Amnesia: rebirth is so scary that the developers at Frictional Games added a new Adventure Mode to the PC version today, with a similar update scheduled for PlayStation in a few weeks.
Much like what Frictional did SOMASafe mode, Amnesia: rebirthThe new Adventure Mode makes enemies more passive, lights up dark areas and removes the game’s fear mechanic, which in normal play can attract monsters and even result in a game over if it gets out of control. The developers also threw in some new puzzles to concretize the experience.
“The reason behind Adventure Mode is that we know there are a lot of people out there who can not really stomach the horror, but who will love other aspects of a game that Amnesia: rebirth, ”Explained creative director Fredrik Olsson in a video announcing the mode. “It has a strong story, interesting history, cool environments, and of course a pretty unique theme. All of these things are things that we hope Adventure Mode will introduce to new players. ”
While it is impossible to remove everything that could give some heebie-jeebies, Amnesia: rebirthThe new Adventure Mode sounds as comprehensive as possible. I think it’s super cool that developers are starting to think outside the box when it comes to accessibility in video games, and I really hope this trend continues.
