Writing on the Frictional blog, a spokesperson said that the game, which was originally scheduled for a Halloween release, had transformed into a fully-fledged Amnesia title.

"How come a game meant for Halloween 2012 has been delayed for so long?" the spokesperson writes.

"Originally we thought it would be a short, experimental game set in the universe of Amnesia, but thechineseroom had a vision that was bigger than that.

"As their work progressed, the potential for a much greater project emerged.

"What we ended up with is no longer what we had first imagined, but a fully fledged Amnesia game. A different kind of Amnesia, but definitely not a short experiment."


Set in 1899, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs sees a wealthy industrialist return home after a disastrous trip in Mexico, and is haunted by dreams of a dark machine that has seemingly come to live.

The title is the successor to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which was acclaimed for its psychological elements and atmospheric surroundings.

It won several awards at the 2011 Independent Game Festival, and was also part of a recent Humble Indie Bundle.

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs will be available on PC later this year.
