Most of the game's story is told through notes you can find in the environment but there are also flashbacks that occur when you step into certain rooms.
Amnesia is game that everyone should experience in my opinion, even if you’re not a fan of having the pants scared off of you. I say this because it proves once and for all that video games are capable of delivering the same emotional intensity and indeed the same scope of emotions found in other mediums like film, music and literature. Not only is it capable, Amnesia proves that video games may even be the most effective medium for delivering emotion, since it is the only medium where things are happening to you and not someone else. You are the person being chased down a dark hallway by a deadly monster; you’re not watching it happen to some teenage girl. You are the one suffering from insanity; you’re not just reading about someone else’s breakdown. I think Amnesia is one of the first games to deliver these types of experiences but it certainly will not be the last.
