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!

I had a dream last night, and woke up thinking I had a great idea to improve a scene in this mod. Then I remembered there are no scenes where you're in the middle of a huge desert trying to shoot a bunch of guys on horses with a rifle.

Hello! I love your story, but i just finished the water monster and got to the spot where you have to run and pull two levels, and suddenly i'm unable to run? It's bizarre. My health & sanity aren't even low so don't know why its not letting me run in this entire area. Would appreciate any feedback on why this is happening because I really love this story and want to continue. :(

If you started going slow after dropping out of the ceiling, you have to use a laudanum to heal yourself. There's a spare one in a chest near the angel statue if you have none left.

There are a lot of customs of Amnesia, and I have to say that this is the best: the story it`s amazing, it`s very entertaining, the puzzles are perfect, the need for keep the oil for your lantern in every moment, the differet types of ways, turn this Amnesia in a masterpiece. And I dare to say that it`s much better than the original Amnesia.
The best:
After of all I said, the best for me were the two antagonists, although they are also the Shadow, Kaernk, and servants Grunt and Brute, there were made two others enemys: Intelligencer (my favourite), and Remnant. And the job made behind them with their voices (especially Intelligencer talking in Latin), moves and sounds.
And the three different endings (Bad, Normal and Good).
The worst:
Some bugs wich were not corrected.
Conclusion: It`s a great game and I have to say it. It`s a great Work.

I gotta say, that was a pretty amazing custom map. I loved a majority of the story and the epic custom models. However, there were quite a few areas where I became very confused or stuck to the point of restarting the game or looking up an internet guide. There were simply not enough momentos to guide me.

I also felt that there were not enough "little spooks", such as the simple events like the books falling over in that one library room.

Overall though, it was a fantastic custom story!

I have encountered a bug and I don't know what to do about it. Maybe anyone can help me?

In the library the notes and keys won't have a text / description anymore. Momentos won't work either.
Is there anything I can do about this? I've played this custom story before and it has never happened to me.
I wanted to play this again, but I can't go any further with this :(

I have a question, is all of the new stuffs is copyrighted? Like if we make our own custom stories, can we use them?

The monsters are off-limits, but a lot of the content is free-to-use from Frictional forum users, or was taken from Machine for Pigs. Everything that's custom is listed in the credits, and are for the most part okay to use.

I wouldn't do it since the recent happenings. Also because of this community.

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!
