Penumbra Collection - The Terror Hits North America

The PC Horror Trilogy Ships to Stores

Paradox Interactive is pleased to announce that the Penumbra Collection, the critically acclaimed and innovative horror trilogy, has shipped to stores across North America. Comprised of the games Penumbra: Overture , Penumbra: Black Plague, and the recent expansion pack Requiem, Penumbra Collection is the complete story of Philip Buchanon and his journey through terror.

Commenting on the process of developing the Penumbra series, Co-Founder and Sound Director at Frictional Games, Jens Nilsson said, “We wanted to make a survival horror game with less violence, but with more puzzle solving and exploration as gameplay elements. We wanted to explore horror games as we had ideas that we felt could contribute to increasing the feeling of horror in the games through minimal use of weapons, hands on physics and believable puzzles and solutions. We came up with practical puzzles, which could be solved with a mix of items and physics. The idea of having believable solutions was to further enhance the players feeling of being part of the game, using physics and believable items to make the gameplay more hands on and exciting.”

Penumbra Collection is available in stores everywhere with a suggested retail price of $19.99.
