Frictional Games and thechineseroom have already been very crafty with the reveal of Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, giving us a run around the globe with various teasers back in February. Now they’re keeping us in suspense with a new countdown timer which was initiated on the official A Machine For Pigs website. But does it mean anything?
We’re warning you now – this could lead to a very disappointing denouement, or it could be the most exciting news of the week. The countdown timer appeared on the website (top left corner of the box) yesterday with two days on the clock. One thing is certain, which could mean that there’s nothing to this countdown. The timer is synced up to finish when the Humble Bundle V does, which Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a part of. It seems odd that they would place a countdown on their website just for that though. If they have, then they’re probably having a good old laugh at those expecting anything to come from this.
What it could mean, or rather, what we hope for it to mean, is that we’ll be getting some new media once that countdown comes to a close. Screenshots or perhaps a trailer would be rather fantastic. We’re forced to keep our hype meters running very low for now though. In all reality, it will probably be nothing more than a countdown to mark the end of the Humble Bundle. But why put it on the website for A Machine For Pigs, other than to mess with heads?
We’ll keep our eye on it all, as we’re sure you will be anyway. Let’s hope for the best!
