My first ever custom story for Amnesia! Completed in just under a week.

This was a project I chose for myself to do while I recovered from having my wisdom teeth removed. With great help from Mudbill's Youtube Tutorial series which I referred to constantly.

It's pretty basic and very short but has some nice surprises and a spooky atmosphere!

Do let me know what you think and areas that I could improve on!

Pretty nice for first try, and being in pain with wisdom teeth...I'm impressed. Know what I noticed that was really well done? The sound. You laid in the sound track really well. It popped out in super stereo, too. Reading how you did the mod, I believe it inspired a dream I had:
Now remember....I have NO IDEA how you geniuses make these mods.
I dreamed I made an Amnesia Mod. The first problem was installation. It had 7 levels of folders, all of the same name, within folders. So when you put it in custom stories, it never showed up.
The mod itself was a completely empty room except for a barrel I somehow managed to stick to the ceiling. And a red door. When you touched the red door, you just fell out of the map. And it started over.
I won Mod of the Year.
(By the way...in case you don't know, LavajO is a master. Selphium was incredible)
Thanks for the effort, appreciated. And it was a refreshing break from playing SwankestCZ Dutch translation of Justine ( which made no sense to me since I dont speak Dutch)

Since you have an approach I haven't seen in a long time I will give you some tips on how to improve, or at least try

For your own good don't make short mods like that. I assume you wanted to know players' opinions, I did something similar, and although it was a demo and I later expanded it, that was still a mistake. It just looks like you don't wanna do too much work.

Your rooms are usually empty, you can either make them smaller or add some objects in the center to fill the void. I suggest you check "storage" and "ornament" sections in entity list for useful objects.

I assume you know your puzzles are just keys, and there's no simple explanation to making a good puzzle, so I can only say you should experiment with that. Maybe making a potion, or moving boxes to form a bridge, stuff like that.

Making introduction would also be good. Here you only know what's happening from the mod's description. But you could for example script how you lay in your cell and one of the servants drops the key that you could use. Although simple and made up in 10 seconds, it would be better than starting off by looking at the wall with the cell door already open. Such scenes and other minor events can be used throughout the mod to help with immersion.

Your mod was too short to have a room for that but think of dynamic music in the future. Whenever there's a change of pace or an unsettling event the right choice of music might help with the final impact on the player.

Though it's still better than most beginner mods, you should work on lighting, starting from adding box lights that cover the whole map. Rarely you want to have pitch black environment, especially with candles around.

Good atmosphere and unpredictable monsters are the key to making your mod scary. The obvious spawn behind the door after key pickup never works. Spawning them using script areas, timers or just having them patrolling the area without any warning will scare the player much more if they accidentally run into them.

To make it better add scary events. Blowing candles, opening doors, distant sounds etc.

Lastly, even though I quit modding I can directly help you if you run into some problems, just hit me up, either here or on discord. And GL with your future mods

I’m glad you enjoyed it! Seeing someone else play it is very surreal but provides some really good information on how I should go about placing items and building maps in the future.
