Amnesia: The Dark Descent - Dead Spirits

- is a Custom Story I made completely alone, wich was released on August 17, 2012.
This was my very first Custom Story, I hope you rate it fairly :)

The Story:

Bernard Cornell, the man who owns the Cornell Resident.
The Cornell Resident has been inherited through many generations, but it hides many unpleasant secrets.
Your friend, Harry, is stuck to live at the Cornell Resident for his study, but why he didn't choose
the old library nobody knows.

Your Cousin Drake also lives there for his study...
Why would people study at a resident? Is there a greater amount of knowledge? Or do they provide costless meals?
Your friend Harry seems to be an assistant to Bernard Cornell.
It seems they are testing a drink on humans, innocent humans or guilty ones?
Will you ever find out whats going on?

What happend before the mod starts?:

You live at the Cornell Resident, with your cousin Drake, you have- or more rightly said: HAD a friend named Harry who lived as a guest in the Resident.
When you go to your friend's room, he's not there. When you seek Cornell, he's not there.
You don't seem to find anyone.
You remember something Harry said about a drink, a drink that would cure your sanity loss, you need to find that drink, you may be going insane.
Maybe you're just seeing things, or is everyone really dead?

First of all I would like to thank everyone who played this Custom Story once again.
I have received alot of good feedback telling me what needs to be improved and so on.
I would like to tell you all that I am currently working on another Custom Story.
This Custom Story will be the SEQUEL to Dead Spirits!
Oh, and the sequel will be divided into 2 Chapters. (Chapter 1 made in The Dark Descent, and Chapter 2 made in A Machine For Pigs.)
For some people the Story in Dead Spirits was not clear enough and got off track a bit, And yes it did.
I have had a hard time re-thinking the Story before release, So it was a little rushed.
But in the sequel there will be clearer visions on the Story and the actual meaning of progressing.
But this is all I will say. ;)

I have learned alot about creating Custom Stories so there will be better scripting on my upcoming projects, aswell as better level design, better details and very importantly more testers.
And as you may know A Machine For Pigs is getting closer and I will need to learn a bit there too.

Now I would like to once again thank you all for your support.

one of the best amnesia mods ever
I loved the special stuff, like the climbing in the prison, the cannon and the ghost

I'm enjoying it so far, but I can't find the key to the locked door in the cells of the prison celler

NightSshadeGaming - A little let's play I made, hope you enjoy.
The custom story itself isn't half bad, I quite enjoy it :D Some good mapping. Cannot comment on the plot yet since I don't know what's it about, but I guess I'll figure that out later in the game :) Gonna finish it and come back with review/rating.
Cheers :)

The name of this mod doesn't make sense, how can spirits be dead?

It was a good story, but it have so many bad points... The mapping wasn't very good - it has a lot of glitches; the storyline was repetitive and the scares were terrible and non-sense. This story was really rushed dude. I won't complain about the english mistakes because i'm not a native speaker, so i make a lot of mistakes too. But anyway, you should check the original Amnesia and see how to create a good and scary atmosphere (AVOID THE NON-SENSE JUMPSCARES, IT BREAKS THE ATMOSPHERE). If this was…
