Amnesia: The Dark Descent wins three awards in IGF 2011

By on March 3, 2011

Amnesia was one of the best games of 2010. Developed by Frictional Games, it was the horror experience we’ve all been waiting for. At first the game didn’t sale well, despite the great reviews it was receiving. Things however changed, as Frictional Games is now very happy with the game’s sales and is making plans for its next game.

Amnesia, which had sold over 200,000 copies though January, took home three prizes during the Independent Games Festival Awards ceremony for Excellence in Audio, Technical Excellence, and the $10,000 Direct2Drive Vision award.

“I think that we need to buy another bag or get more luggage,” Frictional co-founder Thomas Grip said upon accepting the oversized check accompanying the Direct2Drive Award. “After three years of thinking we’re not going to make games anymore and hating everything and living on noodles… it’s totally getting done… and getting awards for it, that seems like too much.”
