The Scene They Cut From ‘A Machine For Pigs’ Because It Was TOO Twisted

ComeHither

First off, thank you, Frictional, for giving me a reason to bring back that amazing banner. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

As disturbing as Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is, it was almost far, far more twisted. Kill Screen recently sat down with The Chinese Room’s Dan Pinchbeck and his wife, composer Jessica Curry to chat about a scene they cut from A Machine for Pigs. Details after the jump.

According to Pinchbeck, “There was a pig fucking a dead body. The problem was it just looked like the pig was raping someone. It started off fucking a female body, and actually it just looked like rape. So we switched it out for a male body, and it looked like gay rape. No better. We were trying to make a point of how animalistic the pigs were. But it didn’t add enough to justify the schlock.

Jessica Curry: We were lying in bed together and Dan tapped me on the shoulder and woke me up and went, “Pigs fucking human corpse.” I thought, “Who the fuck have I married!”

Pinchbeck: But you’ve got to push it too far to find out where that line is. If you tiptoe cautiously up, you’ll always fall short. That’s how you find something with a real edge.”

Woah. That’s definitely disgusting, and honestly, I would’ve loved to see it in-game. I understand why it was cut, but seriously, can you imagine walking into a room and seeing one of those pig monsters raping a corpse? I’d say that’s just as twisted as a lunatic doing the same thing in Outlast.

Have a question? Feel free to ever-so-gently toss Adam an email, or follow him on Twitter and Bloody Disgusting.

    They should have kept it. It kind of reminds me of that manikin scene in one of the Silent Hill games. It kind of looks like Pyramid Head is raping a manikin, but it’s kind of hard to see. The ambiguity is what makes those kinds of things far more creepy.
