- "I have stood knee deep in mud and bone and filled my lungs with mustard gas. I have seen two brothers fall. I have lain with holy wars and copulated with the autumnal fallout. I have dug trenches for the refugees; I have murdered dissidents where the ground never thaws and starved the masses into faith. A child's shadow burnt into the brickwork. A house of skulls in the jungle. The innocent, the innocent, Mandus, trod and bled and gassed and starved and beaten and murdered and enslaved. This is your coming century! They will eat them Mandus, they will make pigs of you all and they will bury their snouts into your ribs and they will eat your hearts!" –Temple
The Machine is an antagonist in Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. Created by Oswald Mandus in 1899 to harvest people and automate human sacrifice on an industrial scale in the hope that it might prevent the horrific events of the 20th century, The Machine is purely malevolent.
The physical part of The Machine is enormous, stretching far and wide beneath London.
