Good. Any additional support and exposure this game can get, the better. I hope.

The box art is far more scary than whatever that game threw at me. Good grief, who shat and made that into this boxart?

I'm waiting on the collector edition where the box will fly off the shelf and hit me during the night.

LOL! I found the game to be scary, what I've played of it so far. I'd call the box art more ugly than scary myself.

Oh yes, this is the most scary game I've ever played. Hell, I believe it's the most scary game ever made. I'm just saying the boxart is so insanely ugly it would drive Lovecraft himself mad.

You guys struck my curiosity, so I watched a couple game trailers on YouTube and there seems to be some Thief1-esque to it. Is that a true statement?

It looks to be a decent game. The ambient sounds and music are creepy by themselves; I can only imagine what the rest of the game holds.......

Sweet. Now I can get good version.

Guess I won't bother finishing Pneumbra Overture or is not finishing it a mistake?

Other than being the same original engine and by the same developers the games aren't related.

But I do recommend you finish Penumbra Overture because it's a great game as well. Also I haven't tried playing it after Amnesia yet, it may feel a lot less polished in comparison.

I just can't get immersed enough in this game to feel scared. I tried playing late at night with all the lights out, but no luck.

Maybe I should find an abandoned warehouse and play there on a laptop around midnight.

An above average set of headphones does wonders for this one.

I own this game, but I have a hard time playing it. I have yet to see a monster, but I feel I am right on the verge of doing so; The hint for my current level goes something like: To run, hold down the shift key.

I bring this on myself though. I only play at night with headphones on and the lights off.

A typical session involves me playing it for 30 seconds to 2 minutes and turning it back off again.

If you want to buy this game, please buy it directly from Frictional. If you buy the retail version, THQ takes a hefty cut and the developers make less money.

On a side note... wow, that box art really is atrocious. I hope THQ isn't taking too big of a cut because it looks like it cost them $1 to do that box art. They should have just used the art that they used for the game's icon.

Fatal Frame scared me way more, and the fact that there are literally only three enemies in that game bothered me.. ONE of which you never physically see.

Still a great title, but after you see the two possible "monsters" ( which happen to look like splicers ) it burned out a bit for me.

It's about on par with some of the good moments of Thief. Maybe not up to par with some of the most terror inducing parts of the Thief series but i really appreciated Amnesia, it's the next best thing, and there is nothing else close to it these days.
