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.

They removed some of my most favorite mechanics, the chase music, the oil and tinderboxes(which makes looking through cabinets useless), idiot monsters, very short game(unless your a puss and hide for an hour), very lack in scares, boring puzzles, some of things have the same textures, and stupid looking monsters.
This game was such a disappointment, and they removed custom stories :l. If you are thinking about buying this, stop right now, get Outlast instead.

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.

Outlast is a piece of ****. Overused and ****** jumpscares and the enemies are downright retarded. What the **** is so scary about a naked man with cleaver?

Outlast was a great game and it has that many jumpscares because that's what it's supposed to be! I finished it and I have to say I was really glad it came out, one of the best horror games so far. You can't even breath safely for one moment and you always must keep your eye on the battery and stop wasting it. The crazy doctor, I have to say, scared the cr*p out of me! His gigantic scissors which "clank clank" all the time really sent shivers down my spine, the music too. You should give it a try.

Oh well, I guess we all have our preferences in games.

By the way, I don't like cheap jumpscares either but I think they were put really good, when least expected.

I have 5 hours played and did my best to not skip anything and I beat it already. What a waste, don't buy this. Had it's scares but it's just lacking, no inventory, no refilling of oil, no loss of sanity ... which leads to lack of suspense

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.
