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
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!
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.
This mod excels in every aspect:
-Character development (for the main character, at least)
The story was so heavy with emotion and chills--it wasn't conventionally scary but more focused on a dark, brooding experience with a slow build up to the finale. The scares were more on a psychological level than anything else, but it worked. Not many mods have coherent stories, to be honest, but "String" manages to tell a very compelling one.
My only issue with this mod is that is was a bit too short--I wish there were more to this fantastic experience! Still, excellent job on what we have been given. Definitely a personal favorite.
That was almost a case of death by Amnesia custom story, it almost gave me a heart attack, lol. The maps were well designed and very detailed. The voice acting was perfect. Those little whispers throughout were terrifying. The story was a little confusing but I think I figured it out. I really wish it was longer but all in all an awesome custom story.
Short and sweet is the best way to describe this mod. For such a short story the detail put into everything and the quality of this mod was amazing. The voice acting was excellent and the story was immersive as well as having a element of mystery to it. It wasn't that scary but this was a more story driven mod like white night and that was all it needed to make this a very good mod
Definitely give it a try
