Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is free on Epic right now


Piggy-wigs was quite different for an Amnesia follow-up, having been made by Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture developers Thechineseroom rather than series creators Frictional Games, but it does have some jolly unpleasant parts.


First released in 2013, the first-person horror game is set in London at the turn of the 20th century and revolves around a great and terrible machine.


It ditches a few bits from Amnesia: The Dark Descent, like the sanity and inventory systems, which disappointed some fans but it’s decent as its own thing.


Going to open a door and having it BANGBANGBANGHOWL in your face is enough of a jump scare, but when the sound goes on and implies some vast machine starting up in the Earth beneath you, and architecture is buckling and coming down around you, and then pigs are screaming on the other side of the walls.


Frictional released the source code for Dark Descent and Piggy-wigs last month too, if you fancy really rooting around in it (or waiting to see what other people do with this – dare you dream of VR support?


Next week’s Epic freebies will also be spooky: Double Fine’s cute trick-or-treating RPG Costume Quest 2, and first-person explore-o-horror Layers Of Fear 2.
