GOG announces that Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, the “spiritual follow-up” to Amnesia: The Dark Descent will be leaping out on 10 September to scare the pants off most who play it. The same site has a concurrent pre-order offer where you can save $4.00 USD on the $20.00 USD asking price.
Expect much the same first-person set up as in the first Amnesia, plus plenty of oppressive and disturbing ambiance. This one is being made by Dear Esther devs The Chinese Room, with Frictional Games (makers of the first Amnesia) on publishing duties. Level design will feature larger outdoor areas than those found in The Dark Descent.
You play as wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus, who’s just come back from a rubbish trip to Mexico where you picked up a debilitating fever. Strange visions of a terrible machine clouds your dreams, and upon awaking you find that months have passed. It is now New Years Eve in London, 1899.
This trailer was from last Halloween, but appears to be the most recent one around.Related to this article
