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.

I know this is a few years old. But i just finished KEY TO FREEDOM. i was SOOOO IMPRESSED! Astounded actually. Christopher Golden. Or as i am seeing MXDash, are there any other custom stories you have done since? I WANT TO PLAY THEM IF SO!

Sadly, no. This custom story had taken me 2 years to make, obviously during my free time and I just don't have that kind of time anymore. But I want you to know that when I started making Key to Freedom, I intended to make the very best custom story I could. And now I find myself in an interesting position: Key to Freedom is the highest rated Amnesia mod on this site (9.6/10 as I am typing this). If I made anything else after this, it can only do worse. I've spent some of my best ideas on Key to Freedom and at one point was even running out of ideas by the time I was wrapping up this custom story.

I am proud of it. And I am pleased with the positivity it received. Thanks for posting this message, I'm glad you enjoyed my custom story.

I have encounter a bug! I have Amnesia's version 1.3 installed and all that this mod requires, but this happens when I start this story:

In the first map (where you must find your way inside) something block my way to the door and the pipe. It looks like a tree, but I can't get pass it. It makes impossible to get to the door or the pipe, because they are inside it.

Could you please help? (And sorry for my bad english)

Redownload the custom story. I know for a fact that this isn't caused by Key to Freedom. If that doesnt fix it, reinstall Amnesia. if you still can't get it right, just send me a screenshot of the glitch and then we can get this resolved.

I reinstall Amnesia and redownloaded this custom story. What's weird is that when I tried again this custom story, it worked without any problems. I take break that last few days (I imported Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Assets to The Dark Descent during this brake). When I today continued this story, it worked fine until I reached outside and the end of this custom story. There I cannot get out of the mansion, because every time I go out, I get stuck at the view like this (taking begin of the custom story, because it's otherwise invisible):

There are a lot of mods out there that screws with the game and can tamper with other custom stories. What you need to do is have TWO copies of the game installed on your computer. One that has no mods that can be used for normal custom stories, and another for mods and full conversions or any other modifications that aren't isolated to just the custom story folder.

I have three versions of Amnesia on my PC. One for mods and full conversions. One vanilla copy with no Justine patch. And one vanilla copy with the Justine patch.

Ok. Thanks for advice. I was thinking that might be the reason, but I wasn't sure. I will do that.

Thanks for helping and I can't wait to see the final conclusion of this great custom story.

Umm.. I am pretty speechless.

Positives:

-Amazing map design
-Great voice acting
- Very interesting story
-Amazing scares. Not cheap
-Very , very creepy atmosphere

Negatives:

-Hated the puzzle where you had to guess the positions of the levers.

Final words:

You did amazing job. You gave me something in Amnesia what i have always been waiting for- scary and interesting storyline. Unfortunately, game crashed twice at the same spot so I gave up and didn't want to play it over and over again.

Amazing! 8/10

Where in the game did it crash? This is the first I'm hearing about this.

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!
