Many players decide whether they should buy a game or not based on how long it takes to beat it. I’m here to give you the information you need about Amnesia: The Bunker so that you can make that decision and generally know what to expect from the horror title.
How Long Is Amnesia: The Bunker?
When I first got Amnesia: The Bunker, I decided to go in blind. I didn’t even play the demo trial, so basically, zero knowledge. I went with Normal difficulty to experience the game the way it’s intended and it took me around seven to eight hours to reach the end credits. I explored a lot, took my time to read all of the notes, and examined all of the pictures…
You also need to take into account that I didn’t know anything about the mechanics, I didn’t remember the complete layout of the hallways and rooms and didn’t know what to expect from the game at all. I died a lot, made a lot of resource management mistakes, and was lost roaming around The Bunker, trying to figure out what the heck to do next. All that adds up.
How Much Time Do You Need to Finish Amnesia: The Bunker?
After completing my initial Normal difficulty run, I went ahead to do a “speedrun” on Easy difficulty to see what that looks like, what are the differences, and to get a better idea of how to complete the game in the most optimized manner. Now, I’m not a hardcore speedrunner, but by skipping the tutorial, it took me just two hours to beat the game on Easy Mode. Make of this what you will.
I think I only died once in that run. Silly me, I was playing music and didn’t hear the audio signal that indicates that my demise is imminent. I won’t tell you what exactly that’s about because I do not want to spoil the game for you.
There is a glitched speed run that clocks at 1 minute and 49 seconds on YouTube (please watch it after you complete the game).
