(DO NOT VIEW ON DESURA. USE MODDB) The Attic is an Amnesia custom story.
This isn't a horror mod, its jumpscare action fest.
It started well, but after the "**** hit the fan" it went from horro game to running away from monster (at the first part the monster came directly for me after smashing the door, even thou I was hiding in far away room and had opened all the doors) and going into scripted jumpscares (poofers all over the place). The same thing continued for next few cells, then I just gave up. Even thou the map desing and story could are nice, but turning it into action jumpscare fest takes away any creepynes and actualy being scared.
I wish people would put it in front page description that its running away action jumpscare fest mod.
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.
