Developer Thechineseroom has released a new batch of screenshots for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, the indirect sequel to Frictional Games’ The Dark Descent.
The images lack in horror content and are only meant to show off various environments from the game. Unlike ‘The Dark Descent’, the second installment in the Amnesia series looks to feature outdoor locations, which evidently will bring some change to the tone set by the first game.
It also has to be noted that the released shots were too dark for comfort. It’s unsure if the murky blackness was intended or not, either way it made it a bit hard to actually see the content. Thankfully Gamerant brightened the shots significantly and you can check them out below.
Details regarding the game are slim for now. The developers haven’t said much but we can assume a gameplay similar to that of Dark Descent. One thing we do know is that players will have to run and hide from enemies they encounter. The game will also feature puzzle solving and an eerie storyline.
The lead in ‘A Machine for Pigs’ is an industrialist named Oswald Mandus. Set 60 years after the events of Dark Descent, Mandus is troubled by nightmares involving a dark and mysterious machine. One day he wakes up to find his home occupied by pig-like monsters.
We are yet to see what these pig-like monsters look like. I’m hoping they seem more grotesque than cartoonish.
Frictional Games is only acting as publisher this time. Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is scheduled for release in Summers of 2013.
