The answer lies only in the depths of Minneburg.

So with the release of Machine for Pigs, I'm pleased to announce that I've begun work on a new custom story! In Amnesia: A Coward's Debt, you take the role of Jean, who searches his home for answers. Unlike The Great Work, which contains in excess of thirty maps, this story contains only one large, detailed map.

I will be using assets from The Dark Descent, Justine, and Machine for Pigs, and there will be another brand new custom enemy. Justine and Machine for Pigs will not be required in order to play this Custom Story.

Please head over to its ModDB page to watch for updates!

It is a very well-made custom story in which undoubtely a LOT of effort was put. However, some parts left me scrathing my head.


For example, at the point where the cultist picks up the orb piece and then leaves to unlock a room for you to enter inside, at first it unlocked a very strange room with red lighting where I was supposed to climb up to the top by clicking the chains. Having arrived there, I found nothing of importance (there was no way to progress). I then decided to load a previous save file, and this time the same cultist unlocked a different room where there was a bridge that was lowered down by the lever mechanism.

Very nice custom story, but it did blow my head in quite many parts of it.

The Great Work is an amazing custom story and me and my friend loved it from start to finish. Awesome new monsters, chilling atmosphere, brilliant story with quality voice acting. It's clear a lot of effort went into this, and it's the best CS I've played.

Just one issue: we had the same glitch at the end where when destroying the pillar, the orb keeps dropping onto an inaccessible ledge. I couldn't find a solution either. As such, we couldn't actually finish the game, which is so annoying just at the very end! Other than that, it was perfect.

excellent custom history , thought to be playing a new amnesia , mesmerizing by the story , which involved me a lot, many details and notes to be found . The maps have few bugs and some are not very detailed , giving a feeling of emptiness in the scenario , however others are very well placed and positioned objects and excellent dynamics , great mod

I'm playing this again and I'm wondering if there is an alternate ending?

It's a freaking masterpiece! I beta test all the chapters and I was speechless when I reach the end. It's damn long as it should be, interesting, entertaining, really scary, atmosphere is top-notch! I have nothing bad to say about this one.

Everyone should try it and love it right away! One of the best Amnesia Custom Stories easily!
