New Trailer for Penumbra Collection Revealed

NEW YORK - Feb. 11, 2009

As the release of the Penumbra Collection in February 2009 draws near, Paradox Interactive has released a brand new trailer and screenshots for the concluding expansion in the collection, Requiem.

Released in August 2008 and developed by the talented creators of Penumbra, Frictional Games, Requiem was originally a download only expansion to the series.

Commenting on the conclusion of the Penumbra series, Lead Programmer and Co-Founder of Frictional Games, Thomas Grip, said,“Requiem is the epilogue for the Penumbra series that follows Philip’s continuing descent into insanity. The puzzle-oriented expansion ties together all the loose ends that the other games left unresolved. What really makes Requiem unique is the effort we put into advancing physics based puzzles and trying to create an intriguing and surreal experience.”
