. In the game you play a character with amnesia who's trying to figure out who he is, why he's in the asylum, and what the hell is going on. While it's not exactly the most original plot the game is fairly solid and worth your time and money if you can drag yourself away from Modern Warfare 2
GOG.com Now Accepting Patients to Sanitarium
Addictively insane mix of classic point-and-click adventure and horror game is now offered at the DRM-free digital distribution outlet.
Warsaw, Poland – November 10, 2009. GOG.com (http://www.gog.com), the leading purveyor of classics and hidden gems from PC gaming’s past, has reached an agreement with XS Games to offer the classic adventure game, Sanitarium, for download. The game is already up at GOG.com for only $9.99, DRM-free and packed with additional materials.
Sanitarium is a point-and-click psychological-horror adventure game. The player controls Max Laughton, one of the patients in a bizarre, medieval-styled asylum. Max suffers from amnesia after a car accident, and he's trying to find out what happened and how he ended up in this creepy place. The game takes the player on a journey through the asylum and its surroundings, as well as through the mind of a mad-man – Max himself. The mature story and eerie atmosphere make this one of the best and definitely one of the scariest horror-adventure games of all time.
“We're very happy to bring back another great game that could have been overlooked by many and deserves a second chance,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “Although Sanitarium was released 11 years ago, it still has a well developed and mature story and it still brings chills and thrills to gamers. It’s definitely worth checking out.”
Sanitarium is available for download at GOG.com for $9.99, DRM-free and compatible with Windows XP and Vista.
