Following a popular trend, The New Order features a torture scene in which you’re cast as interrogator. MachineGames handles things in its own way, however, setting up a grimly comic encounter that feels emotionally powerful without being explicit. Having escaped from a raid on the asylum that looked after you, and rescued your carer, Anya, you arrive at her grandparents’ with a stolen car and your Nazi hostage. Anya’s grandmother puts on a record as you head to the basement, where your victim is tied to a chair next to table with a chainsaw on it. The game only asks you to prepare for the interrogation (“Need splatter protection”) and builds a great deal of tension by trading violence for implied threat.
