Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs gets a spooky Halloween trailer

Dev asks fans to submit their screams for the soundtrack.

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs - the highly anticipated sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent - has pulled back the curtain on its mysterious machinations ever so much with a new trailer.

Dear Esther developer thechineseroom is handling the sequel while the developer of The Dark Descent, Frictional Games, is staying on board to oversee production.

Based on the trailer, the environments may be slightly more lavish than those of its predecessor, but it still looks every bit as terrifying - if not more so. Lighting is still kept to a minimum and carrying a lantern still looks just as much a hindrance as a help when it illuminates you in its dreary environments filled with echoes of screams, squeals, and screeches.

On that note, the developer is asking fans to record clips of them screaming to be used for the game's audio.

"Record your screams, your whimpers, your blood curdling shrieks of terror and you could star in Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs," said thechineroom. "We are on the hunt for the sounds of fear, panic, terror, anguish, torture and horrid, awful death to include in the soundtrack for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs."

The clips can be sent as Wavs, Oggs or MP3s to

"We don't care who does the screaming. We just want the fear," it added.

This is not a pig. But I guess that depends on your definition of 'pig' now, doesn't it?
