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 in collaboration with The Chinese Room, the studio behind Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is an intense and terrifying journey into the heart of darknessthat lurks within us all.

The year is 1899
Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, wracked with fever and haunted by dreamsof a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by visions of a disastrous expedition to Mexico, broken on thefailing dreams of an industrial utopia, wracked with guilt and tropical disease, he wakes into anightmare. 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
Like The Dark Descent, this is a game driven by its story, exploration of the world and the constantfear of the unknown. You can expect classic Amnesia gameplay, physics interaction and thesignature blend of high-end gaming with low system requirements.

Think you understand fear? Think again.
A Machine for Pigs takes both the world of Amnesia and the technology of The Dark Descent to newheights of horror. Built using an updated version of HPL2 engine, the game features stunning visualand environment design, incredible music and audio effects and adapted artificial intelligence. Theseare all driven by a gut-wrenching, blood-curdling new story, set sixty years after the events of theoriginal game.
