You wake up in a forest without knowing why. You are injured and it's cold outside so you decide to go into a mansion nearby. You recognize the house for some reason but you can't tell if it's from a dream or memories.
It was pretty good, liked the atmosphere, but what I hate was darkness almost always, really few places was bright ones.
- Story understable
- No sound monsters
- Couple nice puzzles
- Lack of original puzzles
- Nothing amazed mapping just average
- Repetitive and sometimes pretty boring
Overall it's simple, average custom story.
A nice story, which does not need tons of notes to understand it, plus some cool puzzles. And the monsters are well implemented. The fact that all monsters are silent, and does not reveal themselves with obvious music, makes it much better when it comes to atmosphere. A fun fact though, is that I did not meet a single monster, except the water lurker, which you are supposed to encounter anyways. But the knowledge that a monster could be right outside the door gives a much better Amnesia feeling.
Though, the story isn't perfect. Because if it was, I would have given this 10/10. Like I think the story is a tad too dark. Yes, this is Amnesia, so this is really not a big issue, as Amnesia is a dark game. But I found it hard to see in some places, as the story had few tinderboxes and oil. The creator said at the beginning that it would be little of light sources, so this is no minus, but in my opinion, I think a few lamps could have been lit from the start, just to give a little more light, at least in the cave at the end and the area with the water lurker. Also, about the water lurker, I had a small issue on that one, as the water was too high. i could not jump on most of the boxes, only the small ones and the barrels. The last small issue is that it could've been a bit longer.But that only proves that the story was good, since I want more of it. :3
Might be annoying to know that the only issues are that, but it is very close to 10/10, no ******** monster placements or puzzles that are not given a tip for what to do. Neither does it feel boring.
Also, an extra plus for making me **** my pants and laugh at the same time when the dead grunt peeked out from the corner. I literally stood there for 10 second, wondering if I should dare come closer, while at the same time laughing.
I'll gladly give this 9/10 in total!
Wonderful mapping, Decent puzzles and good dark atmosphere. The story was also okay but would be a bonus with voice acting. Even though it was abit short the story was interesting. Did not like the random water monster there what was the reason and purpose of it? Overall it was a well made story.
