"A Machine For Pigs is a very different game than The Dark Descent. But it is not lacking in quality."

Acerca deste jogo

This world is a Machine. A Machine for Pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of Pigs.

From the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Dear Esther comes a new first-person horrorgame that will drag you to the depths of greed, power and madness. It will bury its snout into your ribs and it will eat your heart.

The year is 1899

Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, wracked with fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by visions of a disastrous expedition to Mexico, broken on the failing dreams of an industrial utopia, wracked with guilt and tropical disease, he wakes into a nightmare. The house is silent, the ground beneath him shaking at the will of some infernal machine: all he knows is that his children are in grave peril, and it is up to him to save them.

Unique Selling Points

  • Fresh and new approach to the Amnesia world while staying true to its origins.
  • The darkest, most horrific tale ever told in a videogame.
  • Stunning soundtrack by award-winning composer Jessica Curry.

I wanted to like this, I really did. But the troubles start before you've even properly begun. The game is full of bugs. Forums are filled with people (myself included) trying to figure work-arounds for issues like constant in-game lag (has nothing to do with the quality of your rig or having the necessary audio/video drivers updated), random graphic hitches that filter the screen in a blue, washed-out color, and audio stuttering. Some of the fixes work, though mostly for temporary periods. If you do manage to run the game properly after all that:

PROS:

+ The environment is great. The mansion is atmospheric, spooky and interesting to explore.
+ The voice acting is very good.

CONS:

- First and foremost: The game is just not scary. It's not Amnesia. It's Dark Esther. It's not survival and stealth, it's exploration. There's next to no tension.
- The tinderboxes (requiring you to work on conserving them for light) are gone. Instead you have a lantern that never goes out. Considering that the mansion is pretty well lit 90% of the time, I found I hardly needed to use it (even with Gamma turned down)
- The sanity system is gone, and with it the tense effort to remain sane in the wake of prowling monstrosities.
- The monsters. The pigmonsters are not scary. They're just silly looking. They don't pursue you with the intensity of the creatures in Dark Descent and you can look at them without fear of insanity, which whittles away the mysterious fear factor very quickly.
- The story is just dull. There is some possibility in the beginning that it might go in a certain, disturbing direction based on the narrative given, but it turns out to be pretty boring and a bit nonsensical. The characters just aren't very interesting. You don't really care very much.

For the money you pay, I really can't recommend this one. If you must, buy the steam code for it on 99Gamers for cheap, instead of throwing $22 out for it.

Looks pretty and the voice acting is good, but the scares are anemic (you don't ever explicitly "die" in the game for poorly justified in-universe reasons, killing any and all tension just because some ♥♥♥♥♥ at thechineseroom thought that would be worth doing to justify what essentially amounts to an in-universe replacement for a quicksave/quickload), the story and themes induce eye-rolling rather than dread (PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS HUMANS ARE PIGS IN THE ETERNAL MACHINE OF SOCIETY ARE YOU SCARED BY THIS EXTREMELY GENERIC AND OVERUSED METAPHOR YET?, and too much streamlining of puzzles (I like streamlining of needless complexity and menus when it's done well but A Metaphor for Pigs took it a bit too far in my eyes) makes the actual game lack any true challenge or meat to it. Oh, and it can be beaten in less than four hours.

Skip this porker. It's all sizzle and no steak... er, bacon.

I will be completely honest here, I used a walkthrough for this and played it in a fully lit room, and sped my way to the end in about two hours.

The game is no where near as scary as the original Amnesia, but I still ended up going through multiple pairs of underwear. The puzzles are decent, however I don't see how anyone could work some them out if they didn't have a guide.

The game does also have some serious performance issues, no matter what settings I changed, the frame rate dropped rapidly between 60 fps and 30 fps. Not sure why, it may just of been me, but my rig is more than powerful enough to run this.

If you haven't played an Amnesia game before, I'd definitely recommend the original over this one, however Machine for Pigs is still a good game.

★★☆☆☆

Pros:
- The game starts really strong, I was creeped out by the mansion with its decor, stuffed animals and was interesting to explore.
- Some of the victorian streets were very befitting to the games style.
- That pigs head wasnt there before was it.
- The whole game is very well voiced acted.

Cons:
- The puzzles are extremely obvious and theres little difference in them.
- At first I was reading notes and listening for every sound but as the story went on the less I cared, its characters were severely lacking making it extremely dull and on a whole the game is uneventful.
- The pigs are pathetic, they're not scary and their attacks barely affect you. Theres no need to hide and you can easily run by then in your few encounters.
- Machine for pigs did nothing to build on the original and instead decided against all of the aspects that made it great, theres no survival or fear for your life.
- Apart from the very early stages theres barely an ounce of genuine tension. As you went further down this worsened.
- I suffered like many others with random lag when the talking scenes occured which really ruined any immersion I had, especially towards the terrible ending.

Verdict: This game offers the biggest deterioration from start to finish I have ever seen and it results in being a boring experience.

If you called this game by any other name, I wouldn't have even known it was from the amnesia franchise.

Steer away from this game if you're expecting it to be anything like the first amnesia game... or a horror game in general.
