The Trapdoor is a portrait of Jonathan Burke, a lonely servitor to an unseen and diabolical master. As isolation, incarceration, and debasement inevitably erode what's left of his sanity, his repressed memories begin to surface and the insidious menace of the trapdoor grows in his mind.

News

Ten years later, there's a new version of The Trapdoor!

This new version (3.1, "Reopened") is specially rebuilt for ATDD version 1.5, and may not be as you remember.

Original key features:

  • Custom sanity system
  • Over 250 lines of voice acted dialogue
  • Two large, complex maps to get lost in
  • Difficulty settings

New and redesigned for "Reopened":

  • Sanity system tweaked and rebalanced
  • Both old endings reworked, plus one brand new ending
  • Twelve custom monsters: Grunts and Brutes re-imagined in claymation-like style
  • Adaptive custom music track
  • Expanded and re-balanced difficulty options, from Safe Mode to Nightmare mode
  • Environments, lighting and atmospherics improved throughout

The easiest way to get and play this new version is on Steam Workshop... but if you wanted to read that you wouldn't be here! :P So, there's a version here on ModDB, but you need to make sure you have Amnessia: The Dark Descent version 1.5, or it will not work. If you're ready, you can grab it here.

After seeing all the positive reception for this mod, I'm sad to say it didn't appeal to me. But I only give review scores to mods I finish, so here's my summary after quitting:

Perhaps it's an issue with the remaster, but this didn't function properly for me. First I couldn't get the bat file to launch, but then I was able to run the mod through the Custom Story menu in-game. Then after a while the trapdoor started flinging open and shut constantly, so I decided to throw Boney in it, which seemed to erase the sanity mechanic and break the game. But actually, what made me stop playing was when I dropped a pig down onto a lower floor by accident and couldn't find it because everything was so dang dark, even with 1.25 gamma. I appreciate the concept of this mod, but the way it is now without bug fixes/optimization, it just feels like a tedious, broken escort mission to me.

Are you sure that's the correct combination for your current playthrough?

(In case you didn't know, it's different every time. Burke's flashback will give you a clue. If you haven't had the flashback yet, you're not ready.)

If you're sure 1563 is correct, let me know.

I'm sad to say the solution doesn't work for me. :(
I can get some mods to work, but not all of them, like this one.
