Amnesia: The Dark Descent follow-up teased

Frictional's survival horror heading to China?

Acclaimed PC survival horror Amnesia: The Dark Descent could be getting a sequel, judging by a new teaser site posted by developer Frictional Games.

As spotted by Rock Paper Shotgun, the page sports the Amnesia logo, a blurry image and the phrase "Something is emerging".

Click on the image and you're taken to a Google Maps view of China.

The site's meta data offers up the following key words: "3D game, frictional games, advanced physics, survivial [sic] horror, action adventure, first person, horror, scary, HPL, work in progress, upcoming game, next frictional game, game development."

It also states: "Welcome to the next frictional game site, a site with information about our game projects in development. We use this site to post content about a project in development, during the period it does not have a final name decided."

The thoroughly squirm-inducing original launched back in 2010 to widespread critical acclaim.

"It's a brave experiment in the genre, a more solid package than the Penumbra games and stops at nothing to make you truly, deeply uncomfortable," read Eurogamer's 8/10 Amnesia: The Dark Descent review.
