Penumbra: Black Plague is a first-person perspective horror adventure game and a sequel to Peneumbra: Overture.

In Penumbra: Black Plague, we assume the role of Philip, a man locked in terrifying underground complex, who searches for information on his deceased father. Surrounded by enemies, he has to face not only the danger that lurks in the dark, but also the puzzles that uncover subsequent fragments of the mystery once solved.

Black Plague makes use of an advanced physics engine that gives the player control over nearly all items that appear in the game’s environment. If we want to move something, we have to grab it with the mouse cursor and make an appropriate movement. It applies to pretty much every element such as drawers, furniture and the like.

The soundtrack that builds the tension and introduces the mysterious atmosphere of the game is an important part of Black Plague. The sound effects also contribute to creating the feeling of terror.
