"I don't want to be here.
Still, I have to... there is one mission left for me."

Your wish will soon be granted.

  • The Woodpecker was made in 8 days for the Dec. 2019 - Jan. 2020 Frictional Fan Jam: Winter Modding Event!
  • I'm a big fan of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. myself. Plus I'm a big fan of Amnesia, Penumbra & especially SOMA. So guess what?
  • I decided to create a narrative experience keeping in mind: what could happen if the worlds of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and SOMA were linked, in a parallel universe?
  • The themes for this jam were Winter and hibernation.
  • I worked hard to try producing a simple yet decent storyline in original environments you are not accustomed to in Amnesia, partly inspired by S.T.A.L.K.E.R. titles.
  • Your goal: complete your mission. There is a good reason you came back to this place after all those years...
  • I hope you will have a fun time in this strange, desolated complex!
  • Please, enjoy!

Hey stalkers! Hey everyone!

Some of you may know me from the Forbidden Trip Total Conversion: well, forget this World!
The Woodpecker is a lot different...

The concept

This custom story for Amnesia was made in 8 days for the Dec. 2019 - Jan. 2020 Frictional Fan Jam: Winter Modding Event!

The themes were Winter & hibernation.

I'm a big fan of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. myself. Plus I'm a big fan of Amnesia, Penumbra & especially SOMA. So guess what? I decided to create a short narrative experience keeping in mind: what could happen if the worlds of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and SOMA were linked, in a parallel universe?

What's in for you

  • An abandoned complex in the middle of a forbidden Zone is here for you to explore.
  • A goal? Complete your mission. That will be well enough. There is a good reason for you to be here...
  • I tried my best to create a simple yet nice storyline. In the end, you'll be the judge for that!
  • Environments are a big change for an Amnesia mod. Visually it's partly inspired by S.T.A.L.K.E.R. titles.
  • I worked hard and with passion to deliver an original mod to you!

Imminent release

It is scheduled for the upcoming weekend, when the Frictional Fan Jam ends.

The Woodpecker (1.0)

Soooo many frame rate drops in this story. The frame rate fluctuates too wildly for me and I am using an RTX2080 and an i9 processor.

Hi, yep FPS can vary depending on your hardware combination I guess… 🤔 Other players, testers & myself got very decent results with older specs although I can totally understand this mod can be demanding; it's one big map. On the other hand, I heard problems currently happening with recent hardware & other games; maybe upcoming drivers will solve most of that.

Just in case, do you remember which floors or rooms you had frame drops?

Still, I hope that in the end you had a good time! 😃

Have a very good weekend!

Edit: all my works are optimised for 1080p resolution, nothing up. Looking at your other comments I see you play in 4K, try lowering your resolution and you'll be fine. 😉

I never finished Stalker back then, even though it was fun. :P

I hope I don't forget to finish this mod, it looks extremely original!

It's short so you don't need a whole weekend to finish it, don't worry! :)

I would recommend you to update the mod page, it still has no reviews - but it's worth a try, it is an amazing and original mod. We're not seeing many of such creations for Amnesia nowadays, but you managed to make something truly original and great at that! :)

Thanks! I always try to create original things so I'm glad you liked this (short) story!

I'm thinking about publishing a small patch soon, I'll update the page presentation as well. ;)

Too many czech/russian translations. It's very hard find a new mod now.
Someone can complain this.
I've found this mod for lucky.
