This sort of interface is also used on other items (chairs, tables, vases, boxes, barrels..). The gameplay is set in 1849, and the storyline is that you have to run away from this thing called the Shadow which can kill you over time, and in order to do so you need to destroy Alexander, who has the orbs which are in charge of the Shadow chasing you. Amnesia: The Dark Descent can also be A:TDD for short. It has a sequel named Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
