Synopsis: Mr Wilkinson, the headmaster of Darwin Institute for Misbehaved Youngsters, has presented to me a challenge, in response to my most recent efforts of escape. He promises me that if I accept and complete the task he will allow me to leave the Institute. All I need to do is find a key. A key that will unlock a safe deposit box located at the local bank. The key, of course, is situated in the old mansion. He won't tell me why the place has been sealed off and abandoned or how I will be getting inside. But one thing's for sure, I wont let this opportunity pass me by! FEATURES: - Original Story - Voice Acting - New Puzzles - New Threats - Alternative Endings - Developers Commentary - Works with and WITHOUT Justine patch

Hey, I started a Let's Pay of this Story on my youtube channel:

I gotta say there is some stuff I haven't seen in a Custom Story before in there. Can't wait to finish it :)

There are seriously not many custom stories out there that are well done because people are just trying things out or being silly. But once in a while, every half year or so, you'd get a story that is so well done that it shouldn't even be an Amnesia custom story. No need for drumrolls, because this is one of those stories.

I have never seen so much creativity and diversity in a mod until I came across this. You just thought of entirely new and intuitive ways to expand your world (in this case, the castle) in the best ways possible. The graveyard kind of reminded me of the Lord of the Rings with the greenish hues that would begin to take over the screen. In fact, I would say something about every area in this story but it'd take far too long to write.

Long story short, everything about it is perfect and I had a lot of fun playing it :D . I agree with Burnt, you should definitely go into game development. This would be great to put on your reel to show off to employers. Something like this totally seeps with true grit! I hope to see more from you soon. Thanks for the play :)

Thanks. There is quite a lot of subtle things that most people don't notice, like the change in lighting that you just pointed out. I'm happy that you enjoyed this Custom Story as much as you did :) This is one of the reasons why I make these mods: For people's enjoyment. Thank you for the kind remarks.

Would definitely recommend this Custom Story to everyone. Love the custom voice acting whilst reading one of the notes, loves the atmosphere throughout the game but still haven't accomplished it since I'm really stuck on the part where the coloured orbs are but any ways I'll find out how to figure it out. Me and my friends were playing this and it scared the !@#? out of us, the attic scared us and once we've came out the attic there were eyes looking and we just literally !@#? ourselves. Great job and I'll- I mean we will hope you would make more! Thank you.

Hey quick question! Do you know where this stores the saves? I'm doing a Let's Play of this and I now have access to a much more powerful machine so I'd like to switch the mod and my saves over there for better quality. I don't want to have to replay everything and almost have over 9000 heart attacks again lol. I've checked pretty much every folder that saves could be stored in but I can't find it. I just want to transfer the save to a flash drive or my external so I can have it and pick it up again.

It is in the "My Documents" folder.
"C:\Users\(user name)\Documents\Amnesia\Main\(user name)\custom\Key to Freedom (version 1.2)"
This is for windows mind you. Can't wait to see the playthrough :)

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!
