(DO NOT VIEW ON DESURA. USE MODDB) The Attic is an Amnesia custom story.
Not a bad at all. Monsters not spawning again after death was a bit meh, and I had hard time to stick with the story, especially after arriving the village and onward. Some scares were horrifying, although the ones which repeated them self (flying barrels and naked-man-flying-loudly-out-from-closet in the village) were more annoying than scary. But the work put on the village was awesome. All doors were not just jammed, the makers had really put an effort on that part of the game. Just before end my Amnesia crashed, complaining about missing HPS-file. I never got to see the ending. But still, a good custom story, I warmly recommend it!
Allright.. The all famed Attic custom story!
You guys should have kept it at part 1, cuz my god you screwed up.. Especially chapter 2 sucked balls..
I would like to review as a whole but chapter 2 is so ugly bad that it drags the story to the ground.
Cpt1: Decent story, nice level design, good build up and tension. Enjoyed it till the last part. It just didn't make that much sense anymore.
Cpt2: What were you thinking? O, cpt1 was a succes let's make a second chapter in jiffy people will like it anyway. Ok here we go. Level design utterly simple, boring and no atmosphere. The village is terrible, there are invisible walls everywhere and from here on it's just; Find a key open the next door etc. Spawn monster when key is optained and run like hell. Besides the stupid cheap (12 year old) jumpscares, the mod is uninteresting as ****. No good story followup, no puzzles, no tension.
Cpt3. It was ok, not my cup of tea anymore and I just wanted to get the story over with. It was much better than 2 but clearly not as good as 1. Over all, I did not enjoy this custom story as much as I hoped.
The only reason i give this custom story a 10/10 must be because i really loved it.
If you like a good and pretty long custom story, with not to much super scary moments, more like entertaining scary this is the story for you!
Another thing which is good, is that there isn't too much story in this, and why isn't it bad? Well because of the fact that if the story is too detailed or to long, you loose track or interest in following the story. The story is simple with a decent amount of notes to find to figure out the story. Also includes "cinematic" scenes.
Puzzles in this game is almost none, which i find rather good, because each time i find a story with a puzzle, i must stop playing to watch let's plays to find out HOW THE F**K the puzzles are ment to be solved.
You won't get lost in this story which also is a bonus.
i recommend playing this!
