Fans of the dark horror titles Dear Esther and Amnesia: The Dark Descent will be delighted (or should that be horrified?) to learn that the next game from developers The Chinese Room, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, will be finally released on September 10th.
A Machine for Pigs is a first person horror adventure game and will be available for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Interested parties can pre-order the game from GOG and Desura; it will cost $19.99 at launch, but pre-orders are discounted by 20 percent to $15.99.
The game has been delayed several times, but a press release from The Chinese Room has promised that come September we will finally be able to delve into the dark world inhabited by wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus. Mandus has returned home after a disastrous expedition to Mexico in 1899, and finds himself haunted by terrible dreams of a dark and terrifying machine. A nerve-shredding survival horror experience is promised, with no weapons whatsoever to sooth your nerves…
The Chinese Room is also working on an unannounced project, the details of which will be shared by them later this year. If past work is anything to go by however, expect it to be pretty grim. Meanwhile, we hope for a console announcement soon for A Machine for Pigs.
