The year is 2028. Your name is Alen Torrence. Times are rough, you can hardly support your family anymore in a rapidly failing economy, and they're likely the only thing you keep living for. You need a miracle or things will get dark, fast.

Luckily, one comes in the middle of the night, when a stranger rings your house giving you muffled instructions to meet at an abandoned building on the outskirts of town with a very large sum of money on the line. Of course, you accept immediately.

The building looks desolate upon arrival, but as the lights flicker on you realize there might be more going on than you would have bargained for. A man known as Dr. Happerford explains to you that for you to get the money you must participate in the preliminary studies for a new experimental drug running under the title of DC02. He vaguely explains that it allows you to experience dreams in a more realistic and vivid way than usual, though the specific circumstances are left unclear. Despite the shady circumstances you accept.

The story runs deeper though. It becomes immediately clear that whatever science this man had been toying with had far greater implications than you ever could have expected and the history behind DC02 is a lot longer, and a lot darker than you could have imagined. As Dr. Happerford starts to unfold you realize the severity of the situation, but by then the your only hope if to find your own way through the maze of your mind, and the further you go the less clear it becomes if you'll ever make it back....

YES. It's done. Wow. Crazy. Seriously though it's kind of hard to imagine given that it's been 3 years now, but yes the download is now up here and on the Frictional Games Forums.

As some of you may know it actually was up for about 2 hours a week ago but some issues came up that we hadn't experienced that were pretty game breaking so we had to take it down (had to do with the 1.3 patch). Similarly, we kind of busted our asses over the past 6 days to fix everything up just so we could get it back up. But I promised myself this would be the year I released it last January and we made it with only 3 hours to spare.

As a result we kind of rushed to fix up a lot of issues and I'm sure there's still a few left in there that we're not totally aware of, but for the most part this version should be ready to go. Expect updates in the coming weeks though with fixes.

Also on a somewhat related note, Logan put up the official soundtrack on his Bandcamp a few days ago! It's some really incredible stuff, coming from someone who listens to a lot of ambient music, this is some pretty top notch stuff for the style he's going for. Go download it and throw him a few bucks.

With all that said I hope all of you enjoy what we've made here. It's been a long ass time coming and I've been through SO much for this project but I really think it'll all pay off.

Hey, what's the name of the song that is played when you roll the gramophone from the first trial? I downloaded the soundtracks but it's not there. Please tell me. Thanks :)

I have problem with the custom story.
When I start the custom story, I got an error message.
"Could not load script file"
It wrote the problem with the Sub_Trail_1.hps in the custom story's map folder. And more problem with:
"main(102,2): ERR: No matching signatures to'MovePlayerForward(const uint)'
main(213,2):ERR: No matching signatures to 'MovePlayerForward(int)'"

Looks like you have an outdated version of Amnesia. Update it to the latest version (1.3) and try again

so i finally finished this great piece :) at last a detailed, long, and unique storyline in an amnesia mod. i liked the design quite much, but sometimes it was just a bit too detailed and experienced much lag at some points (i usually do not have a problem with this in any Amnesia mod). the puzzles were great, sometimes lacked some hints and i had to check the walkthrough, but it was a nice challenge overall. the voice acting, the music were perfect no complainment here. i didn't like the fact that it wasn't too horrific in most places, had no usable light sources and so on. i didn't like the antigravity part (it took me a lifetime to get through, and i always had to reload a savegame when i did not succeed), and the shadow maze a bit (i overally do not like labirinths, but that does not affect the score). other than these, even if it's a custom story not an fc mod, the new stuff worked out well, the atmosphere with the audio was more than satisfying, it was a bit laggy, and some areas lacked the purpose, but i'll give 9/10, it's a great mod, thanks for the experience ^^

until the file gets authorized on here, you can download the patch to fix both the drill not combining and the game crashing upon leaving the shadow maze here

getting the patch up is taking a little bit longer than expected just because me and logan both have other stuff going on and we didn't really get the time to get the issues worked out. expect it to be up within the next day or two max, both the crash loading map 8 and the drill not combining are really easy fixes so its just a matter of us being able to find the time to get it done together. sorry for the inconvenience!!

This was a really impressive mod. I was shocked of what it gave to me and it actually scared the living shit out of me in some parts. The stories you offered was really nice. I liked every single one, as they're interesting, intense and scary. But, as pretty much every mod, it comes with its flaws. I began raging a little bit when I came into the very cool looking machine room. I placed the cogwheels and put the oil in the fuel machine and solved that puzzle in no time, but then it came over to…
