Ad Infinitum

Amnesia: The Bunker is the fourth installment of the first-person survival horror series from the Frictional Games studio. This time the developer introduced several novelties that significantly diversify gameplay and give the player a greater sense of freedom. For example, it has become possible to use firearms or grenades.

Plot

The protagonist of Amnesia: The Bunker is a French soldier Henri Clement. He finds himself in a World War I-era bunker, where minor monsters and a monster on the scale of Alien from Alien: Isolation have nested. The beast reacts dynamically to our actions, making it often appear to be in several places at once.

The player's task boils down to survival in confrontation with this creature. Its difficulty is increased by the fact that the game world is semi-open, the passing of time does not work in our favor, and the actions we take often have consequences that are difficult to predict. In other words, fully exploring Amnesia: The Bunker requires completing it several times.

Mechanics

The aforementioned novelty in the series, namely firearms - specifically, the revolver - is particularly useful in tricky situations. Nevertheless, the player cannot afford to shoot enemies frequently, as the amount of ammunition he finds is severely limited.

There are, however, more ways to eliminate enemies. Larger groups of weaker monsters can be disposed of with grenades - as long as you consider the noise the explosion will cause to be worth it. After all, a monster roaming the underground is only waiting for us to betray our position.

Importantly, this can be done even in a much less spectacular way - for example, using a flashlight, as the dynamo-equipped model used by Henri Clement is extremely noisy. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of situations in the game when this tool is the only source of light at our disposal. While traversing the first-war bunker, the player also finds resources, which he can use to make (crafting) other useful items with his own hands.

Technical aspects

Graphics in Amnesia: The Bunker have been made in a similar dark style as the previous games in the series.
