For those of you who haven't, it's a video game that's meant to be really, really scary. And this morning, on a whim, I decided to download the demo.
I should mention here, I don't mix well with horror. I can sit through it, and I can generally avoid screaming, but I am the type to shut my eyes, hide behind a pillow and whimper to whomever I'm watching the movie/playing the game with to tell me when I'm about to miss an important part.
No shame, I know I'm not the only one.
Anyway, I know enough about Amnesia to have heard of the infamous 'water' scene.
I was just playing, and I walk into an area, get out the lamp, take two steps forward, get blinded momentarily to find all of the candles out. Sighing, I took another step forward and realised, with that all too familiar sinking feel, that my character was standing in water.
So, naturally, I ran like fuck onto the nearest floating box.
And then the splashes started, so I turned the lamp out and watched them get closer.
And then some invisible creature attacked my character, and I responded by pausing the game, saving and quitting, all the while muttering "Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope, nope..."
Which basically means I'm taking a short break to get my pulse back to normal.
I'm thinking about seeing if I can edit a picture together of my... Miserable gameplay.
But, in other news, I have been writing, and it isn't for the Games, so you might be lucky enough to see it one day.
