A GREAT custom story! I loved it.
The plot definitely held my interest, and there were also plenty of genuine scares and creative situations.
The voice acting was nice, but just a little too low in comparison to the rest of the sound. It wasn't really a problem, though--just a minor downside--and I was still pleased to hear some custom voice acting.
I was a bit disappointed to see that I have to wait for the second chapter to continue the story, but I'm very much looking forward to that second chapter.
Overall a truly immersive, terrifying custom story!

This is an overall great custom story. Scary, interesting and very well-developed.
Since this CS is a long one, it honestly felt like an entirely new game--which is definitely a good thing! There were plenty of puzzles and scary encounters to keep me busy and on my toes, as well as an engaging plot that kept me very interested the whole time; it was a surprisingly believable continuation of the original Amnesia: The Dark Descent story.
I do have some criticism for this CS, mostly that the key-searching got a little excessive. There were certainly some creative scares and situations, but not quite enough to break up the monotony of constantly searching for keys.
The key-searching also bred another problem: predictability. There were a lot of monster encounters in this CS, but too many of them oh-so-conveniently appeared right after a key got picked up, and it got to the point of being way too predictable, which took some of the fun (and terror) away.
Also, some of the puzzles were very similar to those in the original game, which was a bit boring.
That being said, however, there were still some very creative maps, such as the spider area, and the ending "boss fight" was awesomely unique.
I'd say that this custom story is definitely worth playing, because despite some faults in the predictability, it still provides plenty of challenges and scares. There was obviously a LOT of effort put into this custom story. Well done!
