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.

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.

Before you dive into Ancient Rome next moth, you can find out even more about this mod-turned-game on the official website.
