On April 18 Frictional Games joined Valve to celebrate the release of Portal 2 and wrap up our collaboration which has spanned the last few months. During this period we have worked with not only Valve, but an entire range of talented independent developers, to give gamers a unique gaming experience. Together we created a massive Alternate Reality Game which spanned 13 Steam games, as well as plenty of internet forums and publications, and the real world. Frictional Games’ main contribution to this game was a DLC called Justine and truth be told, it plays pretty damn well even without the other stuff.
Justine has now been repackaged to survive in the outside world and we are happy to announce that we are giving it away to all owners of Amnesia for free. Turn off the lights, put the headphones on and play another story produced by the original team, the multiple IGF award winning, Frictional Games.
But, there is more…
For all our fans who pre-ordered or bought the game through our store, as a thank you for hanging in there and supporting us, we give you Mikko Tarmia’s beloved soundtrack composed for Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Simply log on to our shelf and download it today. For everyone else, who aren’t eligible for a free soundtrack, it can still be purchased from our store.
That still isn’t enough…
A collection of five short-stories set in the world of Amnesia, written by our writer and illustrated by our concept artists, will be included in the update. They are sure to answer some of your questions about our universe, but also have you come up with a few new ones.
Justine and the story collection will be available through the Amnesia v1.2 update, which is available from today. The update also includes some bug fixes and now officially include Russian voice and subtitles (Thanks to Snowball).
Thank you all for playing Amnesia and yet an even bigger thank you to everyone who participated in the mad puzzles of the Portal 2 ARG.
