Frictional Games has teamed with The Chinese Room, the studio behind the critically-lauded Dear Esther, to create Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, which takes place six decades after the events of the original game. The sequel follows Oswald Mandus, haunted by horrible fever and the nightmares of a disastrous expendition to Mexico. Below his house is a demonic engine that threatens the lives of he and his children, unless he can save them.
Like Dark Descent, players will endure a narrative-driven experience using an updated version of the HPL2 engine, for better visuals, design, audi effects and A.I. with low system requirements.
Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any new trailers for a while, but you can check out the creepy original teaser, chilling Halloween Teaser, screenshots and concept art all below. Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is also available for preorder on GOG.com and will be set to release to the PC and Mac when the game launches.
