[Update - Yeah, all the count down did was change the banner. Now there is a little ghost that goes "Boo". I guess they just wanted to tease their fans. Nothing to see here people, you can go home now.]
Amnesia: The Dark Descent was one of the best horror games ever developed, and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs looks like it is going to be able to carry on that title, and be just as good. Anyone who played The Dark Descent has had their eye on A Machine for Pigs, and something finally happened. While Frictional Games has been pretty good at keeping A Machine for Pigs a secret, a counter on the game’s website leads most people to believe something is coming, even though we don’t know what yet.
The counter showed up recently, and Frictional has not given any information regarding what it is doing there. It’s synced up with the Humble Bundle V bundle (which Amnesia: The Dark Descent is part of), so maybe those two are related. Are they gearing up for a reveal? Are they canceling the game? Are they going to scare us? Only time can tell exactly what the timer means. If you want to see it for yourself, you can head over to the Machine for Pigs website and check it out. There’s 8 minutes remaining as of this posting, so head over fast!
