Graphics compatibility test up. Please test!

I just uploaded a compatibility test that will check so your computer will support the graphics in Amnesia. Please test it as it will help us make the release version work on as many computers as possible.

You can get the test and more info here:

Please keep all feedback in the forum thread since that makes it easier for us to keep track of all data.

Thanks in advance to all who test!

Chance of Gaming Podcast

When Adam contacted me about being interviewed for his Podcast “Chance of Gaming” I had two immediate questions.


1) What the hell is a podcast?


2) What the hell do I have to talk about?


I am decidedly un- hip, I do not tweet and I refuse to buy an I-phone.


I took some time out to listen to the Chance of Gaming Podcasts and found their style to be an R rated entertaining and irreverent look at all things gaming, from board to miniature to computer games.


I agreed to the interview but I wasn’t even sure I would be able to fill twenty minutes with anything interesting. Turns out once you get me started you won’t be able to shut me up. If you have some time on your hands and you want to learn a bit more about me and the way I create my models, give a listen to Chance of Gaming Episode 10. I do recommend that you try out the other episodes as well… I found them entertaining and even learned a thing or two.

So sit back in your favorite chair, relax and enjoy!

A cry for help!

Release of Amnesia: The Dark Descent is now getting dangerously close and we are hard at work polishing, fixing bugs, spell checking, feeding the beast and answering mails. In between this we also need to have time to do PR work, but unfortunately we do not have time nor resources to do as much as we like. We therefore would like to ask you, dear Reader, for a small favor.

To be able to continue making games we depend on people knowing about them. This is something that you could help out with! Doing so requires very little effort and below follows a list of a some things that would help us tremendously:
  • If you see a preview, news post or whatnot about Amnesia, please Tweet, Facebook, Digg or in some other way post about it and help spread the word.
  • If you find one of our blog posts interesting, up it on Reddit, Retweet and/or share it on Facebook (buttons found at the end of the post)
  • If your favorite gaming blog / website / magazine does not cover Amnesia, drop them a mail saying they should. They are free to contact us here.
  • If a website you frequent is lacking up-to-date information on the game, such as box-shot, release date, etc, mail them about it.
  • Any sort of help in spreading, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated by us! Many small streams eventually form a river. :)
That's all! Thanks to all of you who have supported us so far!
