I liked penumbra and amnesia the dark descent, but I think amnesia a machine for pigs wasn't as good. I don't know why but I think you were more focused on graphics and gameplay, because the monsters were slow and don't show up anymore. I could outrun them by walking! Thank you for your time.

Can any one over at Frictional look in to the problems with the sh.bz2 files?
They are too small and corrupt.
bunzip will not even extract it, it says the bz2 file is corrupt.

to everyone who says Amnesia should be free: the folks at frictional games spent countless hours making it so they deserve to be paid for making such a good game. trust me its worth the buy and i bet you guys can earn the 20 bucks it costs to buy it.

ikr, what do they think this is one of those generic boring horror games like all the slender games and stuff? This is actually a good, quality horror game worth the money.
