Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs


Recommended Posts

I now play games in the mindset of a game designer and not a gamer. I think about how I would design the level, how i would write the story, how I would design the puzzles instead of just alowwing myself to be immersed

Me too. But I think it is very important to be able to enjoy games. Otherwise, how do you know whether what you create is actually fun or not?

I'm not satisfyed with lack of any humor whatsoever in this game. And this parent child BioShock ref is annoying, music suks too big time. Got sick at this Victorian epoch style haunted house clishe. Factory is good, if there would be another storyline, it could be 5 star game.

What excuse do we have not to sculpt, and sculpt, and sculpt, until the job is done?

Take a look at outlast, despite another obvious asylum-patients clishe it is quite a gem both technicaly and design wise. I espesially loved voiceovers, great acting, not some amateur stuff from AMFP.

Very mixed reviews on this one. For me the first Amnesia pretty much rubbed on the face of every game developer how to make a horror game. The thing is, now we know! there's a bazillion of great horror games that grew from that seed, thus A Machine For Pigs won't have the advantage it had before.

      i am so euphoric to see new FMs keep coming out and I am keen to try it out in my leisure time, then suddenly my PC is spouting a couple of S.M.A.R.T errors...
      tbf i cannot afford myself to miss my network emulator image file&progress, important ebooks, hyper-v checkpoint & hyper-v export and the preciousĀ thief & TDM gamesaves. Don't fall yourself into & lay your hands on crappy SSD

      Does anyone actually use the Normalise button in the Surface inspector? Even after looking at the code I'm not quite sure what it's for.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?
