Story synopsis:

Your name is Michael Underwood. Along with your friend Thomas Ainsworth, you agree to some temporary work in a magnificent castle. However it's not long before things start to go wrong. One day you wake up with no memory, having consumed an amnesia potion to forget goodness knows what. You need to escape the gigantic castle, but to do that you must venture back into the cold darkness of Brackenburg.

Expect to find:

- Lengthy experience (at least 1.5 - 2 hours of gameplay)
- Detailed maps
- Limited jump scares
- A disturbing tale of human savagery

This is not only my first Custom Story but also my first attempt to create a 'mod' for any game. I didnt even know how to script before starting, but I quickly learned the basics and feel i've done a pretty good job considering im such a n00b. I didn't want to stray too far from the classic 'escape the castle' setting for my first story, my aim was to simply create a scary, well made adventure.

Despite the story being complete i'm still open to criticism and changes can be made for future versions based on any feedback I receive.

So please play my story and drop me some comments on what you think worked and perhaps what didn't.

Oh, and Justine is required so please make sure you have it installed, otherwise a lot of important stuff will break.

First of all I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who played and left feedback for this custom story. I'm happy the majority of you enjoyed my work and re-reading some of the reviews makes me really glad I put the work in to it that I did.

Therefore I have decided to commence work on a new custom story. I dont know how many people are still playing Amnesia custom stories, so I hope this new work wont go to waste, but I feel the itch to be creative so i'm going to press on regardless!

Now the reason I am announcing this here is because for whatever reason Moddb currently wont let me create a new mod page, it just throws up a blank when I try. I wanted to post screen shots and give a brief description, but as I cant I will give you guys a synopsis here:

The story is set in the late 1700's, deep in the heart of a Prussian forest lies a gigantic mansion, once owned by a large dynasty of European royals. Its current owners rarely venture from inside their safe haven, yet welcome many visitors from around the world to share with them a piece of European royal history.

A darkness hangs over this place however. Many visitors never seem to return from their visits, and there are stories of deformed creatures and vile spirits which haunt the mansion and surrounding forest. Surely these stories are nonsense? The secretive nature of the mansions occupants are bound to stir up gossip... or is something very sinister going on? What exactly happened to the royal family that owned this building anyway?

You play a man called Edward Stevenson. You decide to pay a visit to the Prussia mansion after losing contact with some good friends who were travelling around Western Europe. They were in constant contact with you until they announced their planned visit to the mansion. After several weeks of waiting your gut instinct tells something is wrong, and you set off to visit the mansion for yourself.

I hope this synopsis intrigues you! Hopefully whatever is wrong with moddb is sorted soon and I can post my first set of screenshots. Until then let me know what you think about my idea, and if anyone reading hasnt played Escape from Brackenburg yet, please do! :)

Thank you im glad you liked it :)

I didnt want it to be a quick story, I hoped to build tension instead of throwing monsters at you right away*

*the opening level doesn't count!
