Mod Review on Nov 29th, 2014 - 2 people agree

Positives:

- Flawless voice acting
- Emotional story
- Creativity
- Custom music (and pretty good to)

Negatives:

- Very short (took less than half an hour to finish)
- Not very clear what to do, lacks mementos
- Level design is pretty average

Conclusion:

Krypton141 sums up this story perfectly. The voice acting is very good. Sounds like something out of a movie.

The story is good, but way too short. I really feel like you could have added more events, or made the events you have a little longer. It took me less than half an hour to complete it. It usually takes around that time to get immersed, and before enemies usually shows up in the longer, well made stories.

Level design is way too average. Nothing special about it at all, but the custom, never used in a story before music really weight it all up.

If you make a new story in the future, add more details to your levels and make the story a little longer and I will absolutely play it.

Rift: The Horror of 145
7 Review

Mod Review on Sep 3rd, 2014 - 1 person agrees

Positives:

- Creative storyline
- Pretty long story
- Challange
- Many endings

Negatives:

- Not many effects of any kind
- Not very scary
- Really confusing, not enough indication where the items are
- A lot of rooms are pointless (nothing to find in them)
- Level design is pretty bland in some areas
- A few flaws

What to improve:

Some maps are very well made, beutiful and creepy, but some maps are bland and plain boring and pointless. A lot of the maps are much bigger than they needs to be.

It was really frustrating to have one item missing and have no clue where it is and you have no choise but to either look in the editor/ask for help or look through every single map.

You could add a few more effects. Scares, particle effects etc.

The orb that required a payment could be pushed to the floor by other objects, like a chair and then be picked up.

Conclusion:

I really enjoyed this story a lot untill I stopped finding items and had to run around in every single map in every single room, trying to find something useful.

It's a really nice story, but way too confusing.

Krypta / The Crypt...pl / eng version( RELEASED! )
7 Review

Mod Review on Jun 25th, 2014

Positives:

- Creativity
- Intresting maps and events
- Custom items

Negatives:

- Only jumpscares more or less
- Really confusing sometimes
- Horrible english translation
- A lot of things did not make any sense due to the horrible language

--------------

The story was pretty good actually, I just didn't understand very much of it because of the horrible english translation. I clicked on locked doors and it said "blocked" even though nothing was blocking them on any sides, a note said a "key is in trunk of bird", seriously, the english is so bad so I couldn't be that bad even if I tried to be horrible on purpose.

The level design have a few glitches but is really good and intresting in general and I really like the custom items, especially the custom corpses.

Conclusion:

It's a decent story with a lot of thoughts and creativity put into it. The scares were kinda lame and it was pretty confusing at times (might be because I didn't understand half of the notes and mementos though).

But the english file need a huge update. I actually have comments on other sites I made when I was around 12 years old, and those comments are really good compared to this. Even when I try to be as bad as I can on purpose, this story still tops that.

Mysteries of the Beyond
7 Review

Mod Review on May 18th, 2014

Positives:

- Quite creepy
- Decent scripting
- Voice acting
- Main character is mumbling at times (something pretty few stories do)
- Pretty long story

Negatives:

- Not very well developed (explaination to this further down)
- A huge and annoying bug (also read further down)
- The ending
- Not many details

Improvements:

Story:

- The story isn't bad, but it was poorly developed. Richard was accepted into some sort of elite military group, which you didn't deveolped on at all. Same with the rest of the story. I found smal parts of a lot of different stories from different characters perspective, but just like Richards story, they too wasn't well explained or worked on.

- The ending did not feel satisfying at all. "I need to find a way to get farther below the castle", one of the first mementos in the story. I was expecting something intresting to be there, but all I found was a machine of some sort (which wasn't developed on very well either) I could turn on and die instantly by the monster, or just leave it and go away. What was the purpose of going down there to begin with?

Bug:

- In the study, if you use the lever before the suitor spawns, you're stuck. My only option was to replay the whole map, wait for the suitor to spawn and then pull the lever. I highly suggest you fix that or make up a logical explaination. Perhaps Richard don't remember how to unlock the door and the note explaining how to unlock it can be found in the room with the crowbar or something like that?

- In the storage with the lever, why can't I jump over the smal rocks? You want it to be more of a challange by forcing the player to go around it perhaps, but still. It made no sense

--------------

Conclusion:

I enjoyed playing this mod a lot actually. It was intresting to see through the eyes of a true psychopath and the mod is well made. Story can be better, but to be your first mod, it's really great.

The Mystery of the Mansion
7 Review

Mod Review on Apr 2nd, 2014 - 2 people agree 1 person doesn't

Positives:

- Very well made scares
- Good scripting
- Decent level design

Negatives:

- A few gitches in the levels
- Not enough story
- Ending was scary and good, but a bit confusing

Conclusion:

It's a great mod with awesome scares and average level design, but it's missing a good story line. No story line/lack of it is most of the times making a mod pretty boring, but the scares were unique and the maps/scripting pretty intresting.

In Dark

Mod Review on Mar 14th, 2014 - 2 people agree 2 people don't

Positives:

- Intresting story
- Decent level design
- Voice acting

Negatives:

- Ladder event
- Not much challange
- The music needs some work

Conclusion:

This is exactly what we need, people which put alot of effort to the story. The music wasn't very great and the even when I had to throw up a ladder and place it above me so I can get across the hole, jesus christ, not only did it get stuck/fell down five times, I also had to rotate it in a perfect angle to get passed the invisible block boxes that were blocking more than it had to.

Mr.Austin's Experiment
7 Review

Mod Review on Feb 18th, 2014 - 2 people agree 1 person doesn't

Positives:

- Good level design
- Creepy atmosphere
- Creativity
- More than one ending

Negatives:

- The classic "you wake up somewhere unkown". You did it well, but it's still lack of originallity
- Some puzzles were a bit hard to solve
- Drill did not have a description or name when it was fixed
- Really annoying when you force the player to turn around and look at the chasing monster
- Possible to speed run the story in 2-4 minutes (read conclusion)

Conclusion:

For a first story it's actually really good! The level design is not unique, but you definitely spent a lot of time on it.

The story, despite the lack of originallity, turned out to be really well made as well.

Good job!

On a little side note. Please, don't force the player to look at the chasing monster! I was running forward, the character automaticly turned around and I ended up running towards the monster instead.

And when I encountered the curtain bug, I eventually tried to bug myself to the next part of the story using barrels. It turned out I was able to barrel bug me so much so I could speedrun the story in around 2-4 minutes when doing the escape ending. The whole glitching through doors using barrels can be done in more or less every story so it's not really your fault, I just wanted to point it out.

Trials of the Toymaker
7 Review

Mod Review on Feb 9th, 2014 - 4 people agree 1 person doesn't

Trails of the Toymaker delivers creative challanges and level design at it's finest. But I can't stop asking myself where the story line is. It barley is one.

You gave yourself a challange to see what you can make in two weeks, but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to upload it. If it weren't for the amazing level design and intresting ideas, I would probably not have liked this in the slighest, but even though it lacks what every single custom mod should have (not to mention how short it is), it still amazes me, and if you make a story in the future, I will be glad to play it.

Oh yeah, and by the way, don't do like The Chinese Room did, make nothing interactable. Being able to pick up stuff is one of many reasons why Amnesia is what it is today, don't take that away from us.

Lonely Christmas Teil I
7 Review

Mod Review on Jan 5th, 2014 - 2 people agree

Positives:

- Surprisingly good level design
- Scary
- Good scripting (some of it even unqie)

Negatives:

- Story line could be better
- Except for the tree, this has nothing to do with christmas at all. It's not even winter outside
- Your english is so horribly bad I was on a thin line to start crying
- What is the point of the bonus rooms? I didn't get any awards for completing them, in fact, my health and sanity was worse when I returned to the "normal" world

Conclusion:

Why is it called "Lonely Christmas"? Is it because you released it around christmas time? Because that, and the christmas tree in the first room are the two only reasons I can think of. It doesn't focus on christmas or winter what so ever.

It was a scary experience though and I was surprised by how much time you spent on the level design and scripting. So far the story is thin, but otherwise it's actually not that bad. Looking forward for part 2!

(And before you upload part two, please spend more time on your translation. It's embarrassing)

Time Distortion
7 Review

Mod Review on Dec 15th, 2013 - 1 person agrees

Modern pack:

Did not try it, but it's a good idea and I'm giving you a + for your creativity.

Story:

- Amazing level design
- Custom music (and good ones)
- Extremly scary even for me with a lot of experience with Amnesia
- Challange

Negatives:

- A lot of bugs (some of them sadly ruined the gameplay)
- A lot of quests were hard to solve

Neutral:
(Neutral points does not affect the score)

- "Hey bro" and a "Stephano"? Dude come on... A serious, deep story and all of a sudden it's like a Pewdiepie story?

Bugs:

The bugs I found.

The chest and thaler thing is a great idea. Although, like any other story with this function, it is possible to Save and exit and the chest suddenly costs 0 thalers to open.

The chest refused to open so I could not finish the mixture.

I watched a few videos and it seems like some people can use the lantern in the last map while some can't.

Everytime I save and exit, the chase music from monsters starts playing for some reason even though I'm not under attack.

Conclusion:

Awesome idea, wonderful level design. One of the best I've seen for a while, but it's full of bugs and I actually did a little barrel at a door glitch to continue and then was forced to exit and change so the final map was the starting map in order to be able to finish this story.

Still, it's obvious you worked hard on this, and besides the bugs, it's great and easily deserves a 7/10. If you manage to fix the bugs, I'll gadly higher the score.

7/10 - Good
