Developers of Amnesia Tease Space Horror

Amnesia is fantastic, not just for pushing the horror genre down the correct path, but for bringing the H.P. Lovecraft style of writing to the forefront of pop-culture. While I found the game more creepy than downright scary unlike a few over-exaggerating YouTube personalities felt (*coughcough*), the team at Frictional Games proved that they are a force to be reckoned with.
After publishing the indirect sequel Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs the studio has begun teasing their next project with a fantastic 5-minute teaser. While not much is confirmed through the live-action short, it does hold a few hints and points towards a hard Sci-Fi setting. Hell yes!

The overall tone is subtle, but the feeling of tension never seems to letup, building to a climactic ending that will live you wanting more. While I fear the game will travel down the cliche path of a rogue A.I. like many modern Sci-Fi thrillers, I have complete faith that Frictional Games will pull another rabbit out of their hat with this one. I can't wait.
