Über das Spiel

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs soll nicht direkt ein Sequel sein, sondern spielt nur im selben Universum mit einem anderen Charakter. Bevor wir keine konkreten Infos haben, soll dieses Zitat erst einmal genügen:

Set in 1899, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs follows the "wealthy industrialist" Oswald Mandus, who has returned home from "a disastrous expedition to Mexico, which has ended in tragedy." Struck by a destructive fever, Mandus is haunted by dreams of a dark machine until he mysteriously regains consciousness. Months have passed, unbeknownst to the industry tycoon, and as he emerges from his slumber the roaring engine of a mysterious machine sputters to life.

Diese Welt ist eine Maschine. Eine Maschine für Schweine. Eine Maschine, die nur fürs Schweineschlachten gut ist.

Dieses Mal haben die Entwickler von Amnesia: The Dark Descent und Dear Esther ein Ego- Horrorspiel für Sie entwickelt, das Sie erbarmungslos in die Abgründe von Gier, Macht und Wahnsinn hineinzieht. Es wird seine Schnauze in Ihre Rippen bohren ... und es wird Ihr Herz fressen!

Wir schreiben das Jahr 1899

Vom Fieber und Träumen über eine obskure, höllische Maschine geschüttelt, erwacht der wohlhabende Unternehmer Oswald Mandus in seinem Bett ... doch er erwacht in einem Albtraum von Realität, gemartert von Traumbildern einer desaströsen Expedition nach Mexiko, gebrochen durch die platzenden Träume einer industriellen Utopie und gepeinigt durch Schuld und eine Tropenkrankheit. Im Haus ist es still, aber der Boden unter ihm vibriert nach dem Willen einer teuflischen Maschine. Sicher weiß er nur, dass seine Kinder in Todesgefahr sind ... und dass nur er sie retten kann.

  • Neues Herangehen an die Amnesia-Welt, wobei aber deren Wurzeln nicht in Vergessenheit geraten.
  • Die finsterste und grausigste Geschichte, die jemals Gegenstand eines Computerspiels war.
  • Überwältigender Soundtrack der preisgekrönten Komponistin Jessica Curry.

A really boring sequel. Aesthetic remains the same, but the gameplay is less challenging. There is almost nothing to do really aside from follow the main path which makes it one of the most by-the-books linear experiences I've had. 4/10

A good game to get on a sale.
There are some interesting moments and the story is overall very well done. However, gameplay leaves a lot to be desired as there are barely any mechanics and puzzles are brain dead simple. Monsters are also not very scary at all, but the locations are interesting. It also only took me 2.8 hours to beat which is way shorter than I thought it would be. I wasn't rushing either, just playing the game and that's all it took to beat it. Overall, I'd give it a 6/10. It's a hard one to rate as the story is really cool, but the gameplay is just not exciting and it feels like the game could have been so much more.

I can't recommend this game, it's underwhelming even without comparing it to the dark descent. The game is extremely linear and gets boring fast. Just move from point A to B. The environments are designed nicely but there is no sense of threat, lacking physiological horror, not enough freedom and no player sanity. It really ruined the immersion. What's worse is they got rid of the inventory so you get unlimited lantern lighting. It's also lacking massively in impressive mechanics. Slight spoiler but there was absolutely no threat until after playing for an hour and a half. Monster encounters are VERY rare and they aren't scary or challenging at all. The story is also poorly told as the notes you find have this shitty font you can't even read and there's no voice acting for it. I get the theme they were going for but they didn't pull it off right. Just play the dark descent and avoid this one. I hope frictional games develop their own games from now on because letting others develop an amnesia title doesn't work out at all.

One of the most critically underrated horror games of the decade. No, it wasn't a true sequel to Amnesia: A Dark Decent. It was it's own game it it's own right, and it managed to make an astonishingly complex and terrifying game. The game is short, but atmospheric and frankly amazing.

I do not recommend this game. It is not terrible, but I would recommend moving towards other horror games that are simply better.
My problems with the game are:
- Controls clunky and unresponsive
- Story overall boring and mostly told through text pieces
- Not much horror in general (compared to predeccessor less scary settings and less scary monsters)
- Graphics washed out and very foggy
There's not much positive to say about this game. The music adds very well to the atmosphere, the idea of the story is good. And going through the maps with the location plan on the walls is cool.
However, I cannot recommend the game. There are simply much better horror games. Depending on your preference, you could check out Alan Wake (story), Evil Within/RE 2 + 7 (action), Alien Isolation/Outlast (stealth). Outlast is probably the most comparable since you mostly hide from enemies.

It's okay. Typical crashes which set back progress, I get this in all Frictional games. Constant FPS drops tied to some sort of lagging, tried the fixes suggested on Frictional's forum but they didn't work. Same with the screen displaying out-of-bounds over the max (built in) resolution, however this is an easy fix by passing scaling to the game.

I like the game-play and atmosphere, but the flickering light mechanic was picked up right away, so not even the enemies catch me off guard. Hardly anything to interact with, and the puzzles are a little simple. Graphics are quite nice to look at compared to their older titles, I put them somewhere between PBPE and Soma.

This game is nowhere near the level 'The Dark Descent' was on, since sanity is gone, oil and tinderboxes, gone. They've basically made it into a walking simulator where you can occasionally hold things.

I hope Amnesia Rebirth is better than this one, Frictional. I still recommend this one though, at a lower price. It's a shame as the atmosphere in this title is brilliant.

This game may as well be on rails, it was the most linear game in history. You are guided though the entire game with walls on ether side of you with only one direction to go. The enemies in the game are worthless and do not pose a treat at all. The story is lame to say the least. It's a shame because the first Amneisa game is so good. The only thing this game shares with it's predecessor is it's name. Everything is stripped away, no more inventory, no sanity meter, no more puzzles that actually require brain power, all that is required of you is to flip a switch here and there. They even took away lamp oil management, and instead give you unlimited oil in case the game wasn't already easy enough. This game is a hard pass, even for the $2 I spent on it.

Not scary at all, unless you have Swinophobia.

In which case, take salvia and lock yourself in a small room along with some pigs and a jigsaw puzzle.

3/10, only play if you think The Dark Descent was fine, but needed more pigs.

I played it once many years ago and I despised it for not being up to standards with the original Amnesia: No inventory, very few encounters with dumb enemies, the lantern has infinite oil and there's no need to avoid the darkness or staring at the pigmen. Still, even back then I appreciated the story they were telling, and both the ambientation and the soundtrack are very effective at conveying the mood.
Now, seven years later, I can safely say that my feelings are the exact same. I'm still disappointed of how better it could be and how short it is but I again found myself fully immersed in the world Chinese Room built.

I can't recommend it as an Amnesia game but I certainly can as a more entertaining, very absorbing walking simulator.

Where Amnesia: The Dark Descent used the general atmosphere to build up the spookiness, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs really didn't do so. In fact, this game changed the most important bits which made Amnesia: TDD so scary: your lamp is infinite, so there's no constant anxiety about losing sanity or lighting (new) areas to check for monsters.

The amount of objects the player can somehow interact with are practically nonexistent as there are no more canisters of lamp oil or tinderboxes in the game. If you can interact with something, there's always a reason for it (usually a note), which honestly makes it boring to explore.
The levels/dungeons in Amnesia: TDD were well-thought out and you had to do some thinking to figure out what was needed and where with the help of some notes and such. In Amnesia AMfP, this is really not the case. It's all very straightforward - no revisiting areas, no actual puzzles to speak of, just walking walking walking.

The monsters itself are honestly pretty boring - walking set paths, grunting, and glitching through the player sometimes. There are 3 types of monsters, but most of the encounters are purely visual - no tension whatsoever. You only encounter the nonstandard type of monster once, maybe twice, which also didn't really help making the game scary. Hiding from them is also pretty easy but I've never really felt the need to do so. It's entirely possible to run through the whole game and not die.

The lore in the game feels honestly VERY pretentious. Some vague letters, some conversations on a gramophone, conversations with the entity through the telephone, it's all so very vague and ambiguous. I've tried looking up plot summaries online, which helped a bit, but it all feels so very 'enlightened', so r/iamverysmart.

This game is honestly also too short for it to be worth 20 euros. The 4ish hours I've played were enough for me to fully complete the game, achievements and all, and I don't think I'll ever start this game up again. Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, or, more honestly, Pretentious Walking Simulator with Piggies.

Story isn't as engaging as The Dark Descent, but it still has the same spirit. Personally, I didn't really like the steampunk aesthetic, or the pig-monsters, but I can acknowledge that the developers made good use of them, even if they started to feel a bit stale towards the end. Overall the game is still very good, not as amazing as The Dark Descent, but it didn't need to be. This game is good enough for our attention.

A considerable amount of Frictional Games fans don't like this game, but I liked Dear Esther and it might not surprise you that I enjoyed A Machine for Pigs as well. Now, it's instantly clear this game is a lot different from what we are used to, but even if this is more of a walking simulator than its predecessor or the Penumbra series, it's still certainly a fine game for its price. I'd probably rather play Dear Esther though.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a brilliant game. It was back then, and still is. The game defined a genre.
This one... it looks like Amnesia, and sometimes feels like Amnesia, but in its core, it's not.
It has its moments, but most of the game consists of running around from one place to another pulling levers and valves. And fuses. And then more valves. And more valves and valves and valves.
Even the main character makes a remark about this at one point. I guess even the devs understood that it was too much.
The story isn't bad, but it's very predictable. Without going into spoilers, it doesn't divert much from The Dark Descent.
Monsters are crude and slow, it's easy to outrun most of them. They add nothing new or scary to the game.
It's not a horrible game. Again, it has its moments, but it's not an Amnesia game.

Minecraft scares me more than Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, buuuut its story is fantastic! The world is beautifully constructed and the game's ambiance is top notch, it may not be an horror game like the original Amnesia, but i'm in love with it! Buy it if it's on sale, but have in mind that you'll play an adventure-thriller game, not an horror one.

A Machine for Pigs takes Amnesia's formula and shows us how to screw it up. The idea had huge potential, but it's squandered on what frankly is a cheap and uninvolving game. This was an extremely disappointing experience in terms of gameplay and mechanics, the story and soundtrack however are brilliant, I'd only suggest grabbing this title on sale

It's a good game with great story during victorian era (1899) and i like concept design so much. Environment, sound design, dialogues are great. The only bad thing is that gameplay and optimization is really bad. In gameplay the game is worse than Amnesia The Dark Descent. In Machine for Pigs there is no sanity, inventory, oils etc. Let's say it's more like a walking simulator and it's way too less scarier than Amnesia 1.
This game is never worth $20, maybe max $5. It's really short game (about 3 hours).

An underrated game. The gameplay is simplier and more of a walking simulator than Amnesia: The Dark Descent. However, the story is so much better and the atmosphere is fantastic. It is easier and less scary than the first but this is not necessarily a flaw, allowing a wider audience to be able to appreciate it and its terrific story.

This game isnt good.

Lets get the positives out of the way, the voice acting is good, the aesthetics are good.

Alright, with that out of the way, lets get into the bad. Everything you liked about Amnesia the Dark Descent is now gone. Exploration is now gone, youll be walking in a straight line. Puzzles, gone. Inventory, gone. Lamp oil, gone. Sanity meter, hone. Health meter, gone. This game takes literally every mechanic out of Amnesia, theres one (maybe two) enemies and they arent that good. The puzzles arent very good either. This game pretty much has nothing going for it. The story is very poor and it all feels very not great. Lack of motivation, lack of character development, nothing really makes sense and by the end of the game I had just given up reading notes because they were all just absolute nonsense written with really fancy words. Entire run-on sentences for paragraphs and paragraphs that mean absolutely nothing. Its a real shame.

I absolutely do not recommend, at all.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs attempts to build on its predecessor Amnesia: The Dark Descent, an iconic survival horror title. However, it fails to meet the brand-name expectations set by the first game.

This game fails to deliver the high-intensity, panic-inducing fear and horror that Amnesia: The Dark Descent so expertly encapsulates. Instead, the mechanics and systems in this game require no resource management: health regenerates (quite rapidly so), you possess a lantern-like light source that can run indefinitely, and your sanity does not degrade. The world is largely non-interactive, with the exception of doors and items required to solve simple puzzles. Enemies do not offer much in terms of fear or the threat of killing you, as you can outrun them easily. Unfortunately, the element of fear depends on cheap flash-frames and similar jumpscares, with limited capacity. Lastly, game progression is extremely linear and thus limiting.

There are redeeming qualities to this game. The plot & story (while gradually unveiled through cumbersome and poorly written notes) are per se interesting and profound, dwelling on subjects of mental illness, morality & ethics, guilt and redemption. In that sense, Amnesia:A Machine for Pigs draws a parallel line to Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The music pieces are also excellent and beautiful, contrary to the poor in-game sound effects and ambient audio. These elements take the player on an interesting ride requiring a relatively short gameplay time.

In a nutshell, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs tells a tale narrated through an interactive video-game linear walkthrough. Sadly, it doesn't work; the story would have better been projected through an actual movie. This sequel also falls victim to impossible standards set by its predecessor, disappointing the player when falling short from meeting them. It would have been fine if the game was not branded with the Amnesia title.

Would only recommend upon massive sale discount.

1. Graphics 9/10 (Amnesia has become the most relevant game in the horror and storytelling category. Influenced by the Lovecraft literature , Amnesia is a game of a story about what is unaccountable and unspeakable. Well developed story, setting from the time of the industrial revolution. Everything revolves around the supremacy of machines and pigs, similar to Brecht's literature and Lang's film 'Metropolis '. Well personalized characters that unfold in a dark, perverse and malevolent atmosphere. At the end of the story, demonic architecture can be seen in the dark, similar to Moloch from the movie Metropolis.)

2. Playability 8/10 (Honestly, I thought it was the first part of the game. But I saw the previous Amnesia game and the developers have removed a lot of important story and character elements. The controls are basic. But the inventory has been removed; the signal of sanity and health, removed. [spoiler]Do not you stay mad by the darkness, nor need tinder to recover sanity![/spoiler] The game has the essence of uncertainty and horror, but it seems that the game is only moving forward and going through narrow places. The game is easy because you always wander around.)

3. Music and FX 8/10 (The Amnesia game has been put forward by the soundtrack. Nor will complex music be expected, quite the opposite. An ambient or atmospheric music that generates tension and suspense. With some sounds of cello, double bass and synthesizers I, all with serious tone. Although the music of tension is lost. When an enemy is chasing you, the music is often low or absent.)

4. Duration 7/10 (The game is quite short. Without forgetting that all the time we are in the situation of only moving forward and wandering around. Escape the spectrum of the pig and nothing else.)

[h1] Recommendation: 8/10 [/h1]

Well, Amnesia A Machine for Pigs, one of the most controversial horror games of all time. I... Actually like this game... Of course, I agree with a lot of the complaints about this game. It's much more like a walking simulator than the first one, here the interaction with the world got significantly cut (I don't know the reason for that) and the encounters with the monsters are VERY few and easy to escape and avoid, there's not that dinamic you had in the first game that you had to REALLY hide because a monster was in your way. Here, you can just hide and go around it and done, you escaped them! That makes the gameplay far less scarier than it could've been, and most of the chases and frenetic moments are scripted and all you gotta do is run until the game closes the door behind you so you can be saved. I didn't die A SINGLE TIME because of that. That's a choice that me and lots of other players didn't enjoy.

But I guess this was intentional. You see, the previous Chinese Room games (since this was only published by Frictional Games) were Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to The Rapture are basically like that. Story focused, and you just walk around, solving the mysteries around the world you're in. And that's basically what Amnesia A Machine for Pigs is, a story focused game where you walk around a lot, solve puzzles, find out about the deeper details about the plot and escape from some enemies. And I don't find that bad at all. The story from Amnesia A Machine for Pigs is great, but not as convincing and mainstream like from the first one. It has some really disturbing plot points and a much more thoughtful and philosophyc way of showing you the point of it all. A real psychological horror about morality and the society we live in. In that way, this game is amazing and tells a great, creepy, disturbing, smart and sad story.
That together with the atmosphere, the ambience, the fucking amazing soundtrack, the sound design and (some) of the level design is worth for a hell of an experience, a ride into the unknown bits of the human mind, and what it is capable of doing to survive in a rotten world that is sinking into shit, just like the pigs in the being raised for the slaughter. In that case, I recommend the game. But if you're looking for something like the first Amnesia, stay away from it, you're only going to get frustrated.

A big dissapointment here. Despite being a horror game, the game isn't scary at all. Especially, when the the player is constantly notified by his lamp about all the dangers/scares nearby. This ruins all the tension/atmosphere and makes the gameplay really boring and rather easy to predict. Therefore, I would rather call it a walking similator with a few puzzles, a spooky (not scary) adventure game wrapped in a story, which is concluded with a more/less obvious life-lesson.

The game itself is just ugly. Maybe the models encountered in the enviroment are fine, but the color palette almost threw me into a depression, rather than made spooky impression. Yuck. Music is fine, but there are some problems with locating sound sources on your stereo headphones - you never know which direction do certain sounds come from, which makes certain fragments (with enemies) really annoying.

I finished it, because I was curious, but I won't play it again for sure.

Also, the game has some performance issues, but those can be solved by manually altering the configuration files.

If this game were simply titled 'A Machine For Pigs' - without Amnesia's moniker overshadowing it, it would no doubt be seen as a pretty cookie-cutter yet enjoyable Chinese Room title. That said, it isn't, and it does, so that means people are right to judge this for what it is. This is a Walking Simulator with extremely light puzzles and laughably basic, easy-to-overcome hide-and-seek mechanics. You won't be scared. If you don't like walking simulators, you won't enjoy yourself. That'll turn many people off, and that's okay.

That said - if you are already familiar with The Chinese Room and what their work offers, you may really like this story. It's well-presented for the most part, and the writing is fairly strong compared to a lot of 'horror' experiences out there. I even think this story is better (as in more complex, horrifying and relevant to our world) than the story in Dark Descent, even if that was a better game in every respect. I think people who overlook this completely really rob themselves of a profoundly dark tale, carefully penned by Dan Pinchbeck and beautifully scored by Jessica Curry.

My advice would be that if you have a slight interest in this game, you should play other titles from The Chinese Room first, at the very least Dear Esther. Pretend it's not the second entry in the Amnesia series and just take it for what it is. Only play this for the story, and pay attention to it. Then it might stick around in your mind as it has mine.

Mandus wakes up and his children are gone. He must save them from the machinery he created.
But what machinery is this? And what are It's consequences?

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is in my mind a brilliant horror game, but It's not as scary as Dark Decent and that's all right. It's a game with a good story about a man creating madness Itself.

The AI in this game is pure and simply stupid. But do you know what? I couldn't give a less damn about it. The story itself is enough for a game like this. It has at times some interactive parts but the story is where this game shines the most. The architecture, the horrific environments and the creepy atmosphere creates a really great experience. Yes, i would love some more complex puzzles, but what we got here is enough.

This game really got bad reviews i think because people where looking at the first game in the series and comparing it instead of letting it stand on it own legs and judge it by that. And if you look at it that way this is truly a great game in my opinion.

Don't expect Amnesia: The dark descent. Expect something different. It's a very gory tale, and i love it for it.

Game is amazing as expected. The story is quite nice, include that with the very atmospheric environment. Not much jumpscares or scary moments compared to The Dark Descent, but it still has the core elements of what makes an Amnesia game. Definitely recommend anyone who wants to play a story-driven horror game!

This game is not as good as its predecessor, the fear factor was such a downgrade, its not that even scary to be completely honest, but the narrative is still amazing.
