Cope with your fear and remain sane!
The series of horror games called Amnesia consists of three chapters. The first one tells the story of a young man Daniel who comes to his senses in an old castle and find a note written with his hand that tells that he killed some scary alien creature and is now hiding here. This is enough to intrigue the player making them wanna find out what happened before the hero lost his memory. Yes, in every part, the main character has amnesia which serves as the main trigger for investigation. Besides, there is some barely comprehensive dark urge growing inside you. At first, these are just vague sensations and pictures, but they gain momentum and bring you on the verge of collapse. Keeping an eye on the hero’s sanity is one of the tasks you have to pay special attention to in the game. The best way to do it is to steer clear of dark places because the absence of light makes the evil voices in your head sound even more pressing. However, it’s not always possible to do – namely, when you encounter monsters, the best place you can hide from them is some dimly lit corner and that’s where you will start losing your mind. So it’s important to keep some source of light at hand – in the third chapter, you have to closely monitor your supply of matches, for instance.

However, he is obsessed with ideas of making the world a better place, feeding the poor and resorting justice for everyone. To achieve this goal, he builds a grandiose installation called the Machine – something that turns into his personal nightmare. Descending deep underground, into the heart of his own creation, the hero will discover that he made a real monster that now threatens the lives of his own children.
Finally, the third part of the game takes us to the desert when the heroine who survived a plane crash is searching for her husband. As she explores the locations and caves, she stumbles upon traces of ancient civilizations and a portal to another world.
