On Friday, The Chinese Room's and Frictional Games' much-anticipated horror game, "Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs" was confirmed for September 10, 2013. The Chinese Room confirmed that gamers have a little less than a month to stock up on nightlights and practice jumping over tiny little noises in your house.
"Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs" is the spiritual successor to Frictional Games' cult classic horror game, "Amnesia: The Dark Descent." This time, gamers play as wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus (not to be confused with Ozymandias), who wakes up with a fever and nightmares about a dark, mysterious machine.
From the artwork released, AMfP looks to contain not only the classic horror puzzle gameplay we expect, but also the dark, moody visuals and environments that made the first game so effective. But perhaps the best news is that The Chinese Room composer, Jessica Curry, will be composing the soundtrack. For proof of her amazingly effective sound, be sure to check out "Dear Esther's" soundtrack.
AMfP was originally scheduled for release last Halloween, but suffered a few delays. This is The Chinese Room's first collaboration with Frictional, and their first game since 2012's "Dear Esther." "Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs" will be available for both PC and Mac for $19.99. If you pre-order through GOG now, you can get 20% off. So, like, go do that.
If you've not yet played the original "Amnesia: The Dark Descent," you can pick it up through the next 6 days over on HumbleBundle for a mere $2.52. Best part? You're supporting clean drinking water ... but getting scared out of your mind. Win/win, really.
