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!

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.

Thank you, Dudeman75! I've had a lot of feedback with the same comment, so I have taken this on board and made the second chapter less confusing.

Yeah. After watching a few people I can understand how it got confusing how it went back and forth between areas. But now I have clear ideas in my head so chapter 2 shouldn't be as confusing as the first.

I actually enjoyed it a lot, nice job. I think yet it needs more variety on the maps and puzzles. Nevertheless amazing work !

Thanks! If you look at the Screenshots, I am attempting to do more variety but sadly I am still new to developing and I do sometimes find scripting quite hard and frustrating. I will be adding more puzzles into the second chapter and currently the first map (Exc. The intro) is quite long.
