"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)

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.

Super cool. Not made for speed or jumping tho, is it?
Its Tough to top Forbidden Trip. Thanks sincerely for the work you do for us. Its lost tho on the website, cause theyre posting old mods ahead of it which is always annoying.

Yes, it's a more contemplative, narrative experience but I'm sure speedrunners can find good ways to completely break it ahah!

Thanks for the kind words, glad this was cool!

I'm stuck at the beginning, that outside car is upside down and I can't grab the key at start. I can see the chest through the car, but it's somehow bugged now. I don't have other mods installed and I have latest updates.. can't proceed :(

Hey,

sorry to hear that but it looks like the problem is on your side.
When you uninstall/reinstall Amnesia: TDD, custom content is not automatically removed, it has to be manually deleted. The problem you have is typical, it looks like you still have other (broken) custom content left.

I had tests made by various players using fresh installations of Amnesia: TDD and there was no problem. :/

Just retried myself: everything is fine.

Please check again that you don't have any leftovers of others mods! What version do you use? Steam, GOG, retail... ?

I have retail version and I have removed all the custom mods already, I didn't re-install amnesia just for this custom story, maybe there is some leftovers, but I checked and no other FC mods not installed atm. Weird problem.
