He takes care from a poor girl named Sofia, his daughter of only 11 years old and for him she is everything that he has left in his life.

Hello trackers from ModDB

Since August 2nd of 2012, when we first announced FiH, we never worked so hard in something than we did with this marvelous game that we call Amnesia: Fear in Hands. It took almost 1 entire year to unite and hire all the cast that would work on the game. The pre-production of the game started on the end of 2010, when we started writing the storyline for the game. The inspirations were many, but Divine Comedy and some very cult movies did the work pretty well. We ended by creating a story with no cliches or anything like that. We wanted to be really unobtrusive and different with all the storylines we would be creating at the moment and for the future.

On 2012, we announced Fear in Hands with a song and a poster. The song was "The Humbling River MANNACHINE REMIX", a score that was confirmed on the game. 3 years later we still think that this song is the best description of the game. The lyrics itself tells the story better than any kind of synopsis you would probably be trying to create. Because of that, the new released teaser trailer for Amnesia: Fear in Hands features this song, giving you guys a more detailed glimpse of what is coming.

Scenaries have been changed to create a more beautiful landscape and environment for the game. We went to Dublin on Ireland (where Brennard City has took inspiration) to create a deep and horrific version of it. Brennard still is a fictional city and is not trying to be the perfect copy of the capital. We also hired third-party composers like Jackson Thomaz ( & Efe Tozan ( to create the best Original Soundtrack for our horror game. The immersion that FiH will bring to you is indescribable and shall make you scare your pants off.

In the meanwhile, our best level designs are always hearing the opinion from the public here on ModDB or in our Facebook page, YouTube comments to create a tense atmosphere for the game. Putting more details on the rooms and giving a dark view to the outdoor landscapes.

Since October 25th of 2013, we have been also doing a lot of researches for the level design of the game. We've downloaded ALL the available models/props/entities packs on the Add-Ons page and started moddeling our own custom models and textures. Exporting models to HPL is a tricky adventure but we were decided to bring this to our community. Our legion of fans that are expecting to see something different from the usual in our Custom Story.

And a final announcement. By the end of this year we will release the demo of Amnesia: Fear in Hands and way before that, we will be launching a crowfunding campaign to start getting funds for the development of another game that is already in production for a long time. Most people here on the ModDB page has already heard about Canis Lupus, that is a game project being made by an entirely different team here on Blaster Lizard. During the demo, we will be gathering all the information possible that people will be doing on Facebook and in their YouTube channels during their playthroughs of the game. During that time, we will be focusing on the Canis Lupus project.

We still will be working for Amnesia to get things 100% done, but doesn't expect us to return until the final preparations for the full release of the game (the game updated, new features, bugs and glitches corrected and everything that we gathered seeing your videos and feedback).

Well, are you guys all prepared to face your most hidden fears? We are... Ready or not. We're coming.

When we release our custom story, you'll be totally free to take everything you want from it and use in your custom story, but be careful to not credit the wrong person! There still are a lot of stuff that WE are using that were made by other developers. If you are seeking to use something that you saw in the screenshots, please take a look on the Update #8: Game Credits to see the true owner of that 3D asset.

Besides that, good luck on your project! Can't wait to see it! ;D
