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.

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!

I'm not sure the rating for this isn't higher because this was awesome! I was terrified and had to stop playing multiple times. There was a lot of great build up like hearing the monster go through the door you need to go through. Great build up is not something that happens in every custom story. Great job!

Im really glad I was successful in the tension building. It can be hard to know if you've got it right when you are constantly playing through it on your own, you get used to the scares :)

I played this CS...
It's awesome ! It's like it was done by Frictionals Games !
The light is perfect, the story very good, the sound too, and there's not a grunt right at the begin of the CS like many others, it really takes the time to scare you...
Just awesome :)

( sorry for the bad english, I'm french, and btw good translation )

Great mod, but I found a pretty annoying glitch.

In the cellar area where you find all the ckhemicials (cuprite, aqua regia, etc)
If you use the mixed chemicals on the lock, and then die before using the needle to open it, you respawn on the other side, and are unable to get out once you obtain the master key.
