Discover the mysteries of "Living Machine"... "It is the year 1887, you and your wife Nina have been invited to Lord Harris's feast, which was going to happen inside of his manor at the countryside of Norfolk. The main person of that event, Lord Harris of Norfolk, was widely regarded as an eccentric and odd engineer due to his researches on steam powered machines and engines. On that night, 19th of October 1887, after several hours of feasting you felt drunk. You made your way to your guest room, you've laid on the floor and fell asleep... " What's waiting for you after you wake up? Or will you ever wake up?

Tons of custom stories for Amnesia: The Dark Descent were published on Desura during last months, and with the current trend of huge amounts of new custom stories added daily to ModDB & IndieDB, many more may be released in coming days, thanks to developers & mappers of Amnesia user-made stories.

All Amnesia custom stories published on Desura so far:

Info for developers

What do you need to do to see your custom story on Desura?

Your custom story can be published only if
1) its releases (downloads) are added to ModDB/IndieDB
2) its release date is set to released (only released CSs are on Desura)
3) it installs to custom_stories folder or installs to its own single folder (like isolated conversions such as Parasomnia or Deterioration)

Also you can ensure that your mod profile
1) has some news articles added
2) has at least 7 screenshots uploaded to the Images section
3) promotional media (screenshots, videos) are of high quality & resolution e.g. in-game screenshots instead of editor screenshots
(otherwise your CS won't be shown on the main page of Desura and it may get less attention than it deserves)

"Complex" custom stories (total conversions) that install directly to the main Amnesia game directory could be also published on Desura but at the moment it's strongly unrecommended and a little discouraged due to many possible user problems with installing & uninstalling such stories through Desura (and without Desura).

It's simply easiest and best practice to have your mods install to their own folders without copying anything to original game folders or overwriting anything from the main game folders. Most modders and mods on ModDB do that unless specific game engine disallows hardcore modifications or total conversions. Parasomnia and Deterioration are examples that prove that Amnesia is highly moddable and isolated total conversions installing to their own folders are definitely possible.

Your custom story will be automatically published by Desura staff if your mod meets the first set of requirements detailed above - it has 1) download added to ModDB/IndieDB 2) it's released 3) installs in a simple way.

Thanks for reading, and best luck to all of you & all your projects!

Enjoyed this mod so far, but I found some glitches, they aren't that big but I somehow managed to glitch the ladder at the Laboratory out of the map... My only big problem at the moment is, that I can't find "one thing you love"... I installed the bug-fix for it, but still can't find it... do I have to play the complete story again? But the other parts are really nice and I loved the atmosphere and the puzzles have been great... looking forward to the End of this story and hope you'll make more mods like this^^ great job dude!!

Hello! I have REALLY enjoyed this custom story! It is very unique, scary and just badass! :D
However, I have a question. What is "one thing I love"? I can't find it! I've even tried torsos, legs, chairs, rugs, pottery, and almost everything in the game that I can pick up. x3
Is it a glitch? I went and re-checked the sewers as well. :/
Any advice?
EDIT: Sorry, just checked the post below me! Thanks!

If you got the 1.0.5 version, please download this bug-fix with "one thing you love".
Just place this item into the "entites" folder located in your main "the Machine" folder.
