The Swine are Rising!

In 2010 Frictional Games terrified the world with the cult horror Amnesia: A Dark Descent. Now they bring you a new nightmare. Created by The Chinese Room, the studio behind Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is an intense and terrifying journey into the heart of darkness that lurks within us all.

The year is 1899.

Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, wracked with fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by visions of a disastrous expedition to Mexico, broken on the failing dreams of an industrial utopia, wracked with guilt and tropical disease, he wakes into a nightmare. The house is silent, the ground beneath him shaking at the will of some infernal machine: all he knows is that his children are in grave peril, and it is up to him to save them.

Step back into the horror.

Amnesia TDD had me stuck and it took rather more day to finish then it should have been but I feel like Amnesia AMFP was just as scary as the first, hell I screamed more then I did for the first.

This isn't my complete review, this is only my review of what I think so far:

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is an amazing game, I truly like the emptiness of the entire environment that knows to give me the chills. Hell, the scares were amazing. These scares actually made me have a mini heart attack. The monsters are really creepy and they actually sound inhuman.

But then the removal of Inventory and Custom Stories was a huge downfall. How does my lantern stay up forever like that? You could've added 'batteries' or [insert random power item here], that would've worked. And the Inventory didn't do ANYTHING to you, you shouldn't have removed it. And I can't even move ANY random object, it makes me miss grabbing the knife on the table and going all "WHO DARES GO NEAR ME?" to the grunts.

That's my review so far. I'll post the REAL review after the completion.

That's not what a publisher does... usually there's nothing a publisher can do about that. They put the product out there and helped fund it, they did a fine job with quality control by pushing the release date back this much (so the game isn't very buggy). When it comes to game design, usually they provide feedback and suggestions but nothing more. There are exceptions of course, such as horrible deals with EA that forces devs to put in multiplayer, but clearly Frictional Games isn't like that.

At the end of the day the game is made by thechineseroom. If you want to blame Frictional Games for something, I guess blame them for giving the green light in the first place? Which allowed A Machine for Pigs to be called Amnesia, making everyone have the wrong expectations.

Its not just the title that is the issue.. the trailer made the game seem like it was going to be scary. The end result as very very disappointing in this regard, they knew what they where doing to bring people in. The game doesn't even have some of the scares that are in the trailer. What we got was basically a interactive story with a tense atmosphere, not a horror title nor a amnesia title.
