Frictional Games have unveiled a brand new website which teases their next project, which seems to be the next entry in their Amnesia survival horror series.
At the current moment in time there is not much to be said about the site apart from that it seems to confirm that Frictional are following the trend they set with their Penumbra games and making Amnesia a series too. Personally, we can’t see there being much connection to Daniel, the protagonist of The Dark Descent, with this new game. So we’re going to presume for now that this follow-up title is probably more thematically connected to The Dark Descent rather than by location or protagonist. But you never know.
The only other thing that can be said about the site is that it has a blurred out image, which, if you back off from your monitor far enough, looks like a baby turkey holding two candles. Not much there then (it’s not actually that by the way). Click on that image though and you are taken to a Google Map of China, which we presume to be connected to the words on the website, “Something is emerging”. A survival horror set in China, perhaps?
There’s nothing else to go on unfortunately except that RPS did find a little hidden message reading “Welcome to the next frictional game site, a site with information about our game projects in development. We use this site to post content about a project in development, during the period it does not have a final name decided.”
So there you have it. Are you bricking it yet? We know we are but cannot wait to hear more! You can read our interview with Frictional in Issue 19 of The Indie Game Magazine right here (subscribers only)!
