Focus mainly on what you think is going on. Also, take your time, it's not long at all. Keep in mind that the focus of this is trying a new way to give information to the player (you), not scare an audience, so do try to immerse yourself.

Amnesia v1.2 (Justine) patch is required.

I can't get past the ladder part (where you go up the spiral staircase). I assume I need to open the trapdoor, but it won't let me. Any advice?

That was one of the most interesting custom stories I have ever played. I also traveled the world in one day and sampled women.

Are you going to make another Icarus? The prelude was good enough to be an entire custom story. :P

This is my favorite CS tied with 24 Hour Amnesia. Everyone says it's short but it felt long to me. Probably because I immersed myself in the really beautiful environment you crafted. Every other CS I finish I immediately delete. But I can't bring myself to delete this one. Thank you for this! <3

Ignorant people don't have the patience for art in a simplistic design. It's not meant to be a shitty map meant for PewDie, it's unique in its atmosphere and people can't wrap their heads around it. Don't be mistaken by the reviews. For a short story, it has a better story than most of what is on the forums today. And it is NOT MEANT TO BE SCARY. Don't give it a bad review because it wasn't all jumpscares and crappy mapping. I'm getting tired of all the great campaigns being neglected and all the…
