The follow up to 2010’s Amnesia: The Dark Descent, titled Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, has gotten a release date. Developed by The Chinese Room, Machine for Pigs will be released on September 10th for PC, Linux and Mac.
The survival horror game follows from the critical success of it’s predecessor developed by Frictional Games back in 2010 and focus’ on the story of Oswald Mandus, a wealthy industrialist who lives in 1899, Victorian London. The sequel was originally intended for release back in July 2012 but The Chinese Room decided to push it back to 2013, at which time the game was reportedly primarily being optimised and polished.
“One of the great things about being an indie developer is you can really spend the time you want and need on a game without the pressure to release by a certain point,” said creative director Dan Pinchbeck to website Polygon.
“So it’s all good, really — we know fans are being super patient and we really appreciate that, but I can absolutely guarantee the delay is 100 percent worth it.”
If you wish to pre-order A Machine for Pigs you can do over at GOG and Desura. The game will cost $15.99 until launch when it will become $19.99, giving you bonus incentive to preorder whilst you can.
