Amnesia Developer Teasing Its Next Game
Frictional Games, the developer behind Amnesia: The Dark Descent (but not its sequel, A Machine for Pigs, which it only served as publisher) is teasing its next project.
The unimaginative, but appropriately titled website nextfrictionalgame.com currently shows a progress bar slowly gaining momentum below the words, "Booting the system after unexpected shutdown." It's unclear of the progress bar is simply a stand-in for a countdown, or if it growing based on users heading to the site, but it has grown since yesterday.
Frictional Games creative director, Thomas Grip, tweeted recently that the, "First breadcrumb is deployed," so there may be more of these hints as the project gets closer to its full reveal.
First breadcrumb is deployed. Now it is just a matter of waiting...— Thomas Grip (@ThomasGrip) September 27, 2013
Frictional Games' releases have, historically, been horror games. Presumably, whatever this is will also be a horror title as well. The computerized nature of the website makes it seem that Frictional may be trying something set more in the science fiction genre.
