The game’s emphasis on challenging problem solving and survival, offers players an unparalleled psychological thrill. Played from a first person perspective and powered by a 3D engine utilizing cutting edge technology, Penumbra is a substantial advancement of the horror genre.

“The horror experience is enhanced by the unique physics system that allows the gamer to interact with nearly every object, which gives a vivid and intense feeling of involvement,” said Sound Director / Co-founder of Frictional Games, Jens Nilsson.
