Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs Gets a Release Window

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is held by many (including myself) as one of the scariest games of all time, and its pseudo-sequel, A Machine for Pigs, promises to deliver even more horrors. Though not quite a sequel, A Machine for Pigs is set in the same setting as its predecessor, and it’s currently in development at thechineseroom, which produced the haunting first person adventure game Dear Esther.

Frictional Games has announced today that they plan to release the A Machine for Pigs sometime in the second quarter of the year, between April and June.

“Some work is still left to be done. We are testing, tweaking, optimizing, porting, translating and all those things that are part of the process of creating and releasing a game,” they wrote on their official blog.

The studio described how the game originally started as a “short, experimental game” which has now become a “full fledged Amnesia game.”

“As their work progressed, the potential for a much greater project emerged. What we ended up with is no longer what we had first imagined, but a fully fledged Amnesia game. A different kind of Amnesia, but definitely not a short experiment.”

One of my most anticipated games in 2013. While I’m not sure if it will be scarier than The Dark Descent, it will definitely be worth at least one playthrough.
