Short, experimental, non-horror Amnesia story created as a part of student project for Faculty of Dramatic Arts (Belgrade).

The goal was to create a game that can be completed in 15 minutes or less and still tell a story. We decided to go for a poetic approach and put the player in familiar Brennenburg enviroment but kept it abstract to differentiate from classic Amnesia levels. Also, the story is written so it has two possible endings.

First version of the mod was written in Serbian language titled " Bekstvo od dnevnog svetla" and later we decided to translate it to English so our non-Serbian speaking friends could try it, therefore downloads are available in both languages with separate archives and folders.

Although authors of this mod are big fans of "Amnesia", it's mostly inspired by the game "Dear Ester" than "Amnesia" itself. Everyone who expected the horror mod will be disappointed because we've tried to accomplish the opposite. When you had some sort of personal horror in your life, and you wish to close yourself in a dark room and just be quiet that's the perfect moment to try this mod. It's made for that kind of moments when you just want to wander, not knowing where you're going and somehow if you surrender to the poetry you'll find your path.

Svaka cast svim developerima, CSovi sa ovakvim konceptom imaju dosta smisla, nema cudovista, nema dzampskera, a i dosta je kratko. Samo tako nastavite braco, pozdrav od preko Drine :)
