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.

Ok i'm gonna say this. I Really don't know why fans are so butthurt, SO MANY ******* COMPLAINTS OVER THE MOST IRRELEVANT THINGS! People expected it to be exactly like the dark descent, They obviously didnt know diddly jack about the game. The Dark Descent was a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT GAME. It really just ****** me off how people diss it so much for NO RELEVANT REASON... The game is in my opinion better than the original. after encountering the Grunt and the brute i wasn't scared at all. the story of ATDD didn't make sense or very much barely reveal what the **** happened. Pigs's Enemies are visually disturibing, Every time i saw a wretch i was nearly paralized by fear. i nearly jumped out of my chair during the first encounter.

Kind sir, I agree the game was good and the atmosphere really intense but some things didn't appeal to us such as: the chasing music, the oil, tinderboxes, laudanum and sanity potions, hiding in the closets and that the only items you can pick up are scraps of papers. People are most irritated by the fact that "Amnesia" appers in the title when it was not like the first one at all. It should have been only "A machine for pigs" cause if it has that word in it, they feel the need to compare it with the first one which was by far one of the greatest horror games I've ever played. This game is an entirely different thing ... All I say is that: it could have been better!

take the GTA Series as an example. none of the games has anything in common except for places and vehicle and etc etc.
WHY DO PEOPLE SAY THERE ISN'T CHASE MUSIC! THERE IS! In the ******* music folder under NPC!

It may be ... but I played it with volume at max, headphones and I barely heard it. I just heard the moanings of a pig and that's pretty much it. The chase was ...like a stroll in the park.

Maybe Oswald was breathing too heavy. I didn't hear it. I looked in the folder and it was there. I think it bugged.

Don't get outlast instead.Get both games.Outlast is a jumpscare fest.Amnesia builds the creepy atmosphere through the whole game.True, it's is a little less scary than TDD, but it's still very scary.It's better without ''idiot mosters'' because the newer ones follow you everywhere.They don't quit like the older ones.The monsters weren't stupid looking.They were ugly as hell and you get the creeps if you think that something ugly and dangerous follows you through the whole game.And the story is a masterpiece.Also are the puzzles.

Not true at all. The oil and tinderboxes did add a more exploratory feature but took away from the main aspects. And it was a pain to always worry about them. The puzzles were great! especially the one with chemical X, if you read, compared to Dark descent these puzzles are amazing. You cant over use scares in a game you have to pace it, it was perfect. the only reused textures were props. so ******* what. And the monsters are much scarier than in outlast. in Outlast there normal ******* people, who don't even look scary. Outlast has an automatic hiding feature with lockers that ruins the panic. Outlast is good, but Everything you said was ********. And i agree with custom stories. But people will be able to convert the files over and mod.

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.
