Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is Done; Releasing Q2

Lets be honest; Amnesia: The Dark Descent scared the piss out of us all. FrictionalGames' epic tale crammed into a broken and cursed castle set in 1839 reinvigorated the survival horror genre. It was so damn spooky I couldn't even finish the game. I'll have to put on my big-boy pants soon because I want to play the sequel!

The sequel to the highly praised original was crafted by FrictionalGames and TheChineseRoom (who made Dear Esther; a great game in itself) is finally finished and ready for production.

With an update to their blog FrictionalGames explains their excitement for the title and the reasons behind why it missed a Halloween 2012 launch. Expect Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs to release Q2 2013.

In case you've been gaming under a rock here's the plot for A Machine for Pigs:

The focus of the story will be Oswald Mandus, a wealthy industrialist. Set in 1899, Mandus returns from a "disastrous" expedition to Mexico, where tragedy struck. Hit by fever, Mandus has frequent dreams about a dark machine until he regains consciousness. Little does he know that months have passed, and upon awakening, he hears the roar of an engine and a mysterious machine starts up.

The game will feature several real interlocking storylines. Some take place in the past, some in the present, and some are overtly real while some may be imagined.
