CHAPTER 2 IS IN DEVELOPMENT! You're Gary. You recently got invited to a party by your close friend Nicholas. The party is hosted by a man named Thomas, who you hardly know anything about except that he's one of Nicholas friends. Later at the party, you're having a blast! The party is great, but maybe a little to great since you passed out after having a little to much to drink. While your asleep, thanks to some terrible nightmares, you wake up in the middle of the night, and notice that something's not right...

im a friend of sebastianMRM, went to same school an all, im a beta tester of this mod and ive played and uploaded every single version of this mod onto my youtube account (mrmtestertac0)

but im rating this 10/10 not because im his friend, but because ive seen how the story has been built,and maps created and fixed, so this is my ratings:

environment 9/10 - cozy,scary,enlightning, and a touch of mediocre..things, but still a worthy 9.

story 10/10 - weird ,different, and not really mainstream, but still a good one,its.. unique :P

scarefactor : 10/10 i dont wanna spoil anything,but if you play it you'll surely agree that anyone that arent scared after this gota have something wrong in his head..

other : a few things that makes it unique, is the voiceacting, the movement-codings in certain events, the sounds, and more 10/10

overall : 10/10 , im happy as a beta tester to see the result of this mod, and i approve this mod.

When I saw SebastianMRM making his first demo of this story, I knew that he had a potential to make this an unique and intresting custom story :)

Storyline is poor. Maps are too large and not optimized, so my FPS is very low (but it's fine in original Amnesia). Too much fake scares. Too much meaningless walking through this large maps. Could not finish it, sorry.

best mod ever played so when is chapter two coming out

Story, atmosphere, lighting, scares, puzzles, exploration. This mod does it all, and does it well. One of the best custom stories out there. Definitely deserves the 10.

I was impressed by the quality of this mod, particularly the storytelling and voice acting. The vast majority of mods either don't have voice acting or it's terrible, but Gary and Nicholas were believable and interesting; it was even better than many retail games.

Another thing I want to mention specifically is that the music in this mod was incredible, and I hope I can find some way to get the music itself, -especially- the ending theme during the credits. It all has a very creepy and fantastical feel.

If you enjoyed Amnesia at all, this mod is a must-have; it's like a sequel.

Amazing

Gary, Dark Secrets, is an awesome mod! It is greatly suggested to those looking for good fright and story-telling.

Great mod, but another one that i found focused a bit too much on trying to get you to wet your pants, and not on making a great story. This is one of a few mods that does a great job with the horror ( creepy, tense atmosphere combined with unique, effective scares), yes this mod has all that, but other than the scares, and gameplay, most other areas of the mod are lacking.

The plot is somewhat unique, but not very involved. Notes are far and few between, there aren't very many interesting revelations or plot twists and Gary (the player) doesn't really have a main objective up until right near the end. The voice acting was pretty good, and there are even a few "cut scenes" but I still felt like the story itself could have had more detailed.

Creativity was an issue. Other than a few animations, this full conversion mod doesn't really have anything new about it. Yes its got custom audio, but any mod can have that, and 95% of the content is from the vanilla game and the rest, directly from White Night. For a full conversion mod, I expect a new experience, this mod did not give me that. If you told me that this was just a basic Amnesia mod, and I didn't know any better, I wouldn't question you.

And finally, the last 30-45 minutes were tedious to get through. Not only is that the point where the gameplay is starting to get repetitive, but the developer chose that part to spawn a monster around every corner. There were at least 10 monsters in a area where there should have been no more than 2. It really got frustrating. By the time got to the end, I was just glad it was over. This ultimately is what ruined the experience for me. Even with the above mentioned stuff, i would have given this a ten because of how scary it was, and how the gameplay was very good up until that point, but that part made it impossible to justify a perfect score.

Overall, this is still an excellent mod, with some great scares, an intriguing if not complex plot and some very engaging gameplay up until the last 2 sections.

not only does this game provide a claustrophobic atmosphere but also presents an amazing story that rivals that of the original game. easily one of the best mods out there and was a lot of fun to play through. looking forward to chapter 2!
