The Moving Pixels Podcast Finally Gets 'Amnesia'

by G. Christopher Williams

31 October 2016

Just in time for Halloween, the Moving Pixels Podcast revisits the 2010 cult horror game Amnesia.
 

Amnesia: The Dark Descent was one of the more well regarded games of 2010, but we recently discovered that none of our regular Moving Pixels podcasters had played it at the time.

So, this week we catch ourselves up and take a look at one of the most critically acclaimed horror games of the past ten years, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, discussing (among other things) its unique approach to provoking horror and player vulnerability along with its commitment to environmental storytelling.
  

This podcast is available via Soundcloud.

Additionally, we are also available on iTunes.
