Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs screens are dark as the hearts of puppy kickers

Sunday, 21st April 2013 23:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

You remember how important light was in Amnesia: The Dark Descent – or maybe you don’t because you sensibly dissociated and buried the memories forever. It looks like light’s going to play a major rolle in followup Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, too, if these almost unbelievably dark screenshots are anything to go by.

What’s happening in these screens? Where are we? Can I turn the brightness up on my monitor, please?

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was developed by thechineseroom, the Dan Pinchbeck-led team behind Dear Esther. However, just like its Frictional Games-developer precursor, it looks absolutely god damned terrifying. It’s largely finished, and expected sometime this quarter on Mac and PC; I’m already crying and huddling under the blankets, just to save time.

Thanks, Bloody Disgusting.

    Good thing its pc only ~ i don’t think they would get away with this level of darkness with console gamers sitting a mile away from the screen on a sofa

    @1 – Actually, being quite near sighted, I sit about three feet from my screen.

    “A Machine For Pigs” makes me think of about five Nine Inch Nails songs.
