Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs Wants Your Fear


The Halloween trailer for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is scary stuff, kiddies!

Here’s your happy thought for the day: “This world is a machine. A machine for pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs.” Sets a cheery tone, eh?

The new trailer for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is admittedly familiar, combining poor lighting, horrific noises and panicked breathing in a manner very similar to its predecessor, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. But why not? It works better than any spring-from-the-darkness monster closet, after all. Being startled is one thing, but actually being scared is something else entirely.

The bit about “we want your fear” isn’t just about thechineseroom’s lust for your weak-kneed tears, either. The team has invited fans to submit their “screams, whimpers and blood-curdling shrieks of terror” for possible use in the game. Just record your best efforts in WAV, OGG or MP3 format and email them to [email protected].

“We are on the hunt for the sounds of fear, panic, terror, anguish, torture and horrid, awful death to include in the soundtrack for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs,” the studio wrote. “We don’t care who does the screaming. We just want the fear.”

I don’t know if this has already been said or not, but the studio also confirmed that A Machine For Pigs will feature music by Jessica Curry, who did such wonderful things with thechineseroom’s previous project, Dear Esther. Samples of her work on that soundtrack and others can be found at

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is currently slated for released in early 2013.
