0 comments by MXDash on Aug 4th, 2014

There is now an easy to use walkthrough of Key to Freedom on my YouTube channel, MXDash. The reason for it being on YouTube is because it uses annotations and description links to help you jump quickly to exactly where you need to go. But the main reason why I made this is because even with the many let's plays out there, a lot of people would still get stuck or confused due to some non-linear elements found in the game, also, it's a lot quicker than watching 1 or 2 hours’ worth of gameplay.

To all who haven't played this custom story yet: Please ignore my comment below.
IT HAS SPOILERS!! I'm new here, and wasn't sure to what not to write, sorry about that. Just ignore it, I never wanted to spoil it for anyone.

Everything in this beautiful custom story was amazing, and the atmosphere was spooky and gloomy. Please make more! You have skills! I loved how you made that monster with the glowing eyes. He got me twice (the first time when I entered the room he was in where I lost my lantern, and in the end, giving me a bad ending). I did notice, though; when I couldn't find anything more important in the attic than there's a letter from Lydia, where's a picture of her, I took the elevator back upstairs, not knowing what to do. However, when I came back and tried to re-enter the room, I couldn't. I had to start over from the cemetary to get inside and get the key and finally beat the game. Was it a glitch that I couldn't get back inside, or was is something else?
Still, I love this game, I think that'll be enough horror for today. XoD
My nerves are still a little shaky from playing this. You sure know how to put in true horror in your work.

By far my favorite mod, and I've played many. First I must add that the graphics were amazing and exceeded beyond my expectations. This mod was very emotional for me. I found myself getting attached to the all the characters depicted in the story, and also you, Chris. I happened to have the developer commentary feature turned on when I began to play. You advised to turn it off, but I was genuinely interested and made sure to listen to them after I finished each individual puzzle to avoid spoilers. I enjoyed listening in on Daniel's experiences testing and voice acting, but most of all, I loved hearing everything you pitched in on in your affairs creating and developing the game. It breaks my heart to hear how little opportunity you have as a simple game developer in South Africa. I truly believe you have so much potential and unique talents to accomplish something big. If you ever end up creating a legitimate game of your own, I will definitely buy it.

Thanks for the kind remarks. I appreciate that you took the time to listen to the commentary. There have been some progress in my endeavors to get into the entertainment industry. Whether I succeed or not is really up to me. Thanks again.

Good Lord, words alone cannot express how beautiful this CS is.
I've summed it up in my review, but that doesn't even compare to how amazing this CS is.

Fantastic CS! very detailed mapping, creative puzzles, unique scares.

And of course an stunning story & voice acting.

Everything was made carefully, 10/10 is not enough in my opinion, probably the best custom story I've ever played, and I have played MANY of them.

spoiler alert:

Only thing I noticed thought was that I didnt really see the hatch on the ceiling which was near the eagle and orbs, before i turned some extra brightness on

I'd love to play more custom stories from you.

Good Lord, PLEASE, please do make more custom stories like this! The level design, the custom ''things'', the voice acting, the slow story progression, the storyline itself, the original scary events, everything! I would LOVE to see more releases from you!

amazing! Absolutely amazing! This story contains one the best level designs in amnesia modding community along with solid atmosphere, carefully placed scares and a few inventive ideas, such as lions with glowing eyes or the mysterious ghostly statue that continually follows the protagonist around the mansion as the story progresses. The mood that is created by the climate of the ancient building is mesmerizing. I strongly recommend this one to the veteran players of Amnesia!
