Gaming Den

Hey, Hey, Hey, Everybody
Welcome to the Gaming Den

Seeing how Halloween is coming by this weekend I thought I would talk about a horror game titled, Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Below is a summary from Steam, because I would not be able to give this game justice.
The last remaining memories fade away into darkness. Your mind is a mess and only a feeling of being hunted remains. You must escape.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror. A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core.
You stumble through the narrow corridors as the distant cry is heard.
It is getting closer.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring the eerie pathways, you must also take part of Daniel's troubled memories. The horror does not only come from the outside, but from the inside as well. A disturbing odyssey into the dark corners of the human mind awaits.
A sound of dragging feet? Or is your mind playing tricks on you?
By using a fully physically simulated world, cutting edge 3D graphics and a dynamic sound system, the game pulls no punches when trying to immerse you. Once the game starts, you will be in control from the beginning to the end. There are no cut-scenes or time-jumps, whatever happens will happen to you first hand.
Something emerges out of the darkness. It's approaching. Fast.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent throws you headfirst into a dangerous world where danger can lurk behind every corner. Your only means of defense are hiding, running or using your wits.
Do you have what it takes to survive?
What I can say, is that it does a very good job at scaring you, and then some. Below is a trailer for the game.
Warning it is still very scary.

Tune in this Thursday at 9pm to listen to The Ravanator for some spooky songs from my library on wnjr.org or 91.7 FM
