The Moving Pixels Podcast Explores 'A Machine for Pigs'

by G. Christopher Williams

14 November 2016

This week we follow up on our recent discussion of Amnesia with an exploration of its sequel A Machine for Pigs.
 

Following up on our discussion from last week of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, this week we discuss that game’s follow up A Machine for Pigs.

Machine for Pigs was handed off from Frictional Games to The Chinese Room. As a result, we consider how the new developer handles a classic property and reconsiders what kind of horror the Amnesia franchise can offer.
  

This podcast is available via Soundcloud.

Additionally, we are also available on iTunes.
