Not Massive: A Machine For Nightmares


At 11pm today I did what any normal person would do: I purchased Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs and played in the dark with my headphones on. The best image I can think of to describe playing Amnesia is to remember back to when you were a child and you would wake up in the middle of the night to use the toilet or because you were thirsty, etc. You are old enough by this point to know that monsters don’t exist, but still…was your door always that far away from the bed? Does the house always make these noises at night? It sure is dark, and that shadow illuminated on your wall looks a lot like someone standing at your window. Don’t look, it isn’t real. In fact you might just be in a dream where nothing is off limits. Don’t blink. What was that noise? It’s coming from under the bed, or is it downstairs? There shouldn’t be anyone downstairs. Come to think of it, I never realized my bed had just enough room for someone to hide under and grab my legs. I think I’ll wait until morning.

That, in a nutshell, is the first hour of Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, except with the knowledge that yes, the monsters are real. And they will murder you.
