Nails logo

It's been months since I've messed with any of the levels in this mod. A couple of days ago I just started editing this game again and I've decided to also make changes to the name. I renamed the project to Nails because it sounds better than the last name and actually has a metaphorical connection to the project's story. It's safe to say this mod is back in full production. Matthew Emmett is the only current developer of the full conversion project. I started this back in 2015 myself, and it may be the case that I'll be finishing its seemingly-eternal development. I've always had a specific vision for what I wanted this game to feel like and how it's presented to the player. I have no intention to go through the hassle of converting this over to Amnesia: Rebirth's engine.

One of the most important aspects of Metus is to induce the fear you felt in one of your nightmares that made you wake up, sitting in bed, too scared...

Yes, it is, but it's pretty lengthy for a demo.

What's up with the name change?

I thought it was more appropriate than "Metus". Nails have a metaphorical connection to the story too so I prefer that name over "Metus" or "Meatus" (apparently a part of the ***** if spelt that way). Nails just strikes me as a darker tone for a horror game title anyway, and it's simple and easy to remember. Secondly, the name change was honestly a ploy to get the community interested in a upcoming mod that's been idle in development for months until now. And let's be real, everyone thinks "Metus" as another dead mod now. As long as I don't change the name repeatedly, a name change in the middle of development isn't too bad of an idea. The new name and logo will also catch people's attention more.

Yup. (I may release a "playable trailer" in the middle of development so the wait doesn't kill the mod's following)
