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!

Hey yo! Funny to read your comment, really!

Because the release for "A Machine for Pigs" was drawing near and me and my bro enjoyed Amnesia like no other horrorgame ever before, we came back to play a few customstorys.
Just so that we get "back" in the Amnesia-feel and to surpress any hype-feelings that could arise.

And what was it afterwards? This customstory was simply OVERWHELMING and epic, I was speecheless as f*** and full of awe!
Later I saw a Review on Gamestar ( a german videogamer-website ) for Machine for Pigs and just thought wtf happened!?!
This custom story is far superior to a Machine for Pigs I guess.
I cannot say for sure cause I have not bought it and still wait for a Walkthrough on YouTube with german client that is not annoying as hell.

But even so..., I think thats it. There is no inventory in Machine for Pigs? This factor alone repelled me from buying it like the Sun repells a Vampire.

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!
