i thought it was a cool idea to be able to throw objects in the water to distract the attacker.


i was jumping from box to box then found some books and started tossing them and it went after them instead of me

That spot game me a hard time..


I don't remember it going after books though. I was playing with the handle in that room for a while before I moved further into the map. I thought it might lower the water or distract the monster, but neither happened. After the noise from the lever stopped I moved out into the hallway and got to the door, then I had to go all the way back to the lever. The human chunks helped alot in the next area.

I had problems with the map before that too. It took me a while to figure out I had to move the boxes and crawl through the hole in the wall.



I'm not very good at these types of puzzle games or games that are scary. :P

It's pretty tiny... 160MB demo and the website says the whole game is just a 3GB download.

It looks pretty good too and the requirements aren't much: 2.0 GHz processor, 2048 MB RAM, Radeon HD/GeForce 6. I could probably even play this on my old junker of a desktop at work.

Graphics are dated but still good in some ways. I like the game though, very atmospheric and properly scary! Very fresh approach, I'll have to check out the full version.

Ok. tried it. Seems very good. Very similar to penumbra imo. But thats a good thing.

BUT i have weird problem with framerate. The game works butter 60fps (slmost no matter what setting) but when I go to my inventory and back(or refill lamp etc) then it is crippling around 20 ;/ I tried turning off some settings but its always crippling after I use hud interface elements. WTF

The number of samples of SSAO in this game kills your FPS; it's a slide show. It sucks that it doesn't take advantage of SLI. It only uses one of my GPUs. I have to play the game with 16 samples and even then the game isn't smooth. I mean damn, it's more demanding than Crysis and Metro 2033.
