This custom story has been a massive project, and creating it has definitely been a learning experience. This mod contains more maps than any other custom story released so far (that I know of) and 3283 total lines of hps code. Total game time is estimated at a little over an hour, depending on how well the player does solving the puzzles. That said, I hope you enjoy my mod! PLEASE NOTE: This mod does require the Justine update.

Tons of custom stories for Amnesia: The Dark Descent were published on Desura during last months, and with the current trend of huge amounts of new custom stories added daily to ModDB & IndieDB, many more may be released in coming days, thanks to developers & mappers of Amnesia user-made stories.

Info for developers

What do you need to do to see your custom story on Desura?

Your custom story can be published only if
1) its releases (downloads) are added to ModDB/IndieDB
2) its release date is set to released (only released CSs are on Desura)
3) it installs to custom_stories folder or installs to its own single folder (like isolated conversions such as Parasomnia or Deterioration)

Also you can ensure that your mod profile
1) has some news articles added
2) has at least 7 screenshots uploaded to the Images section
3) promotional media (screenshots, videos) are of high quality & resolution e.g. in-game screenshots instead of editor screenshots
(otherwise your CS won't be shown on the main page of Desura and it may get less attention than it deserves)

"Complex" custom stories (total conversions) that install directly to the main Amnesia game directory could be also published on Desura but at the moment it's strongly unrecommended and a little discouraged due to many possible user problems with installing & uninstalling such stories through Desura (and without Desura).

It's simply easiest and best practice to have your mods install to their own folders without copying anything to original game folders or overwriting anything from the main game folders. Most modders and mods on ModDB do that unless specific game engine disallows hardcore modifications or total conversions. Parasomnia and Deterioration are examples that prove that Amnesia is highly moddable and isolated total conversions installing to their own folders are definitely possible.

Your custom story will be automatically published by Desura staff if your mod meets the first set of requirements detailed above - it has 1) download added to ModDB/IndieDB 2) it's released 3) installs in a simple way.

Thanks for reading, and best luck to all of you & all your projects!

Holy sheeeeeettttt!!! The name of this mod alone made me a little creeped out. But this mod delivers on scares as well if not better than the original game! If the mod can do that, its a true testament to the guy who made this in little over 3 months time!!

freaky episode. indeed trip itself, reminds me of Black Plague ending a little. overall great story with a lot of depth. but this "ground" monster, instead of water, was just brutal! in one moment I was like "that's it, I am done with it", but barely cautious and with complete insanity I made it!

well goodnight! :-)

Wow. What a "trip", so to speak. This story is very harrowing and the enemy encounters feel completely different from how they do in Amnesia, which is a good thing (that's not to say Amnesia's encounters are poorly done at all). The scripting is top notch and the writing is brilliant -- and nearly completely free of the grammatical and spelling errors that plague just about every Amnesia mod. I think I only counted one error ("consciences" where should have been "consciousnesses", I believe it was). I literally proclaimed, out loud, "Wow, what an ending" when I entered the final room and saw what was coming based on the information so far. This is easily the best Amnesia custom story I've ever played. It totally showcases the underappreciated capabilities and potential of the HPL2 engine. Showcases them with bigass marquee lights and a flowing red carpet. I want MORE from you, Homicide.

Not really a fan of pop-out scares... so it was an OK story. The atmosphere wasn't really scary. It was more of a "is there something around that corner" feeling.

Hey, I've played about 20 minutes of the custom story and it seems great but after I lead the footsteps to the fountain and pass out, I crash at the loading screen. Do you have any idea why this would be?

It's because the next map uses models from the 1.2 Justine patch, so if you don't have that installed it will crash. :(
