I fear my life is in peril. Where I am or how I got here I have no recollection of, for my memory is fragmented and my mind scattered. I find it necessary to write down my thoughts for fear of losing them again. I don't know how many times I have drifted in and out of consciousness, or for how long I have been here. I see visions beyond this nightmare, visions of wood and carpet instead of stone and dirt, I hear rain.

This game was incredible, remarkable, I would in-fact say. The game started out as many custom stories, you're in a cell. But it was a lot more sophisticated than that after the escaping of said cell, with the puzzles in the Torture Chamber, etc. As the game progressed, so did the story, and it felt like a truly good story created by a team of professionals; not the four or five people mentioned in the credits.
I began to enjoy the game more towards the Castle area, it was really fun to play. The puzzles were standard, the scares however were really good and the level design was incredible! And then as I progressed more, read the notes such as the one about the priest, I noticed how much thought and care went into the making of this game.
My favourite part, was however, in the chapel with the priest that was talked about in a previously found note. It was an amazing, and unique idea. Sort of like a boss fight in Amnesia. And it terrified me, I don't think a custom story has ever made me that scared before!
And then the ending, the ending which would make Alfred Hitchcock proud. You were insane, it was all part of your insanity, it never happened. And the suitor you managed to trap, was just a regular person, now dead thanks to your brain's irregularities.
I would have preferred an ending which didn't mean hanging, but nevertheless, overall this custom story was absolutely amazing.
I would give this custom story a solid 9/10. For the story, level-design, grammar (Trust me its a big deal for me, seeing as about 80%+ of the custom stories have terrible grammar), the plot twist, the terror this game puts into you, and just about everything.
I hardly dislike anything in this custom story, perhaps if it was a bit longer, but besides that I like pretty much everything in this custom story, and especially considering the small amount of people that made this.
My over-all impression was that the story was incredible, especially towards the end of the game, it was definitely one of my favourite custom stories, if not, my favourite, which is why I am giving this a remarkable 9/10.
Highest Rated (6 agree) 9/10
Damn I loved this I have already gived feedback on FG forums.
It's still one of the best mods out there easily. Professional mapping, lightning everything is just perfect! Long gameplay, not boring, really scary, boss fight is damn unique and ending I was wow. Really sad, but DAMN EPIC! Try this, you won't regret it.
Thanks for making this. You should be proud :3
