Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs delayed again: no longer conflicts with Summer BBQs

Frictional Games have announced that their follow-up to scare’em’up Amnesia, A Machine for Pigs, won’t be hitting its projected Summer release window. Considering the game’s abattoir setting and the prevalence of seared pig meat that goes on during summer this may be for the best, Frictional don’t want to go and put you off BBQs anytime soon.

(As ever, though, vegetarians miss out. Getting neither games nor BBQs.)

The news came via a forum post from Frictional’s Jens Nilsson, saying “We know we will not make Q2, we also know when the game will be ready for launch. We have not set the exact day yet. You can however make good use of the weather outside this summer and look forward to gaming with the piggies as the summer comes to an end.”

Apparently, the delay’s being caused by optimising the game, plus translating it into nine different languages and getting all the ports of A Machine for Pigs working in good order.

This isn’t the first time A Machine for Pigs has been delayed. Originally it was due out for release early in 2013, but in February we learned it was to be pushed back for a Q2 release. That was because the game had grown as a project from a short experiment into something much larger. At the time one of our readers, VinsanityV22 suggested “Considering the timing, I wonder if, perhaps, some outside party approached these guys with intent to port it to more platforms?” It would appear he was right. We have very smart readers - as you know doubt know, good reader.
