Thechineseroom has sent out an additional round of screenshots from Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs. Though Pigs is a horror game, don't expect these images to frighten you. They merely show off some of the environments from the upcoming PC/Mac/Linux game.
A Machine for Pigs stars an industrialist named Oswald Mandus. After a personal tragedy, he begins having nightmares about a mysterious machine. He wakes up one day to find that his home is now occupied by pig-like monsters.
While the developers haven't said much about the gameplay, it should be similar to that of predecessor Amnesia: Dark Descent. Players won't be fighting monsters. Instead, they have to run and hide from any enemies they encounter. When they're not fleeing for their lives, players will have to solve puzzles throughout the game world.
Still, there should be some important differences between Descent and Machine for Pigs. Pigs isn't being developed by Frictional Games. Instead, they're acting as publisher while Dear Esther studio thechineseroom handles development.
The screenshots don't show any of the monsters that players encounter. To my knowledge, these monsters haven't actually made appearances in any of the screens or trailers released thus far. That's just fine with me. I'd rather be surprised when I'm playing through the game for the first time.
Machine for Pigs is expected this summer.
