Herbert's Lost Diary is a diary that was supposed to be found in the Control Room location from Amnesia: The Dark Descent but ends up removed from the final cut. Found in the super_secret.rar, found through "super_secret > design > herbert's lost diary", it is the diary of three pages Herbert kept while in Algeria. It was later sent back to London and gathered by Daniel.


17th May 1839Edit

Early afternoon. It has come to my attention that there has been an accident. Daniel, my research assistant, has been trapped inside the burial chamber. All men are ordered to lift the massive stone hinder.

Recovered Daniel after one hour of entrapment. After some preparation the workers hoisted the heavy stone with block and tackle.

Daniel is delirious and his mind is slowly recovering. I have decided to have him leave for England. It would be foolish of me to risk not just his life, but the expedition's success by keeping him here.

Those imbeciles. How dare they sacrifice my expedition to their superstition. The camp is in chaos and they blame the Orb. They won't get their hands on it. I shot one of them to put them in their place. It can't be helped, they are animals, all of them. They killed four men in the most gruesome way. Their skinless bodies torn apart. They say the desert took them, but I know murder when I see it. I have sent Abdullah to contact the French in Algiers.

That thing is after me. It has been hunting me for days. But I keep out of its trail, so I will persevere. I can see a settlement at the edge of the desert. I'm getting closer. I can see it. But it is not me, it is Abdullah. Through his eyes I see, his mind I hear. Confined to myself, I see only death dressed in the Orb's darkest shadow.
