In Amnesia: Number 7 you play as yourself in the year 1880. You live your normal live but are so bored to death you decide to go on a holiday to Norway. On your third day in Norway, the second of February, you decide to go hiking in a nearby forest that a local has recommended. It is an impressive forest and you love the fresh smell of all that grows there. But after several hours of walking you notice that the animals have stopped making sounds. The missing sound of the animals creates an eerie atmosphere in the forest. And not only that, it is starting to get dark. Though you have a map with you, it is impossible to read it properly. The map tells you weird things. There are only trees and other plants where, according to the map you bought in a shop in you town, there should be a house. And when you think that it cannot get any worse, the thing you least expect happens…

Well.. Finished it finally, but not that way, what I wanted to finish it.

Well.. let's start with beginning I really don't know about those "Frame dropping maps" where this is coming from, but many map lagged so much, I was getting frustrated sometimes so much and that ruined my experience a little bit. Maps were good, really detailed ones, scary ones, cool chases, interesting puzzles, but why I can't give any higher than seven, were the bugs.

Disappointing things:

I noticed when exploring stuff, many areas are damn dark, even my lantern sometimes didn't find everything.
I wasn't always sure where to go example. Waking up that house there were many puzzles were, I really have to think, next areas I was completely lost with altar rooms, but later on where I really faced my progressing problems was that "Maze" and another maze with more confusing design. Sometimes it was just annoying to play and ruined my experience with gameplay and tension.

Why adding "Death System" it's so useless because I can easily just "Save and Exit" and just start here again if I die. I really appreciate Idea building one, but sometimes even if I die I get the "random crash" and I have to still start everything over and sometimes "Death system / checkpoint system didn't work, because when I go though that level door, suddenly I appear somewhere else and when I appear somewhere some doors are unlocked example. at that Storage tunnels where I can't progress because you didn't restart events when I died. Really easy to forget and now I see why there is many flaws and problems, because there are so many things and complicated stuff in this mod.

Pos:

- Custom Music
- Long gameplay
- Story
- Puzzles
- Scares
- Boss Fight

Neg:

- Confusing at times
- Flickering textures, many bugs
- Lacking design sometimes (not all the maps)
- Random crashing
- Death System (useless)

Overall it was succesful and decent mod to play.

7/10 - Decent and long

Terrible death system.
Terrible game balance.
Terrible buggy.

Intersting mode. For full walkthrough see my Youtube channel: Swankest CZ

Puzzles were great and the atmosphere was excellent! Very well done!

Really good!
Also nostalgic to me, because of the Harry Potter (game) sounds and music.

Want a scary, well made custom story? Well, this is your custom story. As a veteran custom story player, who played Amnesia since it came out, this custom story made me fear Amnesia again. I also liked the story and the developer made good environments and atmospheres. You have a good build up and also "resting places" where the player can calm down from previous intense places. The puzzles are interesting and some are original. The length of the CS is perfect as it is not too short and too long, as the permanent death system would be not a challenge when it would have been too short or too much of a challenge if it would have been too long. I also enjoyed the perma death system and for those who did not like it: GIT GUD!

I did not get much of the story. But hey this is a lot different than a lot of custom story's which do not have stories at all.
Incredible level design.
Incredibly looked after.
Death system was good and worked fine.
Scares were thought out. (except the flying naked guy and some other jumpscares...)
Incredible chasing scenes.
Incredible atmosphere.

Some people complain about the framerate drops, In some maps they appeared, but only the few seconds in the beginning. It's not this custom story, it's your pc that makes it stutter.

Very promising mod. It had a lot of really cool ideas and features, the story was also pretty good. It was exceptionally buggy though, which is shame because the mod itself was actually really good. If it gets patched (which it may already have), definitely give it a try

This mod is great, worth 8-9 points,giving 10 just to balance its score.
