Skashi you SHOULD read people's posts about disliking jumpscares. Read them.

ALSo people with constructive criticism will give you advices for a truly scary custom story, about lightning etc. You should listen to them! Don't just ignore them they're NOT "HATING" on you. Think about if you continue releasing maps like these you will lose your respect and "fans"....

I do not understand why you do this kind of Custom Story. The map design is ok, there is a new monster which is quite interesting; in other words, you have the tools to make a very good and surprising story. But there isn't any work on the storyline, it's like :
Spoiler below!
You wake up in a wood in front of a house and you don't remember a shit of what you have done before, so you go in the mansion instead of leaving in order to go back to your home, admitting that you have not forgotten where you live... Then you touch the door, THEN THERE IS A GIANT DOG WITH AN EXPLODED HEAD WHO SHOUTS AT YOU AND DISAPPEARS IN A PUFF OF SMOKE AND... AND THEN YOU FIND A NOTE WITH A MAN WHO SEEMS TO LIVE HERE AND WONDER WHY HIS DOGS HAVE AN EXPLODED HEAD ! WHAT AN EXISTENTIAL QUESTION !
And the jumpscares, good lord ! This is absolutely not credible.

*Get an item* "WHOAW ! How unexpected ! There is a monster behind me, ready to cut off my head !"

And by the way, better to opt for a good old windscare instead of bet on the Virgin of Nuremberg who is so common and boring. I expected to collide with the penis of a naked man in the hallway, thank you god that did not happen.
To continue on the "storyline" : Even the behavior of your monster is sensless !
*Look at the avatar*
I bet that was a custom story for a guy like Pewdie or sort of. It's a pity, you have probably the skills to make a better custom story.

Just wow.. I've played this cs for like 10mins and all I have to say right now is: F*cking awesome! One of the scariest story I've played this far.. I hope that its this awesome all the way to the end.. Great work, keep doing good stories like this!

EDIT: Finished the story.. I feel mentally raped right now. Really good custom strory, I recommend this to everyone who likes stories that aren't really long but are f*cking scary. Phew..

RE: Amnesia - canis abusus [FIXED]

Played this and got bored so started messing around. Everything was bad.. I have no other way to put it. The jumpscares weren't even scary, enemies etc.. not scary. Seriously, what were you thinking?

Next time, get someone like Summer who can help people with their storylines etc, and try not to use new(ripped) models, use the amnesia base and focus on atmosphere with sounds off in the distance, eerie dark rooms, etc. There are loads of guides - you've always had potential but you've wasted it on these crappy maps. Start again from square one and build up your mapping, story and atmosphere skills. Then you might make a half way decent custom story for once.
