You were approached by the Do'gradji family with the pleaded request that you rescue their child from a mysterious location known as "The Forbidden Caves". As a highly esteemed mercenary you wouldn't normally accept such a petty job, but one look in their heartbroken eyes told you this was no place for a child - plus the advance deposit is nothing to sniff at!
Information surrounding these enigmatic "Forbidden Caves" is little-to-none, but the Nali are notoriously secretive; what strange and dark secrets could possibly be hiding down there?


  • 12 playable levels set in a variety of locations.
  • Varied gameplay, from puzzles to parkour to straight-up-FPS.
  • Custom content including new weapons and music.
  • A checkpoint system a la TWHL Tower where health and inventory is reset between levels.
  • 227 "spice" such as particle emitters and distance fog.

Hey there! Welcome to this week's roundup of the YouTube, where we covered two mods that start with "the" (totally by accident), including a community-made map pack celebration!

Monday - Playthrough - The Intersection

Ominous castles are part-and-parcel in Amnesia, since after all, the whole game takes place in creepy Brennenburg. Common as well is the tale of the adventurer too curious for their own good, and in The Intersection, that's you - someone who couldn't leave well enough alone and entered a dark place. Horrors lie within, and in the end, your sanity may be the price for finding the truth.


Wednesday - Shorts - The Cleaner

What do FEAR, John Wick, and Max Payne all have in common? You're a badass with no fear, no equal, and no stopping - and that feeling is what The Cleaner, an action gun-fu-like indie is hoping to evoke. Putting you into shooting galleries of fast moving, deadly AI that reward mastery and quick reflexes with a visual buffet of effects and cool kills, you'll be cleaning house of any goon in your way.

When communities come together, some of the best mods are made - as with The Descent, where over a half-dozen creators made twelve levels touching upon many cornerstones in the Unreal gameplay sandbox. New weapons and music, puzzles mixed with classic FPS action, and some quality of life additions are all on the cards - so boot up Unreal, and let's get deep into the Forbidden Caves!


That's all for this round-up. What do you think about the mods listed? Feel free to discuss below and check out the YouTube for more videos past, present, and future!
