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.

I didnt think it was scary but the story was so complex and intriguing and made me actually feel for the character. I am a little bit dissapointed that there is no custom strory support but overall the story had me wired in for hours. Great to buy for a complex story, not any puzzles so overall i enjoyed it (y)

A lot of people is bullshiting, hating this game because they just can´t understand that serious game companies do not want to copy/paste their games. aamfp is an amazing game, but since it´s developed by another game company, it´s obvious that the concept of ''what is horror'' is different for them.

The game IS NOT scarier than the first one, but it almost reaches there. IT´S AN AMAZING GAME, for sure a ''must play'' game! The Chinese Room did an wonderful game for sure!

A lot of people can say the same about you. You are bullshiting for liking the game. Everyone doesn't feel the same way, that's how it is. Some people like it, some dislikes it, like everything else in the world.

Ok, in this case you´re absolutely right. I´m bullshiting, but at least not the game. Because I know that it takes a lot of effort to make one. Everyone have the right to not like a game, like it happens with a lot of titles, but for serious, don´t say that something sucks when it doesn´t. Not liking a game, not being happy playing it and not enjoying a game is completely understandable, but hating something that was made precisely to make people enjoy and be happy/scared playing it? Ah come on! It´s unfair. The Chinese Room did a lot for their second game, I bet even the Frictional´s second game wasn´t as good as this one. Remember, Amnesia TDD is their fourth game. Amnesia AMFP is The Chinese Room´s second game. Think twice before ''bullshiting'' a game and ''hating'' something that doesn´t deserve this treatment :)

And yes, I respect your opinion of not liking the game. I don´t want to make a war, so I apologize if I offended you, I really didn´t wanted that. We´re both adults and we need to have a conversation like one.

Penumbra series was amazing! It was good as Amnesia The Dark Descent (Amnesia is only scarier than Penumbra), so Frictional's games are masterpiece. The Chinese Room made a boring walkthrough game with notes and Amnesia A Machine for pigs is second case. So I think Frictional games are much better than The Chinese room. I wouldn't have compare their games because Frictional games are much better. That is my opinion :)

IT´S ME BLASTERLIZARD replying, but i´m not logged in

I agree with you, but what I meant is that Frictional gave the chance for the chinese room to try something different. Think with me... Do you think that Frictional would make a good fps action shooter game? the answer is simple: NO. The Chinese Room is not focused on horror games, but at least they´ve tried. This is why I liked the game. When you´re not good on something, at least you should try to do your best and they did! The Chinese Room is not a company specialized in horror games, but for their first one, and their second project, the game was absolutely amazing. This is what most people do not understand. But I completely agree with you, compared to the first one, Amnesia AMFP is not that goooooooooood enough. But it still is an amazing game!

Thank you very much, this is what I am meaning. Frictional Games believed in the potential of The Chinese Room, they just gave a shot and threw everything in their hands. They did very well with the game.

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.
