What is Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs?
I'd classify the Amnesia games as psychological thrillers that are greatly story driven couched with atmosphere. It's not a horror game, so don't get upset because you don't know what Amnesia is about. They are great games for those who like mystery, story, and atmosphere.
There are scares however! I jumped the first 5 minutes into the game. I won't give anything away, but please don't knock the game simply because it's not your style and you didn't research it first. It's a great game.

Amnesia, but only because i didnt get a chance to finish penumbra so i dont know how that turns out. What is misleading is that the developers were saying in their posts that it would be a classic amnesia experience and remain tru to it's origins, which it flat out did not in most aspects.

Hmmm...strange. I haven't played it enough to tell, but hope it's ok.

Pigs is promising at first, a few of the locations show what potential the game had, but then after a certain point it's like they just forgot about the game and just used it as a medium to finish the story. Good luck anyways, i hope you enjoy it more than i did.

Thanks! I'll let you know once I'm finished with it. If I make it that far. I do enjoy the others.

I liked it a lot. It reminds me of Bioshock but without the excessive repetitive action. Not exactly scary no, but quite disturbing in many ways, and it has parallels with reality just like Bioshock so it is quite interesting on that level as well.

I suppose as Gotta Ramble says, the gameplay isn't as involved as it could be. It is mostly about story and discovery instead of interactivity.

Amazing music, lots of atmosphere, and bizarre interpretation of some of humanity's oft twisted ambition.
