Your name is Violet Edwards. Your parents were killed in a horrible car accident almost twelve years prior and you haven't been the same since.
Orphaned and emotionally scarred, you've been living at the Westbridge Home for Unfortunate Youth ever since that tragic night, trying simply to exist despite lingering depression and your questionable sanity. Sometimes you think the only reason you go on is because of Josephine Bishop - owner and proprietor of Westbridge - who is always by your side like a second mother. Your life has been pretty average up to this point.
However, almost a week after your seventeenth birthday and the arrival of a strange light-haired boy, not everything at Westbridge is as it seems. You start to notice small little things - details - that you never really give much more than a first glance; that ominous feeling of being watched in the forest around the orphanage, the occasional out of place thump from behind a bookcase in the library or unfamiliar footsteps creeping past your room in the darkness of the night.
And when things suddenly start falling into place, as you uncover more of the pieces to the puzzle that is the mystery of the place you could have - at one point - called your home. A secret comes to light, a dangerous and horrible secret, and there's someone who would do anything to keep it that way.
You wonder; how does this all fit into the miserable existence you call a life? What does any of this madness have to do with your parents deaths? And what is the connection with Josephine and the light-haired boy?
Can you survive the ensuing madness or will you succumb to eternal damnation?
Okay. So, first things first; I'm a terrible terrible serial procrastinator. It's not that I don't want to work on the mod, I just keep putting it off until I have so much work to do that I don't even have time to procrastinate working on the damn thing. Now.
1) New computer
Yes, I have a new computer. One with working sound and without a fucked up monitor, or rather, a broken VGA monitor cable for said monitor (seriously the problem was that simple). At least, it isn't a desktop computer this time so I don't have to worry about all those cords and wires. So this is good news.
So, yeah... I've been enrolled in the Illinois Institute of Art since like July 14th and the first quarter is almost over (I think it ends like next week) which means I'll have time to get my fucking butt in gear and finally start working on this again. And, since I currently am taking Game Design & Game Play as a class this quarter, it means I have learned how to model objects in Maya which brings me to the custom models.
3) Custom models made with Maya
I haven't made any yet but I came across a tutorial for creating Amnesia entities in Maya and how to export them in the .dae format so that they're compatible with Amnesia. My problem is: I have Maya 2014 but to export models in the .dae format you need the openCOLLADA plugin for Maya which, according to the tutorial, is best used with Maya 2011 (though they haven't even released a plugin compatible with Maya 2014, on windows at least). But I'm going to try and explore this further because I think this knowledge will come in handy in the long run, and I am going to college to be a video game developer so practice makes perfect, right?
4) My ever improving art style
Nothing really serious other than this means that I'll have to redraw the cutscenes...again. Damn me for getting better.
5) Name change
Once again, nothing serious, just changed my name to TheDemonLilith, which really should have been done a long time ago since I've had this name since like 2012. That and I like it better. :)
And about the whole nonsense about the mod's image, I'm not changing it. 1) This is a mod and the image is simply for aesthetic. 2) "it's not your property", neither is Amnesia but no one has a problem with that. 3) I really don't give a shit. :)
