* ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'' heavily implies that humans might be serving as meat for ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'': [[spoiler: As Mandus' sausage factory.diary entries first hint at and then ultimately confirm, the Machine is processing ''human flesh'' which Mandus is then distributing as pork. It's unclear if all the meat he produced was human, or if he was offering a mixture of human flesh and real pork. Several late-game diary notes reveal that Mandus took a particular cruel delight in first feeding human meat to oblivious wealthy individuals at parties held at his estate, and then abducting as many of those people as he could without generating panic to [[EatTheRich feed them to the next party's guests]].]]
