The Forgotten City
We're a small Melbourne-based studio on a mission to show that video games can be the ultimate storytelling medium.
Modern Storyteller began as Nick Pearce’s one-man modding alias (Modding / Modern Storyteller). After creating a wildly successful mod, The Forgotten City - the first in history to win a national Writers’ Guild award, and with more than 3 million downloads - Nick left behind a ten year legal career and handpicked a team of industry veterans to form Modern Storyteller, the studio.Our mission
Modern Storyteller's goal is to make emotionally engaging, intellectually stimulating games for adults who enjoy figuring things out for themselves.
