Shock Horror: Frictional Tease Next ‘Amnesia’ Game

Frictional Games have unveiled a brand new website which teases their next project, which seems to be the next entry in their Amnesia survival horror series.RPS are on the ball with this one as they spotted a new website opened up by the official (no fakery) Frictional Games guys, under the highly imaginative guise of nextfrictionalgame.com.

At the current moment in time there is not much to be said about the site apart from that it seems to confirm that Frictional are following the trend they set with their Penumbra games and making Amnesia a series too. Personally, we can’t see there being much connection to Daniel, the protagonist of The Dark Descent, with this new game. So we’re going to presume for now that this follow-up title is probably more thematically connected to The Dark Descent rather than by location or protagonist. But you never know.The only other thing that can be said about the site is that it has a blurred out image, which, if you back off from your monitor far enough, looks like a baby turkey holding two candles

Amnesia: Justine Update and Original Soundtrack Available

Justine has now been repackaged for fans of Frictional Games’s Amnesia: The Dark Descent. For those of you just joining us, DIY’s Erik Johnson gave horror adventure Amnesia a glowing review last year. Turns out the judges of the 2011 Independent Games Festival felt the same way, handing out three awards: Audio, Technical, and Direct2Drive Vision.

It’s great to see the team hasn’t gotten slothy with its IP. This update includes a collection of five short-stories set in the world of Amnesia. Says the press release, “They are sure to answer some of your questions about our universe, but also have you come up with a few new ones.” Justine and the story collection will be available through the Amnesia v1.2 update, which became available this week. The update also includes some bug fixes and now includes Russian voice and subtitles.

With sounds great enough to win an IGF award, Amnesia‘s team is smart to release a soundtrack. This week also marks Mikko Tarmia’s soundtrack landing on Frictional Games’ Store.

Ready for that update? Grab it on the link below. Come back and let us know how scary these new stories are!

A Look at Amnesia: The Dark Descent’s Level Editor

Frictional Games, the small Swedish development studio, just released a new trailer showcasing the level editor for their upcoming game Amnesia: The Dark Descent. From conception to execution, the video shows just how easy it is to create and subsequently play out your own horrifying levels (ideally due to their spooky nature, not craftsmanship). It reminds me of the good old days of mapping out Doom levels to trade on floppy disks. It’s good to see such support for user input before the game is even out (currently slated for a 2010 release).

The Swedish team at Frictional is best known for the Penumbra series, chock full of atmospheric spookiness. Amnesia appears to follow that strong tradition of strong storytelling and control of tone.
