You are Charles Longden, an archaeologist studying Minneburg, a German castle abandoned due to recent cave-ins. You are sleeping late one morning when you are shaken awake by a tremor running through the castle. There is no sign of your partner, Jane. Where has she gone?

The answer lies only in the depths of Minneburg.

5 comments by Damascus7 on Sep 27th, 2013

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!

I had a problem when I got to the climax of chapter 7. Once I'd destroyed the pillar, the orb kept dropping onto in inaccessible ledge near the walkway. I couldn't find a way to reach the orb. Is there a way to do this that anyone knows of? Thanks,

At the end of chapter six I only have three pedestals for some reason. Aren't there supposed to be four? Is this a bug perhaps, or am I the only person to encounter this?

Those cultists scared the crap out of me. What language do they speak in? Or is it untranslatable gibberish?

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!
