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

Key features:

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

Enjoyed the mod?

The Forgotten City retains all the elements you know and love while improving 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. Enjoy added combat and wall-climbing mechanics, an all-new orchestral score, professional voice acting, and motion capture animations.

Note:

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