This is a more story based mod. It's not very long, but still has its scares and puzzles. It depends more on the player when it comes to scare factor with this one.

The Story:

You have fallen victim to a curse through a trap. Lingering dark forces awaited their next helpless victim within the forests, and you so happened to be the unlucky receiver of such an unfortunate fate. Your wife, as well as her temporarily-staying brother, didn't understand or believe you wen you tried to explain the creatures haunting you from the shadows. You had to take matters in to your own hands.

It was as "simple" as kidnapping your neighbor, drawing a few symbols and chanting some strange foreign words. You could have sworn you did everything perfectly - but apparently not. It looks like an explosion went off in the room, the corpse is missing, and the evil shadows feel more powerful than ever. You need to fix this, before anyone is hurt... assuming people haven't already gotten in the evil's way.

It's up to you, in-game, to find out the ultimate question of *why*.

Please remember to rate and comment if you played it, i'd really like to know if people liked it or not!

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.

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!

A short but sweet mod focusing mainly on story and small puzzles. Regardless, it still has its scares. A sacrifice done with dark magic turns bad, and...

Just played it. A bit short but over all a good custom story, a few well placed scares along with some easy puzzles. 8/10. I would of given 10/10 if it was 30-60min longer.

What are you saying..? There's nothing but a single easter egg to link to PewDiePie in this. Did you even try it?
