An Amnesia: The Dark Descent mod focused around subtle story-telling, hyper-realism, and short but meaningful holiday-themed experiences...with a twist.
Unfortunately, Palistov's Holiday Series will not continue further than the St. Patrick's Day 2012 release. I will be devoting my time to school and a very big long-term project. Sorry to those who were expecting a long string of holiday-themed Amnesia mods :( But I can promise that this long-term project will be worth the wait.
Valentine's Day 2012 | A Visit to Katherine
Every day is exactly the same for Albert. Exactly the same. But once a year, he is reintroduced to an extraordinary person who changed his life forever, and continues to guide him in ways nobody else could.
St. Patrick's Day 2012 | Hunter
A legend tells of a guarded treasure hidden in a cave, but its origin is far more sinister than one might think. It is said to have been accumulated over decades, from the belongings of treasure hunters who wandered into the cave, never to return.
There are two different methods of purchasing Amnesia: The Dark Descent -- through the Frictional Games Store (retail installation) or through the Steam client. Launching the mod is different for both, and may also vary depending on what platform you are on.
-- RETAIL --
.:. Windows - Extract the PalistovHolidaySeries into your Amnesia - The Dark Descent/redist/ folder. Download the retail launcher here, and place it in that same directory. Launch the batch file and select which mod to play.
.:. Mac - Open up Terminal and type in (without quotes) 'open /Applications/Amnesia.app --args PalistovHolidaySeries/config/1_main_init.cfg'. This assumes Amnesia is installed in the Applications folder. If it is not, type in the appropriate path for the Amnesia application. Also, the number before '_main_init.cfg' corresponds to which mod launches. The list of mods and their enumeration can be seen further down the page.
.:. Linux - Extract the PalistovHolidaySeries folder to the same directory as your Amnesia client. Create a bash script with the following code. Place it where the bin files for Amnesia are.
# 32-bit operating systems
if [ -e "./Amnesia.bin" ]; then
# 64-bit operating systems
if [ -e "./Amnesia.bin64" ]; then
./Amnesia.bin64 PalistovHolidaySeries/config/1_ main_init.cfg
echo "Could not find game binary.";
-- STEAM --
.:. Windows - Extract the PalistovHolidaySeries folder to the Amnesia root. Launch the included batch file. Choose which mod to play and press enter.
.:. Mac - Open up Steam. Go to your games Library and right-click on Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Go to Properties > Set Launch Options. In the field, type 'PalistovHolidaySeries/config/1_main_init.cfg' (without quotes). Be sure to replace the number with the number of the mod you wish to play. Also, remember to remove this launch argument if you wish to play The Dark Descent, or a custom story.
Alternatively, you can run the same script in Terminal as with the Retail insallation (without quotes) 'open /Applications/Amnesia.app --args PalistovHolidaySeries/config/1_main_init.cfg'. As always, replace the number with that of the mod you wish to play.
.:. Linux - Use the first method associated with Steam installation on a Mac platform (see above). You can probably also run it using a bash script similar to the one associated with the retail installation on a Linux system.
