The year is 1792 and Conrad Saul (You) have been sent to Castle Gordianus because the village has been attacked by bandits for several days, and the Knights from Castle Gordianus were supposed to protect the village from any potentional threats. But the Knights hasn't been seen for weeks... where are they?

Tons of custom stories for Amnesia: The Dark Descent were published on Desura during last months, and with the current trend of huge amounts of new custom stories added daily to ModDB & IndieDB, many more may be released in coming days, thanks to developers & mappers of Amnesia user-made stories.

Info for developers

What do you need to do to see your custom story on Desura?

Your custom story can be published only if
1) its releases (downloads) are added to ModDB/IndieDB
2) its release date is set to released (only released CSs are on Desura)
3) it installs to custom_stories folder or installs to its own single folder (like isolated conversions such as Parasomnia or Deterioration)

Also you can ensure that your mod profile
1) has some news articles added
2) has at least 7 screenshots uploaded to the Images section
3) promotional media (screenshots, videos) are of high quality & resolution e.g. in-game screenshots instead of editor screenshots
(otherwise your CS won't be shown on the main page of Desura and it may get less attention than it deserves)

"Complex" custom stories (total conversions) that install directly to the main Amnesia game directory could be also published on Desura but at the moment it's strongly unrecommended and a little discouraged due to many possible user problems with installing & uninstalling such stories through Desura (and without Desura).

It's simply easiest and best practice to have your mods install to their own folders without copying anything to original game folders or overwriting anything from the main game folders. Most modders and mods on ModDB do that unless specific game engine disallows hardcore modifications or total conversions. Parasomnia and Deterioration are examples that prove that Amnesia is highly moddable and isolated total conversions installing to their own folders are definitely possible.

Your custom story will be automatically published by Desura staff if your mod meets the first set of requirements detailed above - it has 1) download added to ModDB/IndieDB 2) it's released 3) installs in a simple way.

Thanks for reading, and best luck to all of you & all your projects!

This is happening to me too. When I start this story it immediately sends me into a pitch dark free fall and then it says that I have to carry on over and over. This is a major bug.

- Nice and very beautiful made environment.
- Only the very long travelrouds annoyed me a little bit.
- And there should always be the option to be wasteful with tinderboxes and light a whole corner, corridor or stuff, but some places just lacked the candles or torches.

You need to find a way to get out of there. It would be a spoiler warning if I told you here, but there is a way to get back after getting everything you need in there. The storage is at another location
