"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist"


In Year Zero you will go through a journey, trying to solve and find the incentive for the doings of the old, satanic cult which was, according to certain sources, brainwashed by their leader. The cult had one job, and one job only - to destroy the world we live in as of now - with the help of the hell's almighty. Your job is to find out whether they have failed on their quest, or if the worst is yet to come.

Although you expected your trip to be quickly over, you will soon realize you're in an earthly nightmare. Nightmare from which there might be no way out.


Please note! This project is in extremely early stage of development. The story, images and anything I write here as of now will most likely to be changed in the future. This page was made to gather interest and visibility on the site.

Hello everyone! This is the first development diary for my in-development Amnesia mod, Year Zero. I started this project three weeks ago, and I can say that I am not disappointed with the decision I made. I have been enjoying working on the mod (at least so far) a lot, and for once I feel like I actually have something to accomplish.

General ideas and what's new:

  • I have been working only on the first level so far. This is because I believe working on multiple maps at the same time hampers your creativity and flow. I will not start a new map before the first one is entirely polished, scripted and detailed.
  • The storyline is in very active development currently. All my mods previously, including Conquest of Life, have failed at least when storylines are concerned. This time, I want to give you a well-developed, planned and executed story. It is no doubts that storywriting is amongst the worst of my skills, so I will give my everything this time. I hope you will enjoy the satanic ride you are about to get yourself into.
  • The improvement I have made throughout the first map and the last map of Conquest of Life has been overly massive. The levels I make for Year Zero will be far better and higher in quality when compared for Conquest for example.
  • I have decided to use a few maps from Conquest of Life in Year Zero. Some of them will probably undergo some changes, but the general layout and purpose will at least mostly be the same. These maps include: Sewer - Underground Section - Old Archives
  • As with the maps, some of the puzzles will also be moved from Conquest of Life. It is likely that none of the puzzles from the demo will be in Year Zero, but rather the puzzles I am satisfied with and what I have not yet released.

Release dates, demos?

At this point it is impossible to even estimate the date or possible demo, as the project is in such early development. I expect the mod to be released in 2021. I am not sure about the demo either, but in case I find it good for the mod then I might release a demo.

That is all for this time, thank you for reading! Make sure to comment down if you have any ideas or questions or other feedback. I will release an article regarding the fate Conquest of Life later.

I have hopes this will be better than your other mods, and from what I have seen so far, the design at least is immensely improved!

I'm really sad about the cancellation of Conquest of Life but I am hella excited for Year Zero. The story already has me interested and I can't wait to see what comes out of this!

Yeah, it was one of the top mods on my modwatch but its all good, **** happens and you can't do much about it. Hopefully you'll have better luck with this mod's development.
