"The idea is to convey as clearly as possible that the player is in control of the character throughout the whole game," Frictional explains. "There are no cut-scenes or any sort of moments where control is taken away to force the narrative forward."
Previously named 'Unknown,' Amnesia: The Dark Descent is tentatively slated to hit PC, Linux and Mac in August costing $20 and can be pre-ordered for $16. A developer commentary track will be added to the game if 2,000 pre-orders are received by May 31.
Looks pretty rad, I like the world interactivity and the cinamatic-ness to it. Definitely going to give it a whirl.
