Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Available Today

Today Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs became available. Will the game compare well to its relative, Amnesia: The Dark Descent? Only time and reviews will tell. WARNING: Not for the squeamish.

Today is the day all Amnesia: The Dark Descent fans have been waiting for. We have a game with the same grotesque horror feeling made by the same developers, who are also famous for Dear Esther. We’ll be able to expect the same scary thrilling game we’ve come accustomed to with The Dark Descent, only A Machine for Pigs might have a twist upon it.

Spoilers ahead, beware!

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is centered around an industrialist named Oswald Mandus. He ventured just a bit too far in a Mexico expedition and returned home a bit more disturbed than when he left. Lucky enough, he recovers from the nightmares hes plagued with, unable to remember how much time has passed. Upon his recovery and slumber, he hears a machine below him come to life.

How similar is this to The Dark Descent?

This game is definitely very similar to our beloved horror, The Dark Descent. The darkness and light will equally become your enemy while you’re guided with a lantern… again. As always, you won’t have any weapons except your wits upon you, while traveling alone hoping to survive. The enemies are similar in the aspect that you can’t harm them, and that they look a bit deranged like in the first game.

Where can I play the game?

Today, you’re able to purchase Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs through many online stores including Steam, GOG, GamersGate, Gamefly, Desura, and the Mac Game Store. The game runs at $19.99 like The Dark Descent.

Only time will tell if this game can measure up to the horror games we’re used to from Frictional Games.
