A Hauntingly Dark Journey Into the Madness of Man
I have a 21.5-inch iMac, Late 2012, 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB, 1 TB Fusion Drive, running 10.10 PREAMBLE Finally! The AI code has been fixed and the game functions as intended. A big Thank You to Frictional Games for going back and programming out the kinks. EYES From eerie street lights and dim basement candles to fiery furnaces and ghastly energies every pixel is lit to perfection. Fantastic use of desaturated color palettes and shader fog effects adds a mournful quality throughout the world. The monsters are presented in a way that is terrifyingly disturbing. One outstanding thing I noticed, visually, is that you’ll never be distracted with bad geometry as everything you see melds together so well. The game is built with a new version of their HPL2 engine and it’s showing itself to be masterfully crafted. If you’re looking for a performance comparison my system runs this smoothly at 1920x1080 on the highest (auto-detected by game) preset. EARS Deliciously brooding music pairs with spine-tingling ambient sounds to deliver you into the chaotic bedlam that is this game. There’s a prodigious amount of narration and the voiceover work is some of the best I’ve ever heard! HANDS The controls are excellent. You’ll walk around, hold your lantern, check your journal, and interact with physical objects in the world. The physics are finely tuned. Your lamp will swing around as you move. Objects you pick up will have weight and realistic gravity. GAMEPLAY Set six years after the events of the original game - the year is 1899. Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by disasterious visions, wracked with guilt, and broken on the failing dreams of an industrial utopia: he enters into a nightmare. You’ll start alone and confused in a dark mansion. You’ll search around. There are journal entries to hear/read. There are items to find and use when solving puzzles. You’ll wander through abandoned factories, vomitous bilge pump stations, and into the gates of hell while loving every minute of it. There’s not really any fighting as most of the time you’re alone or hiding from whatever monstrosities are lurking in the darkness. The story will lead you lower and lower into the infernal machine and deeper and deeper into the mind of Mandus. SUMMARY If fear makes you come alive - get this. Turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and get lost in the madness!
Temporary Fix Available!
I’ve created a temporary solution that enables the game to finish. Scroll to the top of this page and click the ‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Support’ button. You’ll be taken to the support forum. In the 'Technical Support' section find the 'Mac - AMFP' forum and then navigate to the ‘Crash’ thread. After messing with my own game, I was able to bypass the crash and have provided a saved game and instructions. If/when you reach the crash part simply place the save file into your own game folders and you’ll be able to continue on. Enjoy.
