Penumbra is a survival horror video game series created by Frictional Games. The series started in 2006 as a tech demo for the HPL Engine (Penumbra), then a full fledged game that was released in 2008 to minor acclaim and a cult following. The series' horror elements and themes are influenced by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and its gameplay was partly inspired by survival horror titles of the day and partly by point-and-click adventure games.

The series currently consists of two main games, with an expansion for the second, in addition to the aforementioned tech demo.
