Developer Frictional Games has stealth-released not one, but two popular horror games onto the Nintendo Switch: ‘ Amnesia: The Dark Descent’ and ‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’.
The games are presently accessible on the hybrid Nintendo console, alongside the expansion of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, dubbed Amnesia: Justine. They are only available via the Amnesia: Collection, which costs $30, the same price point it is offered at on other storefronts.
To supplement the stealth-release, developer Frictional Games has also released a new trailer, which is as strange as the games it markets. As for Frictional Games’ other favorite horror game, Soma, there’s no word of a Nintendo Switch port. However, hopefully, this will change with time. It is one of the best horror games of this generation.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent: Amnesia: The Dark Descent places you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a deserted castle, hardly memorizing anything about his past. Examining the eerie pathways, you must also take part in Daniel’s tormented memories.
The horror does not only come from the outside but the inside as well. A disturbing odyssey into the dark edges of the human mind anticipates you. Is that a real sound of dragging feet or it is just your mind playing tricks on you?
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs: The year is 1899, Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus wakes up in his bed, with fever and tormented by dreams of a dark and destructive engine.
Disturbed by visions of a calamitous 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 quiet, the ground beneath him trembling at the disposition of some diabolical machine: and all he knows is that his children are in grave danger, and it is all up to him to save them.
