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.

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!

This custom story is incredibly good but i would like to finish it and a bug prevents me to do so. Can i ask for a little help? SPOILER AHEAD!!!

Spoiler: In the orb chamber when i have to strike down the wall with the drill placed on the tomb and with the two statues with the two copper pipes nothing happens....the hands of the statues start sparkling and even if i wait nothing happens. I tried to save and exit and load the area again but unfortunately then the sparkling animation also disappeared and i cant pick up any of the key-items of the puzzle. And now I'm unable to advance further in the story. I have the latest updates for the mod. I would be grateful for any kind of help.

If you know where it was from a old youtube let's play, it's not there anymore. It's location was changed in one of the patches to make it easier to find. It's right by the secret door now.

I can't use the auric hydroxide on the potash. It just keeps telling me I cant use the item this way. I've followed all the steps.
Please help.

there is still a bug in the lab room. I figured out that you have to hit the pipe with the sledgehammer but according to a Markiplier video it's supposed to explode and nothing is happening. I am sitting here in a locked room with the gas coming out

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!
