A Machine for Pigs is a first-person puzzle and exploration game in which a man named Oswald Mandus wakes up in his house with no memory of what happened.
Click a title to learn more about each topic.
As he explores the house and the grounds, Mandus finds his own old journal entries, as well as phonograph recordings and diaries from his children. It is revealed the Mandus is a wealthy butcher whose giant factory has been sabotaged. The children are trapped in “the Machine,” which Mandus needs to restart. Of course, not all is as it seems and Mandus discovers terrible truths about his past actions—he built the machine after an ill-fated trip to Mexico where he saw a horrible vision of the tragedies of the 21st century—as well as the terrible effects of colonialism on the Mexican people.
The purpose of the machine is to industrialize human sacrifice, in order to bring about a new mechanized god and save humanity from itself. The machine has already been at work creating monstrous human/pig hybrids. Later in the game, these pigmen are released and throw London into chaos as they murder people and feed their bodies to the machine. Mandus realizes what a horrible mistake he has made and sacrifices himself to destroy the machine.
The overarching theme of A Machine for Pigs is about how industrialized society treats humans workers no better than pigs. The metaphor is rather hammered home, visually and textually. AMFP critiques in turn an uncaring upper class that uses the poor like cogs in a wheel, as well as the lower class that files unthinkingly into factories.
From the dead pigs, to the pigmen, to the machine itself, the game is intended to disturb and unsettle the player. At one point, literal rivers of blood run through the factory.
There is a painting in Mandus’s house of a woman with one breast exposed. Of more concern is that she appears to be cooking someone’s leg in a pot. There are naked human corpses, and one male corpse that Mandus finds face-down in the street has visible genitalia.

'The world is a machine. A machine for pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs.”
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is a terrifying journey into madness, industrialisation and the darkest secrets of the soul.
The year is 1899
Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, wracked with fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by visions of a disastrous expedition to Mexico, broken on the failing dreams of an industrial utopia, wracked with guilt and tropical disease, he wakes into a nightmare. The house is silent, the ground beneath him shaking at the will of some infernal machine: all he knows is that his children are in grave peril, and it is up to him to save them.
Step back into the horror!
Like The Dark Descent, this is a game driven by its story, exploration of the world and the constant fear of the unknown.
Think you understand fear? Think again.
A Machine for Pigs takes both the world of Amnesia and the technology of The Dark Descent to new heights of horror. Built using an updated version of HPL2 engine, the game features stunning visual and environment design, incredible music and audio effects and adapted artificial intelligence. These are all driven by a gut-wrenching, blood-curdling new story, set sixty years after the events of the original game.
'A Machine For Pigs is an almost flawless exercise in lurking horror.'
'…picks at the darkest corners of our subconscious and society as a whole.'
'It will test your nerves to breaking point.'
'…tense, and disturbing… this is a marvellous, revolting, disturbing sequel to Dark Descent.'
'Dark Descent took you on a steady journey into an ocean of madness. A Machine for Pigs will hold your head underwater until you’re about to drown and then bring you back up for air, again and again.'
