I can only remember two things. The first is that my name is Edward, and the second is a thought that I cannot get out of my head. "Do not fear the darkness." It eats away at the back of my mind. Everything, everyone I ever knew is gone. My memories have completely blurred. Simply nothing remains. Do not fear the darkness... Flashes of people, places, things I once knew... it's all gone. Forty years, or so I estimate, of living just... gone. There's an empty potion bottle next to me. It reeks of chemicals, and there's a strange viscous, pink liquid stuck to the sides.

Wow. Just wow. Tenebris Lake is by far the best custom story I have ever played. Great use of the new monsters, very scary, excellent level design and one heck of a brilliant story. I only wish it was longer! But really well done and I look forward for more custom story's from you guys in the future!
Far and away the scariest mod out there. The lighting as well as the music and sounds as well as the atmosphere all worked together top make an unbelievably terrifying gameplay experience. This is the only amnesia mod that has made me stop to compose myself frequently. The monsters were scary and well made as well as the well placed jumpscares and the detailed environments all contributed as well.
And this is very good but the reason i gave this a 9 instead of a 10 is because it seemed that in an attempt to create a horrifying experience all around, a few key elements were either lacking or missing completely. These issues were:
- lack of story(just enough for the game to make sense but nothing really concrete also the three endings were all bad and seemed rushed
- Bugs: had to exit and go back many times due to map bugs, stuff not spawning or breaking the game
- Maps were big which is usually good but they never gave me clues as to where stuff was so it took a lot of random wandering before i could figure out what to do
- lack of mementos or notes
Overall this was still a great mod and i recommend it especially for any elite amnesia players. It would probably been one of my favorites if the mod was a bit more complete Still awesome though
The level design and general atmosphere is amazing, I can't argue with that. It's a bit dark for my taste, and this mod in fact has the simultaneous problems of being too dark and having too much oil. Your options are: Lantern running, pitch blackness, or worthless stationary lights that provide no useful illumination but destroy your night vision.
There's no story to speak of (approx. one note in every second chapter and the same old torture stuff?), and the voice acting is not very good. As for the new monsters, they did very little for me. I can certainly appreciate the effort, but when the original monsters are better, I simply rather have the original monsters.
Despite these problems, I was prepared to give this mod a 7 until I reached the pillar jumping segment, and literally died 30 times in a row. Can we not have this, please? Does pillar jumping enhance the narrative or atmosphere of your mod in any way? Is it even fun? Amnesia is not a very good jumping game, and I intensely dislike parts like this. Just don't put Super Mario/Tomb raider bullcrap in Amnesia mods, ever.
