Deep in the European countryside is an old, seemingly unexceptional 18th century house, sitting undisturbed for over a hundred years. A small team of researchers from a University attempted to explore the house and uncover its secrets. Search the estate to discover clues pertaining to their fate and the true nature of the house. Decide for yourself what really happened, if you can escape the madness.

I finished the game... but what was with this last desk door that required a tool, what was with the painting that required some sort of mechanic to open and at last the guest bedroom? Also why did every mannequin look at the clock?

Pretty confusing.. did I miss something? Overall really nice.

It was very good! BUT! I didn't needed to in the cellar, because I could do everything just the 1st and 2nd floors.

Hi! This is for anyone who can't combine the hammer and the chipper.

The whole point is to replace the hammer that is located in your inventory with the combined version of the hammer and the chipper. The item that is needed is the hammer only.

1. Go to My Documents/Amnesia/Main/<your game profile name>/Custom/Study of Insanity.
2. Using the Notepad, open the *latest* save file. If you do not know which one it is, simply look at the names of the files - there is time in there.
3. After opening it, press Control + f and search for: stone_hammer
4. And now, everytime you see either stone_hammer OR stone_hammer_1, replace it with stone_hammer_chipper instead. Each time after you make a replacement, or find something that should not be replaced, press F3.
5. As soon as there are no other results, you can go back to the game and load the latest save file for your custom story. Now, you should probably possess the combined version of the hammer and the chipper, plus a chipper. VoilĂ !

Of course, this issue could be solved in many ways, and I, unfortunately, don't have any programming skills to do it in a more elegant way. All in all, I managed to do it thanks to trial and error. I hope it will work for you as well! :)

P.S. This could work for other custom stories too, simply search for the folder that contains the save files for your custom story.

This really is a great mod, one of the few playable custom stories that actually keeps the spirit of Amnesia. No horrible linear hallway levels, poorly done voice acting, teleporting statues, or hallucinated monsters.

Darn, this is a really scary mod. I really hope we see more from you, Bahumot. I'm not sure though, it has been almost 2 years without activity.

How find mechanism for painting in hallway? I've searched for hours and can't find anything. I think I've done everything else up to that point and can't move forward until I find the mechanism.

Thanks!

hey there. this was an absolutely well made story with creepy atmosphere. i liked the cellar part for the most and that room where i must have made the door barricaded. i thought the shelf will stop the grunt but that did not, and that mistake almost caused my death.. if you could put some new monsters (dog maybe) to the cellar part, before i found the lantern, that could be a more horrific experience :D to say something about bad things (not much).. there was emptiness in many corridors and that bothered me sometimes. by the way this was the best story i played in the last 2 weeks thank you :) 9/10
