About

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is a first-person survival horror, an indirect sequel to 2010 title Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The gameplay is most parts identical to that of previous game and consist of exploring surroundings, solving puzzles, and avoiding monsters. Like in the previous game, your character is practically unable to confront monsters and has to hide from them to survive. However, there is no more sanity meter, and inventory in Machine for Pigs and puzzles are more physics-based than in The Dark Descent.
In Machine for Pigs, you play as Oswald Mandus, a first game protagonist’s descendant, and successful industrialist. He recovers after a fever which lasted for a few months after a disastrous expedition in Mexico. Not remembering anything about it, later he finds out that he build a mysterious machine in the basement of his mansion and his house is full of swine-like monsters. The player must restore Oswald’s lost memories and reveal the secret of the machine.

    Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs reviews and comments

    Translated by
    Microsoft from Deutsch
    I say in advance that A Machine for Pigs is by no means comparable to Dark Descent. The first Amnesia part has become known as a very good Horror Game because you often had to plan quite a bit how much oil you need, when to use the Tinder boxes and so on and immediately-because Daniel went crazy after some Time in the Dark or got Panic Attacks when Monsters were nearby. Also, at the first Part, puzzles had to be solved, which were a little more demanding, but in Return also restored his Sanity to the Protagonist. This wafting Sound paired with the soothing Music, once you have solved a Puzzle, I still sometimes connect with Amnesia first. A Machine for Pigs is there (as I said) something completely different: You can't light Candles or other Light Sources anymore, since you now have electrically powered Lamps that you can anchor. They rarely give off a lot of Light and glow greenery somehow, but that doesn't matter. You also now have an electrically powered lantern that never runs out of power and flickers at most a bit when it starts to get brittle and Opponents are nearby. You also have Puzzles to solve in the second Part, but they are much easier and since Oswald Mandus does not seem to be the same case of "Mental Case" as Daniel, he is not covered in the Darkness (I prefer to start the Lamp most Of the time. Because otherwise you wouldn't see the Hand in front of Your eyes). So the Puzzles don't give you back a mental Health Boost, either. Some Puzzles are a bit unwieldy and you run somewhere all too easily, as Oswald doesn't capture his Thoughts as orderly as Daniel does in his Journal. With some Entries, I didn't really know WHAT he was now GENAU was trying to do, which is why I just advised and then got to My Destination with Rumtry. :P It also takes a bit for a time to really encounter the Opponents, and much longer for them to really be recognizable as a Threat. Personally, the Horror in the first Part grabbed me more, but I would still recommend the Game. In spite of everything, it is Fun, even if it is no longer a real "Amnesia." The Only thing that makes you realize that this is part of this Series is the Fact that you have the well-known Journal and the Documents that you find in the Course of the Game and learn more about the Story. Also, it's pretty obvious that Mandus at least doesn't have the same Form of Amnesia as Daniel. Mandus clearly remembers what he did (in my Opinion). I would not classify this Game under Horror, but rather under Horror, but personally that is enough for me. What the Game offers me I find good and perfectly sufficient. Nevertheless, I will simply have to play the first Part again soon, because it is no Doubt that it will be better. :D
