The Rift is a short custom story for Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
Here are some details:
REQUIRES THE AMNESIA 1.3 UPDATE!
Play time: 30 - 50 minutes
Custom assets: Monsters (credits will be provided)
Voice acting: No
Original story: Yes, but short and sweet.
Jumpscares: Minimal. The Rift follows the original Amnesia way of establishing a horror atmosphere without resorting exclusively to cheap jumpscares. No flying naked bodies. I promise!
This project was a test to see if I could cobble together a custom story in one day. Borrowing the design of one of Amnesia's levels (specifically Alexander's study) allowed me to produce an original custom story in about 8 hours. Nothing too in-depth or long, but sufficiently scary and (hopefully) enjoyable. Though inspired by a level from the original game, it is by no means a copy.
I really hope you enjoy it!
I've made quite a few fixes and changes in this version, which I will lay out below:
This story was never intended to be long or in depth. My goal in making this was definitely realized.
That thought in mind, I don't think I'll be putting a whole lot of time into adding to The Rift. I know it's short and the story is vague and the ending doesn't answer everything, but that's how it was designed.
I may make the ending longer or add a bit more to the story in the near future, but after that I think I'll let it stay and spend time working on my full-length custom story.
Thanks so much for playing my story! I really appreciate all the feedback.
Contains added information to understand and enjoy my custom story. Also contains the details to an upcoming update.

Positives: - Creative storyline - Custom monsters - Good atmosphere Negatives: - A lot of missed opportunities - Monster's AI is pretty bad (although you said you plan to fix this) - You say it's not a copy of the vanilla study. It's not a copy, but you could have done more - No intro I love to see new original content for Amnesia still coming out. One thing I always disliked about the Amnesia community is the huge lack of creativity. There are some amazing mods out there, but most mods are like…
