RE: Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs Discussion

Yup, I don't think I'd like achievements either. It'd really kill the atmosphere. I mean I played the HD versions of Shadow of the Colossus and Ico on PS3 recently and I was really annoyed by the constant popping up of pointless trophies there. It just makes the games feel less art-like somehow. ^^

I think bacon-related shenanigans would be better implemented as an easter egg ^^

They would only take you out of the immersion. For example:

You: *Desperately running away from a monster, trying to find a hiding spot.*

[LOLOL ACHEIVMENT UNLUCKED: RUNING FRUM PIGGE]

You: *Looks at stupid achievement and then is suddenly blasted out of immersion and no longer cares that a monster is coming to kill you.*

"Marzipan, darling."

One cool Achievement could be like: "Have a monster chase last 1 minute" or "Have a chase last 30 seconds without taking damage."

No,that's not good. If amnesia would have such an achievement,then players will try intentionally to make the monsters chasing them. It will ruin the immersion,players should want to stay away as much as they can from the monsters (out of fear of course),not run into the monsters to get some achievements.

Achievement system does not fit at all to Amnesia.

I'm not saying it should have achievements, there's no need. It just kills the horror as you said. It will pop up, you will click on it, therefore pausing the game and ruining the experience. I was only suggesting it.
