From Frictional Games:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a first person horror game with focus on immersion. It is a game where atmosphere and story comes first.
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.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is brought to you by the same developers behind the critically acclaimed Penumbra series. With this new title, Frictional Games aim to take horror gaming to a new level. The game enables real-world physics, making interaction truly intuitive, and allows you to step inside the world of Amnesia. Pick up and manipulate almost any object, study them, and find a way to use them to your advantage. Feel the excitement of being an ordinary person trapped inside a fantastic and dangerous setting.
Forget about fighting back. To survive you need to use your wits. Sneak, hide, and if all else fails - run!
Forget about cutscenes and other breathers. Everything that happens, happens to you first hand. Become Daniel and uncover your past in a maze of forgotten memories.
Enter an interactive nightmare where reality is a fragile concept.
Do you have what it takes to survive?

Version: Amnesia: The Dark Descent Demo 1.0.1
Controls are easy to master. Lots of puzzles and tension that make this highly enjoyable.
Some of the tasks that need to be completed are difficult especially when you have a target and need to hit it with an object.
I am thoroughly enjoying this game. Its about stealth, survival and the finding of clues. The grey cells love it. The downside is the difficulty in hitting targets with objects. There is no way of judging how to do it without a great deal of trial and error.
All in all, give it a go, it'll keep you occupied for hours and test your mettle to survive without the usual kill and run experience.
