Along Came an Indie: Amnesia: The Dark Descent & Custom Stories

StickSkills said, "What Frictional has succeeded in making reminds me of the literary world’s Lovecraftian mythos. Assets created for Amnesia are used to create custom stories, a fancy name for mods, much in the same way that H.P. Lovecraft created an abstract collection of ideas that his fellow writers could use. In addition to crafting what are easily some of the scariest games of the past decade, they opened up innumerable possibilities for fans of the genre to make stories of their own. Frictional’s official site even has a wiki set up to answer common questions regarding their engine. But first, it’s important to know what Frictional does right with their own creation, Amneisa: The Dark Descent."
