Please Think Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs Will Be "Nice And Mellow", Says Frictional Games

Posted on Tuesday, February 28 @ 13:38:30 Eastern by

Rumors have been surfacing that the sequel to the awesome (truly) survival horror game Amnesia: The Dark Descent will not be as bone-chillingly scary so that more people can play through it without curling into the corner in the fetal position. Redditor G00SEtav claims that he sent a response to Frictional Games, hoping that this wasn't the case for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs:
I know you are busy so I will be succinct. I heard you are making "Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs" less scary. I beg you not to do this. Amnesia was successful because it was a masterpiece of fear. Please stay true to your roots and continue to make the scariest games of all time. I loved Amnesia with all my heart and I hope that you make the best games possible in the future (hopefully the scariest). Best wishes and good luck. -Gustav
Frictional Games tells him to have a nice day:
Dear Gustav,

One should not pay too much attention to rumors.

If it would have been a less scary Amnesia it would have been called "Amnesia: A trip to rainbowland" or perhaps "Amnesia: A machine for cookie baking". Our dear collaborators, Chinese Room, has gone to great length to conjure up the most disturbing and repulsive subtitle for a game yet. There is nothing friendly, cuddly, or cozy about a machine for pigs. Men do not make machines that play with pigs, or sing cute songs for pig. No, there are only horrible and terrifying implications with this kind of machinery.

But please do continue with the conviction that A Machine for Pigs will be a nice and mellow experience. When it becomes a available on a dark and stormy night this coming fall, do let your guard down. Do think as you boot the game that this will be nothing to worry about. Put out all lights and play it in your damp and gloomy basement, far away from any kind of comfort, convinced that you are in for an relaxing trip.

You will then be unprepared for what will hit you, and will perhaps never dare to start your computer ever again, fearful of coming close to that machine. Your dreams will be filled with creaking machinery, the desperate cries of pigs, the rattle of chains and the dreadful feeling of something unspeakable is watching you from beyond. That is when you will regret thinking that A Machine for Pigs would be not a very scary experience.

Have a nice day!

Regards,

Thomas Grip Frictional Games
