The Forgotten City is a mature narrative-driven game, and a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed mod that won a national Writers’ Guild award and racked up over 2.5 million downloads.

Trapped in a secret underground city during the Roman Empire, twenty-six lost souls cling to life. In this precarious utopia, if one person breaks the mysterious Golden Rule, everyone dies. As a time-traveller drawn two thousand years into the past, you’ll relive their final moments in an endless loop, exploring and interrogating, and changing the course of the day with each secret you uncover. Only by cleverly exploiting the time loop and making difficult moral choices can you hope to solve this epic mystery. Here, your decisions matter. The fate of the city is in your hands.

Key features:

  • Explore an authentic, open-world ancient Roman city brought to life with Unreal Engine
  • Become entwined in the lives of richly detailed, deeply interactive characters
  • Grapple with moral dilemmas which have life-and-death consequences
  • Investigate a gripping, non-linear mystery with multiple endings
  • Role-play as whoever you want, by choosing your own sex, race and backstory
  • Solve problems your own way, with reason, charm, bribery, stealth, intimidation, or by cleverly exploiting the time-loop

Enjoyed the mod?

The Forgotten City retains all the elements you know and love while leveling up every aspect and adding plenty of surprises. Walk the streets of a brand new city. Get to know re-imagined characters. Sink into original lore with fresh twists and endings. Solve challenging new puzzles, and enjoy an all-new orchestral score and professional voice acting. The Forgotten City is the story we always wanted to tell, for you to enjoy all over again. And again.

Hello everyone!

We're extremely excited to share the latest cinematic trailer for The Forgotten City! Check it out below:



As you can see, we're now on track to release the game in Summer 2021, a few months later than we had hoped. We're really sorry to keep you waiting so long, but the pandemic has slowed our progress, we need a little more time to polish up the game so that you (as well as all the other users on Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5) have the best possible experience. This game has been an absolutely massive undertaking for a small core team of 3 developers, and we're continuing to work as hard as we possibly can. Seriously. We're really grateful for your continued patience and support. Thank you! :-)

If you'd like to know the exact release date, please wishlist the game on Steam here and you'll be the first to know!

Not sure if anyone will even see this, but I just wanted to say, even if this doesn't come out on the mac platform, I will still buy it full price no questions asked just to support you guys. This is still my favorite Skyrim mod (finally something that doesn't insult my intelligence) and I was blown away to find that it is becoming it's own game. Good luck guys and GG.
