Amnesia: Dark Descent is a scary, scary video game. But just what makes it so scary? Can you, say, simply layer the game interface and soundtrack over the real world, and suddenly the real world is scary?

Yes.

Amnesia was released last year on the PC, and showed that scrabbling around in the dark with death only a footstep away at any given moment is as terrifying an experience as it's ever been.
