NOTE: Obscurity requires the Justine Expansion Pack!

Story:
Upon returning to the village you grew up in as a child, you discover that it's empty. Doors are boarded up, bloodstains soak the ground, and a strange aura lingers in the air. What happened and why has everyone disappeared? Crescent Village holds a secret, and it's up to you to uncover it.

Features:
- Chilling atmosphere
- Frightening horror
- Complex and deep storyline
- Richly detailed environments and lighting
- Quality Voice Acting
- Custom Monsters

Info:

Obscurity is a project I've been working on relentlessly for about a year now, and I'm proud to finally release it! As you can probably tell, this is a serious custom story. You will not find pointless jumpscares, all of the horror will make sense and deliver a quality horror experience. To add to this, none of the monsters in Obscurity are from the original Amnesia or Justine, all of them are custom. You won't see these monsters in any screenshots, as I intend to keep their identities a surprise. (Please note that I didn't make these monsters, but they are from various resources that are credited at the end of the game.)

Anyways, feel free to make playthroughs/walkthroughs of Obscurity, just make sure to put a link to this page in the description of your video.

Enjoy!

UPDATE: I'm planning on releasing an update soon. Please PM me any bugs/glitches you may have found throughout the game. In addition, I would really like to know if the proper music was playing for you guys in the ending sequence. In some playthroughs I've watched, the monster theme keeps playing until the credits. This is NOT supposed to happen, so PLEASE let me know what was playing during the epilogue for you. This would really help me. Thanks!

Unfortunately I've had to delay Obscurity by a few weeks. I've been extremely busy lately and haven't had the time to wrap things up. Of course, this means I also have the additional time to go back and make sure things are consistent in quality. The new release date is December 30th 2012. Thanks for your support!

I just started playing this story, and it feels very well made and scary, but I just wanted to let you know of a few problems ive encountered so far (SPOILERS AHEAD):

First of all the music in the village doesn't loop and just cuts off after a bit, its a little jarring, but not a huge deal. However a major problem I encountered was getting stuck behind a wardrobe in the Inn (in the last room). I noticed there was a misplaced spider web, I walked towards it then got sucked through the back of the wardrobe. Very game breaking as the autosave made me start from there. Normally I would have had to restart the story as there are no other save points but as I know how to make custom stories I did a tiny edit in the custom story settings file and made it so the story starts on the Inn map, so i could continue. However for someone who doesnt have this knowledge this bug could be very frustrating.

Another minor issue was in one of the houses (the house with the safe) there is a wall that sucks objects into it, I threw a box at the wall and it got sucked in, I threw something else and it got sucked in and catapulted into the next room! Very weird, but again not really a major bug.

But apart from those things im having a good time, monster chases are super intense, the voice acting is very good and the crypt section is at the same standard as the prison in TDD. So very good job, hopefully the story will continue to impress.

Thanks! I will take a look at the bugs you described, but there is one major bug I'm in the process of trying to fix at the moment. If I ever get that one fixed then I'll include these in that update.
