This is without a doubt the scariest game I've played in my life. Here's what the developers wrote about it:

Amnesia – The Dark Descent is a slow paced horror game and is meant to be played alone in a dark room, late at night. It is not a game that is meant to be won. The goal is the immersion itself and to live the game's world and story.

For the best effect make sure that the gamma is set correctly in graphics options, wear headphones and have volume cranked up. Our desire above all else is to give the player an uncomfortable and haunting experience and doing these preparations will drastically increase the intended effect.

The core gameplay of Amnesia is the exploration of the environment, to discover clues and to survive, both physically and mentally. Make sure to investigate the surroundings at a gentle pace and be vary of any strange sounds – it can be vital to your survival.

Health and Sanity
Health will be decreased whenever you are sustain some kind of injury (from a hard blow, long fall, etc). If your health reaches zero you will die. However, death does not work like it usually does in traditional games. In this game; instead of simply restarting, you will not loose any progress, but something in the game world will change. This change can come in many different forms and you will never be sure what it will be. To increase your health you need to find and use bottles of herbal extract.

Your sanity is an important part of the game, and it is vital that you keep track of it. If it becomes to low, you will get both physical and mental problems, some of which can be very unpleasant. Your sanity is lowered, if you witness disturbing events, look too long at a gruesome creature or stay in the dark (more on this below). The only way to increase your sanity is by completing puzzles and other obstacles. This makes it very important that you take care of it, as you never know when you might be able to replenish it.

Because of a weak mind, you will not stand to be in the dark for too long. As soon as you step into a dark area your sanity will drop and you need to quickly go into the light. To accomplish this you can either seek out a brighter location or you can light a nearby light source. To light up a light source, you just need to focus on it and then press left mouse button. Note that you will need to have tinderboxes left in order to light something. Use these carefully, but also make sure not to stockpile as using to little might have severe on effects on your sanity.

Another way to keep out of the dark is by using the lantern. This item is found early on and will help lightening up your close surroundings. It can be lit by pressing F or by clicking on it in the inventory, and when lit up it will decrease your supply of oil. Because of this, make sure to only use it when needed. Oil can be found as bottles scattered around in the environment, or be replenished by interacting with oil barrels found at some locations.

Creature Encounters
During your journey you will come across strange creatures, lurking in the darkness. Remember that is not a shooter and that you are not an action-hero. Encounters in Amnesia are very dangerous and you need to be careful and alert to survive. First of all make sure to hide and stay still. Creatures will have more trouble spotting you if you crouch, don't move and stay in darkness. Being in darkness will also drain your sanity though so you cannot stay for too long in hiding.

When you know where the enemy is, you can try and sneak past it. To do this stay crouched and in darkness and move carefully. If you accidentally bump into something you might be heard and spotted. Of course sometimes it is just best to stay put and wait until the danger is over. However, be vary of having too low sanity and note that the horror might be coming in your direction.

If you are spotted, you need to run for it. Try and hide in a room and barricade the door. Also make sure not to look too long at the enemy as it drains your sanity and could give you more trouble than you already have.

I've played the demo thanks to steam... but i think it freaked out on me... everything went upside down and inverted... so it was ridiculous to play then.

But, overall it had that freaking creepy atmosphere... Shocked
