Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Review
By Glenn Rice |
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is an upcoming survival horror video game developed by thechineseroom and produced by Frictional Games. It is the follow-up to 2011?s Amnesia: the Dark Descent which was developed and produced by Frictional Games which is considered the scariest horror game ever released on the PC. It uses a HPL Engine 2 which is a really powerful engine well suited for the game. While set in the same universe as the previous game, it will feature an entirely new cast of characters and time setting.
The plot and the storyline set in 1899 is really interesting and gets a hold of the player. The focus of the story will be a wealthy industrialist, Oswald Mandus. Mandus returns from a "disastrous" expedition to Mexico, wherein a tragedy struck. Hit by fever, Mandus has frequent dreams about a dark machine until he regains consciousness. Little does he know that months have passed, and upon awakening, he hears the roar of an engine and a mysterious machine starts up.
Like the previous title, Amnesia: the Dark Descent, this one is also expected to have wonderful graphics, audio, controls, artificial intelligence and gameplay. It has been confirmed that some elements of The Dark Descent have been removed, while other, new elements have been added. One of the reasons for this is to provide a fresh gameplay experience. The development of the game started in December 2011 and is expected to be released before Halloween 2012.
