I think. I hope not.

EDIT: How do I put together the Custom Story? I have the test map ready, but How do I run it in Amnesia?

Ok, can you explain how game-play will be?
left 4 dead series is a co-op scenario shooter
without co-op? (no multiplayer support)
and no guns? (weapons arn't possible)

so... you create a small horde of brutes and grunts and get the player to run around doing small tasks while a brute and 2 grunts chase you...
sounds ummm.... really boring.
and lame.

Im done with the L4D. It would be to frikkin Hard for me. I have no Idea how to script or anything. But, How do I make my map into a custom story so I can play it in Amnesia? I have kinda like a little test map ready and I want to see it in-game.

I've come to learn to not fear the living, nor the dead... But the monsters that hide in closets.

You'd have to make the player THINK he's under constant pursuit, like Frictional's water lurker chase scene.

Also, You've given me a good idea. It will be a little thing, and once you pick up the latern, a door will open that was locked and a brute will pop out and you have to kinda race it to the ending. If it catches up, you die. If you beat it, You go to the 2nd level. But I have 2 problems. 1. How do I make it so the level ends after you go into a door and the credits roll 2. How do I make it so It would open after you pick up the lantern. Sorry I have NO clue how to use a level editor cause I never have before.
