Penumbra


In Penumbra the player finds himself in an underground base on Greenland, searching for his lost father. It's an adventure horror game, free from classic first person shooter elements, with an emphasise on puzzle solving and exploring. Constantly on your toes you will never know what to expect, with no weapons how do you protect yourself?


Sounds like the thing. <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->



The problem I have is that it doesn't work on my machines. One is too old (I think) and the other may not be powerful enough. The download is 150Mb. <!--emo&:angry:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/angry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Will someone please tell me what I'm missing out on. </div>

There are plenty more fish in the sea, get your tackle out and see what bites.

I need to know if it's worth solving whatever problem I had. </div>

I've just double checked the requirements and both of my PCs easily exceed them. I don't for the life of me know why they didn't work then. I'll have a browse around the site forum. </div>

It would appear that the graphics are my problem also.



On one machine I have a 128Mb Matrox which isn't very well catered for in games.



On the other I have a FX5200go, it should be powerful enough but I may need to change the drivers. I've tried before a couple of times and it just didn't work. <!--emo&:angry:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/angry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>
