Amnesia: The Dark Descent gets a free expansion!

Amnesia on Steam now comes with with 20% more horror and 10% less cake. Enjoy this brand new flavor of canned horror - manufactured with license by Aperture Science.


(Might contain traces of potatoes)

UPDATE:
Now with the Portal 2 ARG over, we will release the new content, an add-on story called "Justine", for all non-steam versions of the game aswell. And there might be other surprises too ;)

  16. I wish I knew how to save the 1st guy, all i can manage is to not kill him and move on

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great news to hear it won't be steam exclusive forever. I may dislike steam, but I like both Portal and Amnesia. I also like free extra content!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. I didn't see any potatoes, I am disapointed :P
    anyhow a neat little expansion guys, keep it up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I click the "Justine" button and I get nothing but a black screen and a crash message when I return to desktop. :C

    But the normal game itself is working properly.

  25. Dr_Yomismo: Choose english as lang and try again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Will someone explain to me what this has to do with Portal?

    ReplyDelete
  27. why is this steam only :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thomas hinted that the new content will be available outside of Steam later on. Hopefully free as well.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I made it through but I didn't save anyone. In fact, I killed the first two on purpose? The third one I was just too damn scared to even look at him. D:

    Does this make me a bad person?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm in the room where the guy walks around looking for you.. I can't get the door i went through to open.. and I circled the room a few times.. I can't find a way out.. after throwing a bunch of crap at the thing.. I gave up and let him end me.. help?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I hope you'll have a download link for this expansion somewhere soon.
    Steam is just too evil! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you, Thomas, now it works.
    Damn you, Thomas, now I'm so ******* scared.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm just another disappointed linux gamer who can forget about this expansion pack.
    Maybe if there are more of us, the expansion will be released sooner outside of steam? :P

    ReplyDelete
  34. GABRLLL!!!11

    I want to, but I am afraid I am too afraid. Ironically.

    ReplyDelete
  35. So, you were working on an expansion all these months instead of a new game?, :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. I bought from Frictional directly because I wanted to support the dev. Why don't we get the addon?

    ReplyDelete
  37. A new expansion pack for one of my all time favourite games? YES!! No, wait, steam only. This is so disappointing :(. When is it going to be released for the rest of us?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Arf! A Steam exclusivity...

    1) I have already have Amnesia, buy on the Frictional Store.
    2) I have Linux... So, I haven't Steam, sorry...
    3) ... No three... :P

    ReplyDelete
  39. nice surprise by fg. hope comes soon for non-steam-user ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks for the free expansion!

    I hope you guys have also profited a lot from this promotion. Enough to make more games like Amnesia, of course ;)

    Also, is there any way that I can donate directly to Frictional Games? I already have the games, I wouldn't want to buy them twice. Is there any way to make a direct monetary donation?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Nice try, Valve.

    I'm still not buying Portal 2 unless it comes out for Linux.

    ReplyDelete
  42. could you atleast give us a hint as to when it'll be available for the non steam purchases. I think it's kind of mean to release it on steam first and then make us wait, when we bought it straight from you guys.

    ReplyDelete
  43. this is not nice.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What we need to buy? amnesia (7.50€) or potato sack (34.47€)???

    ReplyDelete
  45. Only need to buy Amnesia, no sack needed.

    ReplyDelete
  46. thanks thomas love you looool

    ReplyDelete
  47. soo any information on when we can get the expansion and from where? :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. im not 100% sure but i think there is no actual release date for the non steam expansion yet

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have the Linux version of Amnesia.

    How get this expansion please? I love Amnesia! :D

    ReplyDelete
  50. OMG!!!
    I thought that the April the 1st post was just a joke, but it was so much more!

    You crazy people from Frictional, and your other crazy accomplices!!!
    Why weren't we informed of this ARG-thing?!
    I never knew such thing even existed, much less that u people were involved...

    What an elaborate mind-f*ck!

    For all who are wondering were the deleted post and the game expansion all about, read this.

  51. To the Linux users - do not worry, and actually read the article. It may seem a little bit like we are being treated as second class citizens because of the lack of Steam, but they said they will get it working on the other versions, and that in the end is all we could ask for.

    ReplyDelete
  52. @Hamish
    That bit was added just today.

    ReplyDelete
  53. When exactly does Justine come out for non-steam versions? I have waited for far too long, me and my friends want to be terrified again!

    ReplyDelete
  54. no idea but they are working on non steam version i heard

    ReplyDelete
  55. Since Portal 2 is released, hopefully a save feature would be added making online let's plays more easily done. I enjoyed the DLC, despite feeling the ending to be a bit rushed. Perhaps had this been more psychological and that in the end, we have a final confrontation with the father (in Justine's mind and thus sealing her demons) then this DLC could have been it's own game.

  56. pff... still waiting for it :(

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yaaa... Gimme some Horror, baby!!!
