Penumbra:Requiem released

Filed under
Gaming

Penumbra: Requiem is an expansion for the horror game Penumbra: Black Plague and takes off where the last game ended. Requiem sees Philip, the game protagonist, falling deeper into madness and has to fight inner demons as well as outer ones.

Requiem takes the player on a journey filled with psychological horror, tense atmosphere and unspeakable things constantly lurking in the darkness. The player will have to figure out what is real and what is not, the correct decision meaning the difference between life and death.

Thanks to LinuX-gamers.net for the heads-up.

Requiem Homepage. There is no demo for this expansion of the series.

There are demos of Penumbra: Overture and Penumbra: Black Plague to whet your appetite. Or you could see my review of Penumbra Overture. The Black Plague sequel was equally exilarating, if not even moreso.

The first two games cost $20 each and the Requiem expansion costs $10, or you can purchase all 3 for $35.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
