Too scared to play Amnesia? Remove the monsters from the game!

1. Run Amnesia, get into the game, but at the User select/creation screen, go no further.

2. Shift+tab to bring up Steam Overlay, then alt+tab

3. Go into your Steam\Steamapps\common\amnesia the dark descent\entities directory

4. Here you will see a folder named "enemies". Rename it "OLDenemies".

5. Alt+tab back into Amnesia and enjoy a monster free game.

I think that they fixed it
Edit: Ah... it didn't work because I renamed the folder before lunching the game

I tested it in two areas:

1. The prison. There was a grunt roaming about in the save game - he isn't there anymore.

2. The first water zone. There is no splashy demon chasing me about anymore.

Obviously kills a lot of the horror of the game but we need to get that bar filled.

Monsters is actually the best part of the game, I find it damn funny when you hiding and then when mosnter lost you from their sight you just stalk them till they notice you following them and repeat

I love when they yelling random gibberish in furious.

To me the scariest parts of that game weren't the monsters but just the environment and atmosphere. It was scarier when I thought there was a monster around but I didn't see him than when one was in plain sight.

I think the funniest part of this game is running around with tense music and creepy ambiance and there is nothing threatening around

Yeah, if you realize what is actually dangerous about the game, it seems not so bad.

The sound plays a big part in the game. The same is true for L4D, which uses sound well to enhance the game.

However, since the audio is such a poignant part of the experience, you could try playing without sound if you want it to be less scary.
