So you like sleep? Then you might want to just skip this post. The folks at The Chinese Room / Frictional Games have announced that Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs has shipped for digital platforms today. We’ve got our review of the game right here, but if you are still hiding in the closet from the last game, here’s a bit about your new nightmare-fuel:
The year is 1899. Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus has returned home from a disastrous expedition to Mexico. Wracked by fever, haunted by dreams of a dark machine, he recovers consciousness in his own bed with no idea of how much time has passed since his last memory. As he struggles to his feet, somewhere beneath him, an engine splutters, coughs, roars into life…
From the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Dear Esther comes a new first-person horror game that will drag you into the depths of greed, power and madness. It will bury its snout into your ribs and it will eat your heart. Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is survival–horror at its most unsettling; helpless and alone, no weapons to soothe your nerves, and only the dim light of your lantern to offer any comfort.
The game is only $19.99 and is available on Steam, GOG, Gamefly, GamersGate, Desura, and Mac Game Store, shipping for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
