Amnesia, Dear Esther devs might do A Machine for Pigs

If that headline sounds confusing, frightening, or mildly obscene, it has probably done its job. If the rumors are true, Frictional and TheChineseRoom - of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Dear Esther fame, respectively - might just be collaborating on a freaky-sounding game called A Machine for Pigs. Which sounds goddamn awesome

Not too long ago Frictional ran a potato-esque alternate reality game (ARG) campaign teasing its next release. The title is finally out, and it'll be called A Machine for Pigs, due this Fall. Fans digging into the ARG's "China" tease, however, seem to have uncovered more, particularly hints suggesting that TheChineseRoom's own top-secret survival horror game, also slated for a "Q4 2012" release, might be somehow related. None of this is confirmed, but the chain of hints seems pretty solid. Check out a couple of pieces of concept art in the gallery.

Oh, and the phrase fans got after they solved the ARG's final anagram puzzle?

“The world is a machine. A machine for pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs.”

Sold!

Do people still think Slenderman is scary? I don't really know; it seems like the well-dressed humanoid has faded from the collective consciousness lately. Maybe it's just that I don't visit meme websites any more. Slender: ...more

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition debut trailer, releases April 28

State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors....more

Resident Evil Revelations 2's extra episodes are fun, but non-essential

As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...more
