In Blackout, you wake up with complete amnesia next to a headless corpse, and from there you venture out into the city to try and discover was has happened. The game's tagline is Escape your fate - if you can


Blackout was unique in several ways: Game designer Michael Valeur has stated that he wanted to incorporate dolls into the computer game medium, and thus all characters in-game are filmed dolls. The game also allows branching of the story and reactions depending on the player's choices.
The game comes on 3 CD-ROMs and a novel.  


 Upon its release, Blackout was heavily praised by the Danish gaming critics for being "The first real auteur-adventure game" (referring to author and game designer Michael Valeur and his influence on the game). It also won the yearly multimedia award "Årets Thor", and has been included in Danish game canons by both Computerworld and Multimedieforeningen.
