If you were hoping to get your jollies rocked this coming Halloween by the sequel to the ever-spooky Amnesia, well, you’d better find some other way to transcend into a scaredy-cat state. Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is skipping its planned October launch, and is now targeting “early 2013.”
thechineseroom creative director Dan Pinchbeck has revealed that this wasn’t for nothing, of course. He’s said that the game ”could do with a few more months’ work,” and if you’re worried about how little we actually know about the game so far, that they’ll ”definitely have more to show in the not too distant future.”
Of course, with all this talk of jimmy rustling and terrible horrors, there might be more to it than just a mere delay. I’m sure you’ve all heard about this Mayan mumbo-jumbo with the world ending at the end of this year. Well, I’ve got similar news: the zodiac on my Chinese food from lunch today ends this year, too. A Machine for Pigs takes place in China? My children’s coloring mat with animals drawn on it says nothing will last past 2012?
Nice try, thechineseroom. I’m on to you.
