18 Games Like Amnesia

Games Like Amnesia Our collection of games like Amnesia features the very best games from the horror genre that are sure to have you scared and unable to sleep.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a survival horror video game developed by Frictional Games. The game also incorporates some puzzle elements and is unique in that players have no weapons to defend themselves from the dangers of the game.

Players take control of the protagonist as they explore a mysterious castle through a first person perspective. The game requires players to interact with the game world rather than simply toggling objects. For example players must actually push or pull open doors which adds to the realism and atmosphere.

Amnesia quickly rose to fame as an innovative horror adventure that has since led to the development of many Amnesia based games that use similar game mechanics or alter the formula slightly while maintaining a high quality dark atmosphere.

The games like Amnesia on this page all promise a truly scary experience that will both entertain and keep you from being able to fall asleep. The games here also include mysterious story lines, physics based puzzles and eerie atmospheres.
