Summary:

"Search" (name might be changed in the future) is our latest Custom Story/Full Conversion Mod project for Amnesia - The Dark Descent. It features some incredible details and very carefully planned maps and progression. We've decided to make this story an epic adventure, with a plot you would care for. We've been working specifically on greatly detailed level maps, good quality voice-acting, an interesting storyline and optional details to make the game more enchanting. It's currently being worked on, but we're not sure when we expect it to be released. There are a lot of things we want to add to the story to make it our best creation in recent time. We will be using custom models as well, which can consume some of the time for the development. The theme will be an emotional adventure, with interesting characters and puzzles that make you think. We hope you will enjoy this creation of ours when it is public.

The story right now, is that you are Benjamin Olsen, living with your family in the woods of Scandinavia. Your father had ventured outside but has yet to return home. Some time passes, and your brother Kenneth decides to go look for him. When he does not return either, Benjamin goes to investigate what might have caused them to disappear. That isn't the only thing that's out of the normal. The village nearby reports unknown, cloaked visitors that have been spotted in the woods during the night, and people are worrying since the Duke does not seem to take action.

The story develops from those basics, but will be much more immersive as the story goes on. We have plans for a big story, and hopefully a mod that will take some time to complete. Be sure to check the progress below in the screen shots. I upload new ones when I have anything interesting and new to share.

Here's a video we made about a little something we wanted to add. We had way too much fun making this xD

Amnesia Tutorials Collection

Starting a mod Tutorial 13 comments

I should note that I am making these videos on a Mac computer, though most of the tutorials should work just the same on other operating systems. This first video though, might be more Mac-dependent, as the installation procedure is a bit different from each. Also, this is done with the Steam copy of Amnesia, so the location of the files from the retail copy is different.


You'll find all of my tutorials on my YouTube channel: Youtube.com

My Twitter, if you need anything: Twitter.com

Creating Custom Entities


Video Description:

At last, here's a video introducing you to the Model Editor, and what you can do with it. I do not show how to actually make the model itself, as that is a completely different process. If you want to know what software to use, I recommend Maya 2011 (with openCOLLADA as the exporter). Supposedly you can use Blender, but I have never gotten it to work. Anyways, hope you learn something useful from this video, and thanks for watching. Have a great day!

Setting up Developer Environment


Video Description:

This works for Windows users as well, as long as you know where the files are. Here's a video on how you can enable the development environment for Amnesia on a Mac. I'm using Steam, though you can still figure out how to do the same thing using the retail version. The folder locations will be different, but the files are the same.
I hope you find the video helpful! =)

Lever Puzzles


Video Description:

I was gonna make a video on elevators but it turned out to be a little tricky, so I'll do it a little later. Sorry there was no video this week, I'll try making another soon, perhaps this weekend.
Anyways, this video is how you can make levers activate different events in your maps, and how to combine them with puzzles if you'd like. Hope you like it and find it helpful!

Water and Ladder Areas


Video Description:

Here's a small (yeah right) video on how you can make water appear in your levels, as well as how to create functional ladders. I did this as a smaller video, because I'm quite busy lately with school, as expected. I'll make an elevator video soon, not sure when.

Elevator Scenes


Video Description:

At last, I finally managed to get this video done. It took a lot of work for some reason, but yeah. Hopefully it's a good one, even though it is over an hour :s
I don't like making videos that long, since most people will probably not bother watching it, but I just had to explain it all. Oh well, thanks for dropping by at least!

I hope you won't let that thing put you down, because I can assure you this is something completely different in quality. To be fair, Last Night WAS our first ever CS, and yes it wasn't great but what can you expect?
