Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs has been on the radar for a few reasons. One, it’s a follow up to Frictional Games’ Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which is one of the few games to reduce me to a sniveling baby. Second, it’s being developed by thechineseroom, whose Dear Esther hit me right in the feels.
Any concern that thechineseroom’s more emotional style on Dear Esther would sully the guttural terror of Amnesia has been completely washed away by this new gameplay trailer from G4, which showcases the new steampunk-y environments, as well as the anus-clenching frights that Frictional has become notorious for.
In a unique twist, the developers are asking for those with a good set of lungs to submit their "sounds of fear, panic, terror, anguish, torture, and horrid awful death,” in WAV, MP3, or OGG format to firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion in the game. So bust out your microphones and start stepping on some LEGO to capture your most blood-curdling shriek, and maybe you’ll be immortalized.
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs will be out 2013.
