6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Joystiq has posted a new interview with Frictional Games' Thomas Grip and thechineseroom's Dan Pinchbeck about their upcoming collabration on Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs. Although not a direct sequel to Frictional's first game, the first person horror title exists in the same universe and takes place on New Year's Day 1899, in London.
A rich industrial tycoon named Oswald Mandus collapses from a feverish nightmare in which he sees a mysterious, dark machine. A "disastrous" and tragic expedition to Mexico, compounded with his illness, have stolen months from his life and he wakes determined to piece together the missing fragments of his life.Read the full article at the link below.

Joystiq: Building A Machine For Pigs
At its core, A Machine for Pigs follows the same terror-inducing principles as the first, but changes the gameplay to keep things fresh for veterans. "People going in will not know what to expect," Grip says, noting that elements from The Dark Descent have been ripped out of the game, and new ones have been added. Neither will budge on details, only to say it remains a first-person horror title. Both agree the game has a high bar to aspire to.
"If we don't get as many cool YouTube videos of people having fits, then I'll be disappointed," Pinchbeck jokes.
"We tried looking at protecting the sense of it being an Amnesia game and really belonging to the design template that was set up [by the original]. But it's doing quite a few things that mean players won't be able to play it like Amnesia [The Dark Descent]," he adds.
