Amnesia The Dark Descent sales go over 200,000 units; dev team praise PC platform

Developer Frictional Games has been more than open on the sales of its acclaimed horror adventure game Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Today in a new blog post the developer revealed that sales of the game since its release last September have now gone over the 200,000 unit mark.

While over half of those units sold have been made via discounted prices like sales on Steam and other outlets, the blog post states, "we are in incredible good financial situation right now." The development team also thinking about sticking to the PC platform, perhaps exclusively, saying, "Based on what we have seen, the online PC market is just getting bigger and bigger, and we are convinced we are far from the end of this growth."

The blog post also hints about Frictional's next game, saying, "We aim to use the emotions that Amnesia was able to provoke and to focus them in a different direction, which will hopefully give delightfully disturbing results.." Because of their current financial stability the dev team may take some risks with its next title, saying, "While we of course do not aim to go crazy, it means that we can try out new things without risk of going bankrupt."
