String is a short little custom story made for Amnesia the Dark Decent. You play as Henry, an old king who returns to his once underground fortress. But he soon finds out that those he left behind have been waiting for him all these years. If he succeeds he might be forgiven.

Ok here it goes...

Astonishing Level Design
Brilliant Voice Acting
Disturbing Story
Quite Scary and can be very unnerving at times.


String was an amazing experience with astonishing level design and with amazing detailing put into the maps from start to finish.
I Loved every minute of that CS and I'll replay it again if I have to.
The atmosphere of the mod was purely unnerving and felt unforgiving in certain parts. The Scares were well executed and were really well placed.
The voice acting was superb and the story was very chilling.

In the end, it was an amazing modification and I really want to see another mod from these guys!

9/10 = Astonishing Masterpiece!

I'd like to start off by saying holy crap, your mapping is gorgeous. The atmospheres are beautiful and unique and provided for a new experience. I took a few minutes in the beginning just to gaze at the scene of the waterfall.

Those sounds coming from outside the closet were terrifying. I loved the fact that Richard could talk. However, I did not understand why he was a Brute. There wasn't any reason for Richard to be a monster, unless he'd been brought back from the dead...?

I feel, though, that the story left way too many questions unanswered. What was Henry trying to cover up? Was it the fact that he killed Christine? How is Christine alive and dead at the same time? Was the ghost of his past self literal, or just a figment of his imagination? Why was Henry always closing the gates (paranoia)? Why was Henry initially cruel to Philip - was it just the alcohol or was there another reason? Is Philip even still alive? What on Earth was the floating body bag in the end? Was that the statue of Henry? If not, what did it represent? If Christine really did forgive him, then why does Henry die? Why does the story end so suddenly? Why is it always the same ending despite different paths taken? In the left door of the maze, what was the purpose of the water-stairs sequence?

Perhaps it's just the writer in me, but I felt that the story was lacking lots in detail. I feel like a bit of mystery is good, but you can still leave an open ending to a story even if it is finely detailed.

Overall, I thought it was a great mod, but it could use a bit of story-work, in my opinion. Keep working hard, you've got a lot of talent!

Man, I wish every CS is this detailed and well made! From basics building up to little details. The monster talking to himself, the voice acting, the choices you have. Though it is short, I didn't mind, because I played it 4 times in a row, just to see "What if I go there or there the next time"

What an amazing little mod.

I truly enjoyed almost everything what this mod contains, mapping is just phenomenal, well designed, atmospheric enviroments, really terrifying some times, not boring stuff at all, really enjoyable to play when you progress on the maps. Still little disappointed when the endings comes and all of sudden it ended with really intense scene.
Noticed couple errors and floor flickerings, but that was pretty much for the errors and bugs or noticing things.


- Creepy sounds
- Terrifying atmosphere
- Mapping (one of the best mapping design I seen a while)
- Couple unique scares, events were really scary
- Story, really intesen and well made
- Detailing on every map


- Too short for my taste
- Too easy to figure out what to do (lacks of good and complex puzzles)
- Default music

Overall, really good job with mapping and putting few terrifying scares, whole experience was worth to play to the end!

As I said in the comment section, a very good and unique storyline with an original plot. I mentioned my negative thoughts on this as well, the 2 most important being the short length of the story and the lack of subtitles.

Nontheless, it was both very fun and scary to play, which actually made me like it a lot in the end. This, and the amazing voice acting. I think I see a lot of potential in you as a future modder, so I gave this is 10 on 10 in hopes that you will keep releasing more Custom Stories of this caliber and quality.

The level design is just outstanding, just atmospheric and outstanding that is all i have to say. Gameplay and puzzles were too easy and was short but I like the different endings. 8/10 is my final score.

This was unbelievable. For such a short mod, it told a fantastic story, featuring brilliant voice acting, great level desgin, and some very unique puzzles and sequences. Not many scares, but the atmosphere is really good. Besides, this mod was made to be more story driven.

If you have about 30 minutes to kill, and / or are looking for a more casual Amnesia mod, this should be top of your list

This custom it comes to reflection, not scares , the mood tense because it is part of the game, the story seemed to me a little confused because hasnt subtitles for the audio , but it has a short and elaborate story . Beautiful graphics , very detailed and well positioned objects , ambiance is fantastic. The game is short, but I faced more like an experience than as a simple gambling.
