Well, this is my first Custom Story.

I have been working on this near a month but kept it completely quiet, only a few friends and testers have known about this.

I created this custom story for the actual story-line, not for the scares (Even though I did input scares, can't have an Amnesia Custom Story without scares, right?)

Every Scare relates to an actual event within the Character's life and / or his family history. The scares can either be past or present.

Anyway. I hope you enjoy the Story and I hope to make more chapters.

0 comments by Kielnastra on Dec 3rd, 2012


My computer, after the few short months I have had it, finally decided last Wednesday to break the Nvidia GTS 545 that I use inside my computer.

Luckily, my computer is still under warranty from Alienware Dell (YES!) and they sent me out a replacement which I easily fixed in no time.. but wait.. there is still a damn problem!

I got more graphical errors with black screens and just a cursor! When I did get this problem sorted, the computer ran EXTREMELY slow with System Crashes every 10 minutes! Damn it got annoying.. REALLY annoying. So in the end I had to do a complete system restore which removed all the files for the Custom Stories.. HOWEVER!

I was able to enter safe mode and save Chapter 3 onto my flash drive so everything is safe! As soon as I download Amnesia again along with the map editor and Geany I will work hard to release chapter 3 ASAP! Maybe even on Christmas day!

So that is all the news I have for you guys!

You know. Seeing all these amazing comments along with a great rating and such an awesome community backing me up, I really feel like I am part of a special group of people. Kind of like the big YouTubers but this feels better!

Thanks, Gaviao. I am working on chapter 2 which is coming along nicely. The second chapter will be much better than the first, that I can assure everyone.

Sadly I wouldnt know that at all. I bought Amnesia through steam so I have a custom stories folder. Have you checked your redist for an actual custom stories folder? But other than that, I wouldn't know but I will attempt to figure out how to make the second chapter work for non-steam bought amnesia aswell as steam bought.

If you use retail, like me, you need to go into the redist folder, into the custom_stories folder (if you don't have it, make it) and paste the folder from winRAR or winARCHIVER into the custom story folder

The Idea at that point is to have it so the player dies. Sadly this cannot happen if you are outside that corridor. I am currently working on chapter 2 but once it has been finished and the file uploaded, I will be remaking the first chapter in sense of changing map slightly and better scripting.
