Custom Story Reviews

Hey, my name's Owen Jones and I'm going to be posting reviews of mods, primarily Custom Stories, on a (hopefully) regular basis. If you've made or know of any CS's you'd like to hear someone's opinion on then I'd be happy to do so!
I'm going to be posting them on a blog called No Work, All Play where I've already reviewed White Night as that seemed like a good place to begin (though I'm interested in more obscure choices in the future). They certainly aren't taken too seriously and the blog doesn't really have any following, so don't expect any kind of publicity. I just thought that after slaving away at a mod people might like to read a full, heartfelt opinion on their creation.
So if you have any recommendations for a Custom Story to play/review, or any mod for that matter, just reply to this thread or send me an email (link below) or whatever.

RE: Custom Story Reviews

Hey Owen,

I think this is a great idea. Smile Doing reviews for for Amnesia custom stories and mods is something that has been on my mind for a while now. Sharing in-depth reviews seems like a fun activity we could do for threads, and potentially people know more precisely what to do when they're developing their own mods/CS.

Its not everyone who gets to have their mod/custom story reviewed so extreme.

Really good, we need to give this guy a chance on the forum i guess!

Well to be completely fair, one of the reason White Night was able to garner such an informative review is because it was so large, and expansive at least compared to normal Amnesia mods.

If you try doing it with some of the smaller ones you couldn't really write that much, because usually there's just not that much to talk about.

Thanks, I wasn't actually expecting much feedback, but great to know you enjoyed it!

Defiantly, my aim was to review peoples CS giving feedback and hopefully start some sort of community. You're next on my list, I've just been over-whelmed these past few days. I'm downloading the mod now and look forward to playing it!

True, that was one of the reasons why I chose to start with White Night. I'll still try to give as much detail as I can, and I'll try to keep them all around that length if I can (that's around 2-3 hours work so I may find I end up writing shorter ones in future). I did, however, play a relatively short mod called Obscurity (no, really) and I have quite a lot to say about that, so you never know...

Also, your title is fucking great. I love the shining.

Anyway, if you wish too I'd love to see your view on Sins of the Father when it's released (only a week and a bit away), either way - keep up the great work.

Defiantly, I'll look forward to its release. I'm doing the blog with a friend who reviews triple-A titles and he's a big Shining fan as well, so the name just stuck.
Good luck with releasing Sins of the Father by the way, I'll keep my eye out for it...
