The swine will rise, in Frictional Games’ latest teaser for the Amnesia sequel.
Less is more in the latest teaser for Frictional Games’ upcoming Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, which will release on PC in January 2013. The mythos are there, the chilling narrative set in olden times remains but the air of sinister dealings never seems to fade. In this new teaser, the implications of horrors to come are just enough to set us on edge, never mind the presence of a being like the original game’ Shadow, lurking in every dark corner.
And kudos to developer thechineseroom (who worked on the enigmatic Dear Esther) for not revealing it’s exact nature. After all, why spoil the surprise? You’ll be carrying a lamp and navigating the darkness as usual, solving puzzles, cranking machines and exploring the overall mystery of this “machine for pigs”. But honestly, if the first game is any indication, it could be a mystery better left unsolved. Check out the newest teaser and remember, don’t look in the mirror and say, “Here piggy pig pig”. Just don’t.
