NOTE: Obscurity requires the Justine Expansion Pack!

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.

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


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.

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!

Hey ElectricRed, I was wondering if you could help me out. I have Amnesia on disc and Desura works well with it. But, when I downloaded Obscurity, and launched it, it game me an error saying I needed the "Justine Expansion". Can you help me? Softcore Justine doesn't work, so I am very confused...

Thanks in advance!

So you don't have Justine installed? Obscurity requires the expansion pack or it won't work properly. Getting Justine for your version of Amnesia shouldn't be too hard, I'm sure there are some tutorials.

So I installed the newest Amnesia pack with Justine expansion and the game is still saying it does not show up. I've been searching the web for hours and nothing helps. Please help. Sorry for bothering you.

I don't know what the problem is, try redownloading Obscurity. If that doesn't work, then you must have installed Justine wrong, and you need to get support on the Frictional Games forums.

One of the best storylines I have ever played on an Amnesia CS. The gameplay flowed very very well, and the custom monsters worked nicely. I'd love to see more from you!

Thanks! I'm in the planning stages of another project, but don't hold your breath because I'm not starting on it until after A Machine for Pigs comes out. :)

Truly one of the creepiest experiences in any custom stories yet!

Shortly it was unforgattable experience and everyone should try this one, you will not regret it :)

Now I see why you work on this over an year, it was worth it ^^
