About The Forgotten City

About this game

The Forgotten City is a mystery adventure game of exploration and deduction, and a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed mod that won a national Writers’ Guild award and racked up over 3 million downloads.

Combat is an option, but violence will only get you so far. Only by questioning an intertwined community of colourful characters, 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.

  • Explore an open-world ancient Roman city with historically authentic art, architecture, costumes and customs
  • Investigate a gripping, non-linear mystery with multiple endings
  • Become entwined in the lives of richly detailed, deeply interactive characters
  • Grapple with moral dilemmas which have life-and-death consequences
  • Play as whoever you want, by choosing your character’s gender, origin and backstory
  • Solve problems with reason, charm, bribery, intimidation, violence, or by cleverly exploiting the time-loop

Enjoyed the mod?
If you liked the mod, you’re going to love the stand-alone game. We've taken the best elements of the mod, re-written the script, which is now more than twice the length of the original at 80,000+ words, and added plenty of exciting new twists, endings, and surprises. Walk the streets of a brand new city. Get to know re-imagined characters. Solve challenging new puzzles with new gameplay mechanics, and enjoy an all-new orchestral score and professional voice acting. This is the story we always wanted to tell, for you to enjoy all over again - and again.

The Forgotten City was developed by a core team of three people over four years. Your support allows us to continue doing what we love, and we are deeply grateful.

Good, not great

Bopoe

Despite the great reviews, I did not find The Forgotten City to be very good. No aspect of the game is terrible, but likewise, no aspect is great. It largely fails as an "adventure" game because the objectives or always too simple to require much thought, and usually have quest markers. But, staying true to its roots as a Skyrim mod, the game also forces you into the occasional mediocre dungeon delve, with only 1 weapon and 1 enemy type for the entire game. The story does little to redeem the overall experience as well. I don't recommend this game for anything more than $10. It took me 6 relatively boring hours to achieve all endings.

Light RPG with very well written story, short playtime and gameplay wise not very deep. You play this for the story foremost, which is very good though. If you love story games, this is 100% for you.

Sweet!! If you are a sucker for ancient Rome and FallOut3, This Is For You! Missions are quite scripted, Run from A to B. But you can hang around, as much u like! The Forgotten City is originally a Skyrim-Mod, so the engine is a bit old, but it is ok! Hugely Recommended!!
