Version 2.0, the irrevocably final version, is out now. Complete with 3 re-play modes and all major bugs fixed. Details below (may contain spoilers):

Version 2.0

  • Fixed the issue with the looping voice-over when multiple pieces are sent up in the elevator. Thanks to Raghn Ryker and Bendigo for pointing this out.
  • Fixed the issue with Burke not prompting the player to look upstairs after the 4th feeding, and to look for the pages after the 5th feeding.
  • Fixed the issue with having to do another feeding to trigger the cutscene in certain circumstances.
  • Fixed the almost impossible to get note in Seperation Anxiety. Thanks to ThatCrazyShaman for pointing this out.
  • Reduced the likelihood of pigs sometimes getting stuck on the elevator gratings.
  • Increased the chance of specific voice-over lines playing in the end-game, suggested by ThatCrazyShaman.
  • Enhanced the page-turning sound between queued-up voice-overs, to make it more obvious where one note ends and the next one starts.
  • Tweaked the end game to make it harder to accidentally get the "game over" ending.
  • Thanks to Ashtoreth and ThatCrazyShaman for pointing out a couple of typos.
  • Potentially ready for use with Mudbill's Amnesia mod loader (currently a work in progress).

This older version is included for legacy only (it's also a smaller download). Version 2.0 is probably the one you want.

This was extremely well done. I loved the story, the voice acting was brilliant, and the concept of Boney highly original. It was quite an experience.

Easy. Click on the "Downloads" tab, or go straight to "The Trapdoor ver. 2.0" in the "Latest Downloads" box above. Then hit the big red download button. Once you've downloaded the .rar file, open it up and follow the installation instructions in the readme. It's just the same as any Amnesia mod. :)

If you really miss the lantern, go to "Re-Play Modes" in the main menu and try out "My Little Boney: Friendship is Madness" - it turns Boney into a lantern, kinda.

This post might help: Aethericgames.com

I suspect that what you call the last pig is what I call the second pig. :)

Mods and custom stories don't need serial numbers - it's Amnesia itself that is asking you. So yes, use your Amnesia serial number and it should be fine.
