Minor Spoiler:

I managed to guess the lever combination in the temple by pure luck. Out of curiosity - what was the alphabetical clue about? I sat there fifteen minutes figuring it out but couldn't. I'm dying to know that

As a betatester of this custom story, I can tell that creator of the mode has put a lot of effort into it.

This custom story has many interesting puzzles, which will combine your speed, logic, focus, nerves :D and more.
But thats not the best content this custom story offers - actually there is one ability you cannot do in the original Amnesia game - HAMMER FIGHTING.
When I was trying to use the hammer first time, it was hard to learn how to use it, but than I was finally able to opose the monsters and not just run away!

All this is set into interesting story about knight called Aalot who is trying to accomplish impossible.
The ending is not that obvious as one could think...

I gaved up. I tried to kill that prisoner on that crypt, but my hammer didn't work. Well I tried to load from previous save and exit the game and restarted again. But I noticed all saves was gone, now I need to restart whole mod, no thanks. Mod has potential, but I think this is not tested at all, because I didn't progress on crypt part. Shame.

The mode is a bit more difficult, but it can be finished. When it comes to killing monsters, it needs a skill, but it can be done.

The custom story automatically saves the beginning of each chapter.

The monster must be hit with the hammer by force (in speed as in the video). It is not enough to just touch them with the hammer.

It didn't save on my part and I tried that multiply times, swinging every direction and force, enemy didn't die at all.

Did you use gamepad or mouse + keyboard?

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Controller, do you think it doesn't swing same way then? :O

Yes, controller is too slow for the combat system. :/
