Does it ever begin to be scary? I think I've played it for about an hour, made quite a lot of progress, almost made it to the church, but nothing scary has happened yet.
I guess the first Amnesia was not scary either, because of how hilariously predictable it was with its usage of monsters. But it also had some pretty cool mechanics like lamp fuel, or tinderboxes, or sanity, which all seem absent from the Machine.
At least the locations are pretty gorgeous. Mandus's manor is beautiful.
I only seen Pewdiepie play it.
But I already have a insane amount of wallpapers and I find it beautiful. Not scary though…
I've seen a bit of it played (it's honestly so hard to find people playing who don't talk but I found a pretty decent LPer) and I was enjoying what I saw so far. Granted my only knowledge of the game previously came from Yatzee from Zero Punctuation; I respect is opinion on horror games enough to take what he says about it at face value.
I know I was more interested in this game than I ever was about The Dark Descent (not that I wouldn't want to play the first one but this one sounded much more interesting to me). It sounded beautiful and honestly from what I've seen it does feel unsettling and beautiful. I wish I had more time to watch the rest of the game played.
