The countdown on has ended, treating us to an unsurprisingly eerie first trailer for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. Check it out below, if you dare.

A Machine for Pigs is the follow-up to 2011's Amnesia: the Dark Descent—which is, for my money, the scariest horror game ever released on the PC. The trailer shows off a similar art style to Dark Descent, but in a notably different setting. We get a glimpse of some outdoor areas, for example, which were all but absent from the claustrophobic Castle Brennenburg.

"Initially we planned to do a teaser release if we reached a certain total payments goal," Frictional Games says on their YouTube page, in reference to the Humble Indie Bundle V. "But before we had everything in place to do the event, any goal we had in mind was long passed!"

A Machine for Pigs is slated for a Q4 2012 release. That should give all of us plenty of time to prepare the dankest and darkest possible place to play it in. For now, skip to 0:29 in the trailer for maximum NOPE.
