You will find yourself in a role of Benjamin Kerrigan. Acquiring a new job as a butler, he is in going on his brother’s previous position. But what is the real reason for that? Where is his brother and why hasn’t he reply to any of Benjamin’s letters? It is up to you to help him and find out what happened. While searching for clues you’ll unravel the secrets of a mysterious castle and his owner.
Upon loading saves (my own/CS autosaves), events weren't activating and key items weren't allowed to be used as intended.
In order to finish this custom story (which I finally did), I had to beat it from start to finish without stopping. If I was stuck in geometry/other hiccups in the Amnesia engine, I had to start over to avoid this.
The update seemed to simplify things (mostly removing keys and encounters), and the majority of the puzzles weren't all that impressive. Level design was alright, ranging from decent to above average. In future, I would avoid forcing players to advance (I'm referring to the personal chambers), as it takes away from the feeling of having choice. It'd be better to rely on mementos if you feel that hints are necessary in order to progress, if that's the issue.
As for the voice acting:
- Terrible audio quality -> Invest in a better mic
- I understand that it is not on a professional level. Therefore, by attempting to add voice acting without the ability to do it well drags down the overall quality of the story, making it difficult for the player to feel immersed/drawn into your CS.
Honestly, it'd be better to completely remove it and leave it as text, avoiding extra details involving emotion(screaming, crying, etc.) in the subtitles. Under this circumstance, the player, if they care about the plot of the CS, should be able to form their own emotions by following the plot, reading every note to piece it together, if need be.
The horrifying experience: I didn't feel like I was in any immediate danger, and there weren't really many events that built suspense/really pinned me into quick-thinking situations.
This Custom Story is by far the greatest one ever made!
