Frictional Games believe that cut-scenes are the biggest culprit for the lack of agency

We’ve said a lot of times that cut-scenes and quick-time events should be avoided. A couple of days ago, we informed you about Crytek’s plans for Crysis 3 and in that story, we expressed – for one more time – our opinion about the quick-time and scripted events. And we are happy to see the developers of Amnesia: The Dark Descent backing our claims. According to Frictional’s Thomas the biggest culprit for the lack of agency in most horror games are the cut-scenes. Damn straight right.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs will be filled with more terror, horror and paranoia than Amnesia: The Dark Descent

In a recent interview with Joystiq, Frictinal Games and The Chinese Room revealed what most of us were suspecting all this time. The two companies are joining forces for the next Amnesia title called ‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’. This new Amnesia game is funded by Frictional Games, developed by The Chinese Room, and will be released some time before this year’s Halloween. But that’s not important. What’s really interesting here is that Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs will be filled with more terror, horror and paranoia. In other words, you’ll once again scream like a little girl and perhaps squeeze… like a pig.

Frictional Games’ Next Game hints to Seattle; final artwork revealed

And after the first two blurry images, Frictional Games has decided to actually reveal the final artwork for their next game. This artwork hints to sewers (or underground tunnels and caves… or something in-between) that will be featured in the game and looks quite sick. I mean, look at that meat / corpse hanging in the middle of the sewer. This new artwork definitely seems appropriate for Amnesia’s sequel.

New hints for Frictional Games’ next game point to UK’s Boreray

Okay, I love those teasing hints from Frictional Games about their next game. A few days after the reveal of the website for the company’s next game – and alongside the reveal of a blurry image and a ‘China hint’ from Google Maps – we got some new hints which indicate that Frictional’s new game could take place in multiple places. From what we have gathered, this could be an Amnesia game as the image of the main site has its logo. It could be a direct sequel, an expansion or a spiritual successor. In other words, another horror game. Continue reading New hints for Frictional Games’ next game point to UK’s Boreray

Amnesia: The Dark Descent’s horror total conversion, White Night, is out now

If there is one adventure series that I really loved these past years, this is definitely Frictional Games’ Penumbra series – I still consider Amnesia as the spiritual successor of Penumbra so you can add it to that series. Frictional Games is a really talented studio, no doubt about that. Their latest game, Amnesia has managed to top their previous attempts and is still considered as one of the best horror games ever created.
