Victor Ryland, the head priest of the local church, is on his way home after a particularly tiring day. Hearing cries of anguish in the distance, he rushes to see what is happening. When he arrives at the crossroads, he finds nothing but a pool of blood. Hearing a noise, he spins around, only to see talons lash out at him. The power of the blow causes him to crumple to the ground. As the world darkens around him, he can hear the sounds of battle as his kinsmen battle against this unknown adversary.

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!

An amazing custom story with a really nice story line, but I honestly believe that not enough time/effort were put/invested into this. It could be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better if you (author) had taken it more seriously!

Nevertheless, one of my favorites in 2.015 still! Nice job!

I only got the bad ending. I took an alternative path(via the forge) but in the end I still got the same ending. I'm supposed to get a dagger somewhere, and do something with it..? I've watched many Youtube playthroughs, and nobody shows how to get the other endings x_x Could you explain how do I get the good and the neutral endings? Tnx in advance :>

I absolutely LOVED this CS (honestly one of the best I've played thus far!), although I've found a glitch. :< Towards the very very end when you can open only one chest to get the key for the last room, NONE will open for me, and I've re-opened the game multiple times to try to make it work, but it simply won't. Ha ha, but I loved it so much I had to look up the ending!

You need to light the four fires near the barrels, adjacent to the prison cells. That will summon the 'Shroud' God guy. The door will then be unlocked.

Awesome stuff. I really love the non-linear portion. The only issue I have with that is the optional paths need to be a lot longer. Not only will this enhance the feeling of choosing your own path, but it allows the user to play the mod several times over and be happy to do so. The multiple endings really added to it, as well. I'm really happy to see someone show this kind of creativity in these mods. If you ever plan to make another map, please abuse the crap out of the alternative paths, to the…
