You are in your house and suddently you get kidnapped by mysterious monsters. You must survive and escape from the prisons of the castle. This is my first (and maybe the last) mod for Amnesia - The Dark Descent. I hope you enjoy it, and please report any bugs you find!

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!

Make sure you have the Justine expansion. Copy the content in the custom_stories folder.

I'm not sure if you guys who make these custom stories read the reviews but I really liked this custom story. I don't like flying naked guy scares, those are just aggravating. But I really liked the atmosphere and I really liked the ending. I gave it a 10/10.

Mmmmmh... A glitch occur when you grab the ladder where there's the lurker.
If you launch the ladder on the ramp that goes to the exit, the ladder disappears.
Too many cheap jumpscares that are not scary at all.
The history is poor.
5/10... is too much for this mod.

I nearly cant even think... sooo incredibly annoying is this mod.
When I want to think about how I explain why its annoying, my mind simply stops, so damn ... "bad" is the mod.

The jumpscares... I dont care... but how its dark all the time, no matter how you use the tinderboxes - there is just not enough stuff to lit - and in the room where you have to build another "ladder"...
... and after the Brute finished me, after not disappearing for 3-4 minutes and nonstop walking into the wall... I just let me getting finished, since I couldnt avoid him comming after me...
... the worst thing in all my Amnesia-mod experiences happened.

The map loaded again when the characters "falls" into it... and he falls THROUGH the ground, there is no stage animated and he dies ever and ever and ever... and is never reaching a respawn point.

............. this mod was so annoying and then the master-assfu** came, thats just unbelievable enraging.
When this mod is supposed to **** people off, this is a masterpiece beyond comprehension of most people.
But after comming so far, in a mode without any beauty and with such low atmosphere... it just ****** me off and nothing more.

Its in fact so enraging... that I could nearly laugh.
But its just bad. I hope you fix the bug... but I wont play this mod ever again until I die. Thats such a good feeling.

I just uploaded the final part of my Let's Play for this mod! :)

Aside from the really annoying block buidling part near the end, this was definitely enjoyable. Also, please fix the doors, it is nearly impossible to open them sometimes, cause they'll just close again.
