It is late spring of 1802, and this year has thus far been a most interesting one. Your talents and proactive efforts granted you enrollment in a high quality, yet small academy of alchemic studies, nestled deep in Prussia near Brennenburg. The academy is a small one, taking on no more than 8 pupils, run by a single teacher, Alexandander, the latest in a long line of barons of Brennenburg. Already, you have learned more than you could have possibly hoped, and the future is looking very bright. Lately however, your roommate, Gustav, has been taking lessons with the baron in secret, a mystery which seems to be taking its toll on your roommate's already-questionable stability. Rumors pass among the other students, but are little more than speculation and entertainment. That is, until one night when you are awoken by a most horrible noise. Still in a haze from your dreams, you wander the halls to search for answers, or possibly flee for your life.

Tons of custom stories for Amnesia: The Dark Descent were published on Desura during last months, and with the current trend of huge amounts of new custom stories added daily to ModDB & IndieDB, many more may be released in coming days, thanks to developers & mappers of Amnesia user-made stories.

Info for developers

What do you need to do to see your custom story on Desura?

Your custom story can be published only if
1) its releases (downloads) are added to ModDB/IndieDB
2) its release date is set to released (only released CSs are on Desura)
3) it installs to custom_stories folder or installs to its own single folder (like isolated conversions such as Parasomnia or Deterioration)

Also you can ensure that your mod profile
1) has some news articles added
2) has at least 7 screenshots uploaded to the Images section
3) promotional media (screenshots, videos) are of high quality & resolution e.g. in-game screenshots instead of editor screenshots
(otherwise your CS won't be shown on the main page of Desura and it may get less attention than it deserves)

"Complex" custom stories (total conversions) that install directly to the main Amnesia game directory could be also published on Desura but at the moment it's strongly unrecommended and a little discouraged due to many possible user problems with installing & uninstalling such stories through Desura (and without Desura).

It's simply easiest and best practice to have your mods install to their own folders without copying anything to original game folders or overwriting anything from the main game folders. Most modders and mods on ModDB do that unless specific game engine disallows hardcore modifications or total conversions. Parasomnia and Deterioration are examples that prove that Amnesia is highly moddable and isolated total conversions installing to their own folders are definitely possible.

Your custom story will be automatically published by Desura staff if your mod meets the first set of requirements detailed above - it has 1) download added to ModDB/IndieDB 2) it's released 3) installs in a simple way.

Thanks for reading, and best luck to all of you & all your projects!

The grunt killed me after I put the oil on the wheel. I respawned without the oil and the oil wasn't in its previous place where I picked it up before. I couldn't continue the story without it and I wasn't going to restart the story. But here's my review for up until then:
I enjoyed the story, it was very detailed and obviously very thought out. I liked all the notes you put down to keep us up to date with what was going on.
I loved the prison area, it felt kind of like a maze, also had a very scary atmosphere, but I felt because there were so many monsters in there, it kind of ruined the atmosphere - every time I picked up something of importance, I kinda expected a monster encounter or a scare.
I liked all the detail - though some of the rooms lacked detail and looked kinda empty (e.g in the prison area, that big room with the huge dead body on the table).
Oil/tinderbox distribution was good - I didn't find any oil at all (apart from the barrel thingo in the Sewer), and I figured early in the story that I would have to conserve my oil. Tinderboxes were well hidden and you were very generous with them.
Very well made, I enjoyed playing it!

Really good Custom Story. Very good scares, I have to admit that I really shat myself, especially at the start. Nice map design, found few unique things that I have never seen before in Custom Stories. I maybe found few of the scares kinda jumpscare(ish) in my opinion. But I think that this is overall great Custom Story, And I'd definitely recommend others playing this. 9/10
