The lights are on
Frictional Games said sales of its first-person horror adventure Amnesia: The Dark Descent has sold 1.4 million units in its lifetime. The sales figure includes numbers from Humble Indie Bundle and the Potato Bundle last year.
"Despite that huge number of sales, what I think is more interesting is how good the monthly sales still are," Frictional says. "Not counting any discounts, the monthly full price sales lie at over 10,000 units. This means that less then every 5th minute someone in the world is buying a copy of Amnesia.
"This is totally insane to me."
The studio also hinted at its next project. Frictional says it's working on a new first-person horror game set for release in 2014. "One of the things I was most disappointed with in Amnesia was that it never really managed to deliver any deeper themes, but was more like a shallow fright-fest. For the new project we want to change that and really try and bring a certain theme to the front.
"Our hope is that this will create a very special experience, creating horror in a much more disturbing way."
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, which is being developed by thechineseroom and produced by Frictional, is coming early next year.

Damn. This game scares the sh!t out of me, since you always feel so weak and vulnerable.
Awesome news! Frictional Games definitely deserves it. I can't wait until Machine for Pigs!
I still need to install it on my laptop >.<
most likely am going to play this for Halloween.
Oh god no... wasn't Amnesia bad enough?!?! They just want to torture us, and I know I won't be able to stay away from their new game after playing through The Dark Descent. Seriously great company though, no form of media has ever scared me as much as Amnesia has.
I forgot about this. Time to go buy it...
Great game. Freaks me out every time I play.
Please port this to the PS3.
1.4 million pants soaked and counting.
Great to hear! I can't wait for their next project to be released.
