The year is 1899. Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, wracked with fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by visions of a disastrous expedition to Mexico, broken on the failing dreams of an industrial utopia, wracked with guilt and tropical disease, he wakes into a nightmare. The house is silent, the ground beneath him shaking at the will of some infernal machine: all he knows is that his children are in grave peril, and it is up to him to save them.

Step back into the horror. Like The Dark Descent, this is a game driven by its story, exploration of the world and the constant fear of the unknown. You can expect classic Amnesia gameplay, physics interaction and the signature blend of high-end gaming with low system requirements.

Think you understand fear? Think again. A Machine for Pigs takes both the world of Amnesia and the technology of The Dark Descent to new heights of horror. Built using an updated version of HPL2 engine, the game features stunning visual and environment design, incredible music and audio effects and adapted artificial intelligence. These are all driven by a gut-wrenching, blood-curdling new story, set sixty years after the events of the original game.

The Chinese Room are excellent story-tellers and are adept at creating immersive environments and tying it together with great ambiance and music. However, the Gameplay was somewhat lacking as seems to be the general consensus. I look forward to future releases!

Could you please release a mod which adds the features from the first game?

You can't make mods for this game. Although people are making machine for pig mods for the original Amnesia. If someone could port over the maps and features from this game to TDD, then it would be possible to do that.

Amnesia TDD had me stuck and it took rather more day to finish then it should have been but I feel like Amnesia AMFP was just as scary as the first, hell I screamed more then I did for the first.

Highest Rated (5 agree) 7/10

I enjoyed this game quite a lot. I personally think that handing this to thechineseroom was not too much of the greatest idea, rather, Frictional Games should have done all the work, ALL, and they should have said NO DON'T DO THAT! AND THAT! BAD BAD! Removing elements (Yes I'M GONNA BRAG ABOUT IT BALHBVALH, I'LL TELL YOU WHY:) such as the sanity was something TDD was special for, because it created tension, and so did running out of oil, and what the hell am I gonna do with my life after it depletes…

Lowest Rated (10 agree) 4/10

Compared to Amnesia: The Dark Descent I can only give 4 out of 10 points because it is not as scary and I miss the looting for laudanum and oil and the influence of the sanity. Also I miss the fear of running out of oil or walking in the dark.

First passage from a really early Amnesia design doc:

Fun facts: The protagonist of Amnesia: TDD was once named Folke and a "cat" monster was in the design.

Is Silent Hill 1 or 2 best? @ThomasGrip (from FG) and @adrianchm (from @TheAstroCrew) argues about just that:

@J23PR This is our intent! But since release date is not 100% set yet, cannot promise, but will try our best for this to be the case.

Mar 21 2015, 4:16pm

@DarrelNorris It's mostly people close to us. Friends, other devs, etc.

Mar 13 2015, 7:13pm

@ColinPearceUK Polish, polish, polish, bug fixing and then release :)

Mar 13 2015, 7:34am

If all goes well, our (private) beta will be done in 4 weeks. Exciting & scary. Feels like we are really closing in on final release!

Mar 13 2015, 6:19am

@TheGreatHanster Great stuff! We love being able to inspire all things nightmarish! :)

Mar 6 2015, 2:42pm

@ProphetsAwaken Exciting indeed! This time we are putting a lot more focus on making sure modding is smoother and more powerful too!

Mar 1 2015, 6:10pm

Gotta say, we feel extremely proud to have a modding community that have managed to produce so many amazing and crazy things over the years.
