Description

The Forgotten City is a time travel murder mystery set in a mythological city.

Deep underground in an ancient Roman city, twenty-six trapped explorers lay dead because one of them broke a mysterious law. Within, a portal leads back into the past, allowing you to change their fate – or witness their deaths in a time loop for eternity.

Fortunately, hope remains. The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom, inviting you to manipulate the timeline, Groundhog Day-style, so events play out differently. By talking with diverse characters, making tough choices in moral dilemmas, and thinking laterally, you can unlock vastly different endings.

The Forgotten City is a game about the human condition, for adults who enjoy figuring things out for themselves.

History

The Forgotten City is a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed mod downloaded by more than 1.6 million gamers, the first mod in history to win a national Writers' Guild award.

Enjoyed the mod? The Forgotten City retains all the elements which made the original beloved while improving every aspect and adding plenty of surprises. It features a new city, redesigned characters and dialogue, original lore, fresh twists and endings, added combat and wall-climbing mechanics, an all-new orchestral score, professional voice acting, and motion capture animations.

Features

  • Investigate a dark, gripping mystery full of twists and intrigue
  • Solve problems your own way, with reason, charm, bribery, stealth, threats, violence - or cleverly exploit the time-loop
  • Explore a stunning and intricate city rendered with Unreal Engine
  • Interrogate richly detailed characters with interwoven lives
  • Grapple with moral dilemmas with life-and-death consequences
  • Choose your own gender, race, and backstory
  • Listen to an achingly beautiful orchestral score and first class voice acting
