Penumbra: Necrologue is a third-party total conversion modification released for Amnesia: The Dark Descent in 2014 by CounterCurrent Games. It was in development for 2 years. It continues the storyline after the events of Penumbra: Requiem, and like its predecessors, heavily focuses on exploration and survival.
The gameplay is identical to that of the Penumbra series. The game features puzzles and several monsters that cannot be defeated. Players must use their wits and hide or run away to survive. Almost every in-game object can be interacted with, such as doors, drawers, boxes, bricks, etc.
Join Philip in the last part of his journey as he tries to find the answers to everything he witnessed in the Archaic Shelter while trying to stay alive from the many horrors that await him deep below the ice. Will he finally be able to escape the nightmare, and see daylight again?
