Amnesia Collection is a number of horror games developed by Frictional Games. It includes two games – Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. Both of them are now free from Steam for a limited time.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent was released in 2010 for PC, Mac, Linux, and PlayStation. In this game, you play as Daniel and explore a dark, gloomy, and horrifying castle. You try to avoid monsters that sneak behind you. The game should be played with good quality headphones to enjoy the game at its best. You hear distant cries, the sound of feet dragging somewhere behind you, a faraway laughter and many such other things that can raise goosebumps.
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was released in 2013 for all the same platforms as The Dark Descent. This game takes you back in the year 1899. On the New Year’s Eve, you find yourself in old-fashioned streets of London. In this game, you play as an old relative of Daniel (from The Dark Descent). You cannot really differentiate between real events and dreams. You are working on destroying a machine that created man-pigs (half human and half pig) creatures that go outside on the streets of London, grab their victims and eat them.
The way these both games have been made available for free is a little bit strange. If you search of any of them, then you are shown only the paid version of the game. But if you find the “Amnesia Collection” package on Steam, then you can get it for free. Individually, both games cost $20 each, but you can get them both free using the link given below from Steam. The download size for both games is around 7.5 GB in total.
