"This world is a machine. A machine for pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs," says a new trailer for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, surely one of the eeriest names in horror games. Come celebrate Halloween with a peek at some of the things that'll terrify you next year, won't you?

The semi-sequel to Frictional's Amnesia: The Dark Descent is made in collaboration with Dear Esther developer thechineseroom, visiting an awful Victorian-esque world filled with horrible, horrible machinery and terrible, terrible swine.

It's due on PC in 2013. Hit the official site for more information.

      I don't think they need to add the audio in for the character in the game to sound exasperated and terrified. My own fear and increased heart rate will be enough. That was some amazing audio work.

        I agree 100%, yet I feel like we may be in the minority looking at the Youtube videos of people freaking out playing Amnesia.

        After many friends raved about it, I finally took the plunge. There wasn't a single scary moment in the entire game to me.
        Why? Because my in-game character has a bad heart and starts getting winded looking at a Goddamned brick wall!

        "Forced fear" just makes things annoying and cheesier; all the best horror devs/movie houses know to let the fear/angst build in the player's mind. Our own minds determine what will be "scary". Heavy breathing and a loud heartbeat just make me horny.

        Amnesia: Sounds of Heavy Petting would have been a better title.

          I think you missed classicfork's point.

      I'm a bit disappointed. I had hoped that with the collaboration with Thechineseroom, this sequel was going to look a lot better but it looks exactly like Amnesia 1 to me.

        The areas in the trailer actually did look a bit better to me, but I'm far more interested in what Thechineseroom can do with the atmosphere and narrative.

      Is it a plot sequel? Or just a new story by the same devs / writers?

      I'll buy this for sure but please, no stock sound effects in horror/moody games. I don't want to go "lol that's a wyvern from WarCraft 3" when I'm playing.
