Scarier than before

Amnesia: The Dark Descent developer, Frictional Games, is working on a new "super secret project" that will deliver deeper horror themes than their previous work, it was revealed on the studio's official blog.

"One of the things I was most disappointed with in Amnesia was that it never really managed to deliver any deeper themes, but was more like a shallow fright-fest," wrote studio co-founder Thomas Grip. "For the new project we want to change that and really try and bring a certain theme to the front. Our hope is that this will create a very special experience, creating horror in a much more disturbing way."

According to Grip, who links his paper on in-game storytelling as a glimpse into what the future game may have in store, the game's tech is in working order and the studio hopes it will release in 2014.

The sequel to Dark Descent, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, is scheduled to release Halloween 2012.
