'Amnesia' Sequel Gets a Teaser, Terrifies Me
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is arguably the scariest game of all time, and for good reason. I don't think any game has so successfully combined the haunting slow build of an unseen terror just around the corner, with pure, unfiltered, pants-wetting panic. With that in mind, many finds were disappointed and confused when Frictional Games announced they were handing off development on the sequel to TheChineseRoom, the guys behind the art game Dear Esther.
Dear Esther was certainly pretty, and without a doubt atmospheric; but at no point during that experience did I feel the need to change my pants. And the thought of a lackluster sequel to Amnesia seems just as scary as a water lurker in your bathtub. Well after seeing this teaser, I can rightly say that fellow Amnesia fans can put those fears to rest (and pick up a few new ones), because it looks awesome.
The terrifying music, the beautiful locales, and whatever that... thing is at the end, it all looks perfect. You can be the judge of that however, the Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs teaser is posted below. The game is expected to arrive sometime in early 2013.
