a machine for pigs. scarier than the dark descent? no. scary? hell yes. machine for pigs is absolutely terrifying but not as bad as dark descent, let alone the custom stories. do you like walking through a factory used to slaughter pigs being haunted by your two LOVELY sons whilst squealing pig mutations hunt you down? well this game is just PERFECT for you. the first time you see these demon hell-spawns makes you want to pause and frantically quit the game but as you progress the repetition of being hunted by the same thing over and over makes the experience get less scary, however when the game gets to this point, it seems unintentional to be scary anymore, rather with the player completing puzzles, however, don't be off-put, it takes a VERY long time to become less scary. as you read through notes you can discover connections to the previous amnesia game so i recommend playing the dark descent first. enjoy your heart breaking out of your own chest.
