Welcome to Frictional Games' newly created for blog for all of you interested in our work and/or horror games.

The aim with the blog is to not only cover what is currently happening at Frictional Games but also to discuss Horror Games in general. Having tried to create emotions of fear for a couple of years now, we would like to share our thoughts on the subject. As horror games are one of the few (if not the only?) game genre that focuses on invoking emotions in the player, we find it very fascinating and think that it touches many areas other games don't.

As we are currently in the middle of developing our new game called Unknown, we would also like to keep everyone up to speed on that. We have previously done so in a work log at our forum, but have not been regular with updates, something we will change with this blog!

Hope you all will enjoy!

  5. Hi,

    Just a few words to say that I really enjoy reading your blog about your vision of adventure games, puzzles, narration and the problems and the solutions that you present about many topics. This is very inspiring.

    For Amnesia I think you did a great job. Unfortunatly I do not really like horror games, especially when their are well done, so I have not been able to live the experience you created.

    I wish you a good continuation.
