The highly anticipated Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, the followup to Frictional Games’ original Amnesia: The Dark Descent, finally has an official launch date. After a few set backs and delays the team at The Chinese Room have set the release date for September 10.
Also pre-orders just opened up on Steam with a 20 percent discount from the $19.99 price that will be set at launch–meaning you can grab it now for $15. The game is being developed for PC, Mac and Linux so all can indulge in this game.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent was a game that prompted many players to put up what seemed like an unlimited amount of Let’s Play videos. The game was so scary some people would rather just watch than play for themselves. If Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is anything like its predecessor I’m sure people will be lining up to watch their friends get the life scared out of them.
Let’s all hope that the game will be worth the wait. I think considering two amazing teams collaborated on this one (The Chinese Room being the developer and Frictional Games producing); we will all be in for a good scare.
So if you are daring enough to play through yet another horrifying experience, pre-order today!
Tell me what you think about indie developers and their many delays! Do you think people are going to be hesitant about buying the game because of the push backs, or do you think allowing these developers time just makes the game better once it finally releases? Does consistency matter?
