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!

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?

This was a really good story, however I do feel that it leaned a bit more toward quantity over quality. The farther into the game you progress the more the areas seem to be basic outlines without details.

lol that bit? it took me only 2 attempts. you go to the back and quickly throw the boxes and barrel, then push the big box away and open the door. this is the only door, the other parts are running through, if you see it then turn to another hall until the real escape door, run up the stairs, and youre pretty much done

Look it's not that hard, I have died at that part like 6 times but I tried and tried and finally did it. Dude it's worth it to continue! This mod is very amazing, never seen anything like it in any other custom stories I've ever seen! I recommend you to do it again, it's not Damascus's fault, you just need to keep trying.

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!
