Spoiler below!
It was a fairly well made map. Everything seemed laid out nice, good dialogue and puzzles. I wish I could have enjoyed going through much of the main area without experiencing so much lag (my computer sucks), but I could still see you put a lot of work into making the map look nice. Monster placement is good. I very much enjoyed that little ritual you had to complete on the top floor, and then having to lure the monster into the room. I havent seen anything like that before in these custom stories, so it was pretty cool. Im disappointed that the story was short, but I'm hoping to see more from you.

Overall, I enjoyed the story. Keep up the good work. :U
Livestream Playthroughs (excuse my lame jokes and bad fake accents) :

Part 1: http://www.livestream.com/kaizy/video?cl...m=ui-thumb

Part 2: http://www.livestream.com/kaizy/video?cl...m=ui-thumb
Spoiler below!

After a lot of consideration, you're excused! :-P That was lag? At first I thought you uploaded your play through using powerpoint! :-P Sorry man, I couldn't resist... I'm working on putting less load on the pc in the next episode. It was quick because I didn't know whether the gamers would like it or not. I intent to upload short episodes like this one every two months. I'm working on putting my own music in the next one. I've already begun recording a couple of instruments. I think it will be nice. Also more recorded conversations than letters. For all those lazy enough to read.

Please some understanding. I work alone on this. Undecided

Yes, you can tell my framerate was really bad throughout the whole gameplay, as well as every gameplay I do lol
I'm running a Macbook from over 3 years ago to play my games so its really lacking in power and quality parts and thus my framerate is just awful

I play Amnesia Custom Stories a couple times a week on Livestream
Its great fun

Edited the last post. I accidentally posted it unfinished. Read the previous one. Actually it's pretty nice gameplay and comments. Thanks!

ps: In the rod puzzle, you didn't even read the instructions to understand which goes where. And no, you didn't try the same combination the last time... :-)

I don't blame the story for the framerate, my computer is just crummy

But I can't wait to see what the next installment offers

Spoiler below!

The ritual's first paragraph was from Monty Pythons and the holly grail actually. Rolleyes Just a little modified to fit into my story.
TO DO LIST:
In the next version block the player from climbing on furniture while the monster chases him...

Yeah, I had no idea about the Monty Python reference, as I have never watched Monty Python
A friend of mine in the stream pointed it out

Dude, awesome work on this custom story. So much details on the scenery, impressive. Also the thunder was really a good idea and well used.
Too bad the FPS was so bad in the big hall, but i still appreciated.

I found a bug by the way :
Spoiler below!

In the room where you found the colored rods next to the mirrored room, you can jump through the
wall in the right corner, and also die in the blue flames (don't ask how i managed to find that Big Grin ).

Haha! Damn testers, completely useless! Need to train them better! :-P I'm not going to ask... I understand you became a little frustrated with the puzzle and started the try-error method as well as the running-around-jumping-clicking-on-every-wall-and-screaming-at-the-damn-screen one. Ok, I'm going to fix that in the next version which will have the next episode as well. Unless someone finds some major bug. Call me strange but I don't think there is much chance someone will stump onto this one again. Not in the near future anyway... Tongue

Really, thank you for the feedback and bug report! Sorry guys, nothing I can do for the FPS drop. I'm trying to avoid creating massive levels like this one now. More compact and light from now on... Big Grin

ABOUT EPISODE II
I encountered a little problem and it's gonna take a while... It is actually almost complete but something happened to my graphics card. I'm waiting for a response e-mail from the manufacturer in the following week (I hope). I'm using an old GeForce 6600 now,
which can't even open the editor, I won't even try opening the game. So please, some patience. The soundtrack is ready though! :-)
