Amnesia: Machine For Pigs Teaser Trailer

PC News Previews Videos Horror Indie

The follow-up to Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a game we can only assume is so terrifying they had to give it a ridiculous name to take the edge off: Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs. Frictional Games are again behind it, but they’ve also brought in indie studio thechineseroom, the team behind the quietly moving Dear Esther.

I loved the first game, despite not being able to finish it. Not because it was particularly challenging, but because it was so stressful to play. That sounds like a bad thing, but I love the fact that a game can invoke such strong feelings – even “negative” ones – in a player. There’s a thick air of tension over the whole experience, which sticks closer to true survival horror than any other game that dares label itself as such.

The teaser trailer below shows A Machine For Pigs will feature the same mind-destroying scares: the disturbing last scene is reminiscent of much of the first game, which I’m still recovering from.

Gaming since the days of Lemmings and Wolfenstein, and writing since Scamper the mouse in Grade Three.
