Summary: No, not a cute bicycle for a Miss Piggy-type character. This machine is far more grisly. Imagine the rotten-pig dismembering scene from the Saw movies. That’s the kind of machine the new Amnesia is evoking, if not directly.
Summary: Writing about horror-based games is always a challenge, as the enjoyment in playing them is often in the discovery of what it has in store, making it difficult to describe why those experiences are worthwhile.
Excerpt: I remember Amnesia: The Dark Descent coming out and playing it a bit saying to myself that it was truly an aptly-named game. When Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs came along, my first response was one of confusion as, let’s face it, that is a pretty strange name for a survival horror game.
Excerpt: From the moment you click ‘start game’, and a terrifying sound like a tortured soul screeching its way out of hell blasts from your speakers, it’s obvious that Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is going to batter you into a shivering, drooling wreck.
Pros: Truly horrific, Were serious there, It really is nasty
Excerpt: This world is a machine. A machine for pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs. Amnesia: The Dark Descent redefined horror gaming for me. I was immersed into a world where nowhere was safe, nobody could be trusted and every word was a potential lie.
Excerpt: Em 2010, ficou definitivamente provado que era possível fazerem-se jogos que, com verdadeira eficácia, conseguiam produzir valentes “cagaços” aos jogadores. Amnesia: The Dark Descent (ou ATDD) é o responsável por tal façanha.
Pros: Atmosfera verdadeiramente claustrofóbica, e sustos reais
Cons: Alguns puzzles que acabam por retirar algum ritmo à narrativa
