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!

Update 1.1 Notes

News

I've made quite a few fixes and changes in this version, which I will lay out below:

  • Added a bit more flesh to the story to make it less vague. It's still very brief and succinct, but it has a little more depth now. If I ever expand The Rift into a more full-fledged story, I'll add more in the future.
  • Added a simple, but needed introduction.
  • Simplified the final puzzle.
  • Fixed some monster pathing issues. I'm sure there's still more I can do to make the monsters smarter, but they should get stuck less now.
  • Made some simple appearance changes for a few of the levels. Cleaned up some ugly object placement.
  • Made a few sound changes.
  • Tightened up some timers so the script flows a bit faster.
  • Cut the file size by over half!
  • Slightly changed the ending.
  • Removed that oil barrel.

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.

Nice twist to the Amnesia "Study" area. Scary stuff.

Adding another update (1.2)! This should fix the rest of the monster issues and adds to the story.

You don't have the Amnesia 1.3 update! Download that and you'll be able to progress.

That's why I put a disclaimer in both the he mod description and the Read Me that you need the 1.3 update. ;)

Just search for "Amnesia 1.3 update"

There's a file size issue I'm going to fix soon. I can send you a message with the puzzle solution if you can't figure it out. I know it's really obscure! I made this in one day as a challenge, so that's why it's short. It's meant to be.
