Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs today, Layers of Fear 2 next week

Halloween isn't just a single day in October so much as it is a mindset – at least, that's the excuse I'm using to justify watching all of my favorite horror movies again that I haven't seen in years, from Prince of Darkness to The People Under the Stairs to Hellraiser. That goes for video games, too. Squeeze 'em in.

As usual, the Epic Games Store is giving out free games, and the October lineup has a few titles befitting the Halloween mood. This week, it's Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Kingdom New Lands (admittedly an outlier). Next week – from October 22 to October 29 – it's Layers of Fear 2 and Costume Quest 2.

The picks make a lot of sense from a promotional standpoint. Frictional Games has Amnesia: Rebirth coming up on October 20, while Bloober Team has The Medium on December 10. I know most folks weren't over the moon about A Machine for Pigs (and I could say the same for Layers of Fear 2, which just didn't "click" with me), but criticisms are easier to accept when you're getting a game for free.

Flawed horror still has its place! See you next Thursday when it's time for another reminder.
