A series of survival horror adventure games by Frictional Games
played from a first-person interactive with a strong focus on puzzles and realistic physics. Originally announced as a trilogy, after the release of Penumbra: Overture - Episode 1
(2007), only one more sequel was announced: Penumbra: Black Plague
(2008). However, after the release of the second game, the developers sent out word to release a third game, Penumbra: Requiem
as a downloadable expansion to tie up all the loose ends.
The Penumbra games were preceded by the never fully completed Unbirth
, on which development was started in 2001 with the basic idea was to make a horror game like Resident Evil
and Silent Hill
, but in first person, with more stuff to examine and a little less violence. That initial game was eventually released in its unfinished state in May 2008 as a "goodie" for the community.
