for over three minutes and consists of one single clip. The idea is to convey as clearly as possible that the player is in control of the character throughout the whole game. There are no cut-scenes or any sort of moments where control is taken away to force the narrative forward.

Status of Amnesia: The Dark Descent
The game is now up and running on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X! All platforms have participated in the recent testing session and performed over expectations. We are pleased to announce that the game will get a simultaneous release on all platforms!

Many companies seem to view the PC as a "dying gaming platform" and we see this as a great opportunity. Amnesia is a modern 3D game that from the very beginning has been created with the PC in mind. It has modest demands on the PC hardware compared to recent console ports and because of this we are able to make sure a broader audience can experience the game as intended.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is scheduled for an August 2010 release. The digital download version is available to preorder now for $16, 20% off the release price of $20. A boxed version for retail release is also planned and information will be released as it becomes available.
