reading every single note and regarding every little detail I could find I got no more than 5 hours even at a very slow pace.

I quickly skimmed through the whole thread, and I don't think anyone was actually bashing the game, but at most a bit surprised it ended so early.

RE: How long it took you to finish the game?

I beat it in about four hours. It kinda made me sad to see it end so soon. I was expecting a full length game. But, this felt like an expansion, and short one at that. But, I guess that's why it was only $20. It just kinda surprised me, seeing as how it took so long for the game to be made.

With all due respect... Do you realize how much effort needs to be put in to actually produce a really well-designed game? From what I know, the development time for AMFP has been just less than 2 years, which is very standard for most games. In fact, most games from bigger companies in the industry take around 3-4 years to develop their more popular titles. Note that these AAA studios also have larger budgets as well as larger teams, so a lot more can be done in a shorter amount of time.

These guys are indie developers, and outside of one mod, this was The Chinese Room's first attempt at a true horror game. A lot of pressure would have been placed on them to deliver something fresh while also keeping true to the roots of Amnesia.

I just find it truly disheartening at how oblivious consumers are to the hard work that goes into developing games. It involves so many different fields and attention to detail, yet people act like it's easy to create them. I see so much hate towards game developers these days for delivering something SLIGHTLY different than what they expected. Meh, as someone who has had some real experience with developing both games and full-fledged mods, I get really pissed off at a lot of whining aimed towards devs.

4,5 hours, without rushing and trying to find everything. Felt like a let down when TDD took me around 9 hours to finish (but then again I was just sitting in corners first time I played it).

Maximum immersion, notes read carefully, admiring the amazing map design, environment, and atmosphere.

I wonder who is the one who voted 1-2 hours.
