A realistic adventure with a focus on puzzles and logical thinking, based in a fictional lodge. You must uncover the secrets the place holds, all the while fighting for your life in the bitter cold of the Northern Rocky Mountains...

I have two recommendations for this mod:

1) Turn off hints. I never used them, and therefore they're the default Amnesia hints. They are not applicable to this mod. They're in your game options.
2) Use your head! Listen to the tapes you receive, and deduce for yourself what the solutions are. This mod doesn't hold your hand, and if the player gives a hint about a particular thing (for example, a door needing a key), it may not necessarily be correct; look for other solutions that seems reasonable! Remember; you're fighting for survival in an abandoned lodge, struggling to survive the cold and other dangers of the wilderness! Your character may not be as lucid as you might think. ;)

FRONT DOOR: The key for the front door is suspended on a nail above your head, if you turn around from the door and look up, you'll see it. You can climb the latticework on the outside. SECOND TAPE/CELL PHONE: The second tape (and the cell phone) are located in the same place: in the corner room, behind the door that has a wolf on the other side. You can drop down into it by climbing the stairs in the dining room and turning right outside, and following it through the stone entryway with the flickering light. To get out, move the chair from the door. THIRD TAPE: The third tape is located in the newspaper cabinets in the upstairs study, tucked in the corner of the game room. The previous tape tells you that "today is a Sunday", and that you should "read yesterday's newspaper", making it a Saturday. The calendar on the wall is marked up a sunday in 2004, so look in the drawer marked "Sat/Sun 2000-2010" and click on the newspaper pile. Once you have the paper and the key, look for the article that the paper you picked up points you to, and is mentioned in your memento- "Tues/Wed 1957". That key goes to the downstairs bedroom. FOURTH TAPE: The fourth tape is in a footlocker inside the open-air bedroom on the top floor. You can get into that room by jumping on the plant shelves along the outside of the balcony. The key for it is located in a grate in the downstairs bedroom, but you can't reach it from inside. You have to look into the grate, follow its direction (to the front of the house) and go outside and look for the matching grate on the other side- it's near the balcony supports out front. FIFTH TAPE: The fourth tape tells you he scrubbed the floors, so you have to look for a cleaner area than the rest. In the front hallway by the main double doors, there is a carpet in a clean portion of the floor. Move that carpet, and there will be a note. The note tells you to look "Where time stands still"- this means the broken grandfather clock in the broom closet near the elk head. SIXTH TAPE: This tape is hidden behind the portrait of the young girl in the downstairs bedroom. Self-explanatory.SEVENTH TAPE: This tape is hidden behind the elk head in the main lobby- open it like a door.EIGHTH TAPE: This tape is hidden underneath the large snow-covered boulder out back behind the house, over the broken fence. NINTH TAPE: This tape is hidden in the bible. Click on the bible underneath the large wooden cross in the hallway by the kitchen. TENTH TAPE/PIANO PUZZLE: Click on the guestbook for this tape. It will tell you "under [my father's] watchful eyes, play this verse" followed by 6 chords. The piano in the diagonal room where you found the cell phone is where you want to look. The appropriate keys on that piano are now playable. Play the notes in order, and a door will open in the wine cellar. WINE CELLAR: Move the big box behind the wine barrels in the back corner, near the stairs in. Behind there, there is a door. That door won't open until you play the correct sequence of notes on the piano. BUNKER ENTRANCE: This hole can only be broken by the rubber mallet, which you have to go back and get from the toolshed attached to the kitchen. LOCKED DOOR IN BUNKER: You have to break a bar off of the red-lit machinery near the blast doors in the first T-intersection hallway in the bunker. Use this bar to pry the doors open. BOARDS ON SUPPLY TUNNEL: First, move the oil barrels outside the door that is ajar. Find the master key that Edward swallowed in one of the toilets. Use that key on the door to the mess hall kitchen. Pick up the matchbox in there, and then go to the armory (with the explosives sign outside the door). Take one of the banded crates that says it's full of ammo and place it in front of the boards. Light it with the matchbox. VALVE PUZZLE: Look on the wall for the appropriate order. A few are overrun with mold and decay, but it should be wasily solved regardless.

This is an optimized version of Bitterwood Peak for improved FPS inside the lodge. I recommend using this version instead. Credit goes to Acies for noticing...

Here's a let's play for those interested : Youtube.com

First thoughts :

Amazing. Don't know what else to say. It's a full conversion full with custom models and you are very creative with the level design. The wolf appearances are unpredictable due to the lack of music when he is around. I don't know what else to say, it's a really brilliant story so far. Will come back with review and rating once I have finished it :)

Please add subtitles to the voice acting in the tapes. I dont understand a single spoken word. This penalize seriously this amazing custom story (IMHO).
I just finished this mod using your spoiler... very sad :-(
Anyway my rating it's very positive, but next time add more informations (read: subtitles). You cannot provide a guidance to the puzzles only on speech.

Never mind, I figured it out and beat it. Amazing story, it ended up taking me about 45 minutes to figure out the piano puzzle because several of the notes were extremely difficult to make out with the extremely obnoxious piano music already playing in the background, no offense by the way. I did enjoy the soundtrack, but there are certain points where you could place a trigger to make the piano stop, and possibly quiet the ambiance just a tad. I actually tried posting on here earlier that i got past the piano part, but I was at the peak of rage as it was from the puzzle and ended up breaking my phone by throwing it on the floor mid-post due to the fact how my phone decided to be a fat **** and continue to say I had already posted this post I am typing right now, again... So yeah, love the custom story, and you could actually do a part 2, due to the way you left the ending. If you want I can help out, I got some great ideas that could make for a part 2 if you even want to. But anyways, that is pretty much my review, and some comments mixed up. :P 10/10

You know, this is frustrating the hell out of me (not you). That makes two people who tell me that happened, but on my end, the music does stop when you touch the piano. It really bugs me to know that sometimes, portions of the script just stop working arbitrarily, because I actually do have it scripted so that the music does stop playing when the piano is touched. You can even look in the code for yourself. Thanks for the review, though!

Could someone please help me?! I have been stuck at the piano part for over a half hour and have made no progress whatsoever. The damn hidden door refuses to open and i have pressed every dang key in every order i possibly can. Despite listen to the tape around 15 times i cannot figure out what fahking key to press. I apologize for swearing as i usually dont tend to do so but im just so annoyed by this! Could someone tell me the order the keys need to be pressed in? Otherwise i will just kinda have to drop the custom story and never complete it. I do love the story so far and would love to finish it but the damn piano is being a bitch!!

I think this story is amazing! The house itself is so extremly well detaild and the layout is just epic!

The story is good and for once not original, which in my opinion is a good thing. I also love the scares! There are pretty few scares, but due to the fact that the wolf can sneak by on you at anytime in more or less every room is so spooky and is keeping you on the guard during the whole gameplay more or less. I even accidently ran right on to the wolf once. He took the way at the kitchen and I didn't hear him so I ran right on him :p

I also loved your cassettes and the fact that you can combine them and listen to them how many times as you like. I also loved the puzzles! I admit, some of them are a bit hard to solve. Almost too hard. I do like challanges thought.

And I agree with the others, add subtitles. I understood mostly everything, but I know alot of people don't

Not much bad I can say about it actually. A bit hard to solve some of the puzzles and subtitles should be added. Oh, and the wolf upstairs can spawn over and over again which is pretty annyoing to be honest and the story could sometimes lagg, otherwise awesome!

10/10 - Masterpiece

I appreciate the review, but making it "extreme" goes against the very nature of the entire experience I wanted people to have. Not everything is scary monsters and chase sequences.
