The Forgotten City

Later this year, Modern Storyteller will bring The Forgotten City to the Xbox One. This game blends time loops and murder mysteries together in one package deal.

The Forgotten City was already announced for the PC so this Xbox One announcement today is all-new for both me and you. The Forgotten City will be shown off at PAX East later this month. If you're going to PAX East, be sure to stop by booth 13121 for a chance to play the demo.

If the name "The Forgotten City" sounds familiar, it may be because you played the mod version of it for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. That's right, this game was born from a mod of the same name and will soon be its very own game. The mod itself has already amassed over 2 million downloads across the PC and Xbox platforms. The new stand-alone game is a re-imagining of the mod and is being made with Unreal Engine 4.

The gameplay elements from the mod will carry over to this game. However, it will be vastly upgraded in nearly every regard. You can check out The Forgotten City site or its Steam page for more details.

Something supernatural lurks in the underground ruins of an ancient Roman city. Amidst the crumbling architecture lies a portal leading an unsuspecting adventurer back in time to join 26 trapped explorers on their last day alive. Life in this mythological paradise may seem idyllic, but a set of strict laws must be followed by every citizen, for if any one of them breaks a single rule, all of their lives will be snuffed out by an unknown force which turns them to gold.

Cleverly exploit a time loop in the style of Russian Doll / Groundhog Day by interrogating diverse residents, gathering their secrets and putting together the pieces of a giant interpersonal puzzle. Staying one step ahead of fate, solve an ancient mystery to avert disaster and re-write history. The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom, rewarding only the savviest adventurers for making tough moral decisions and thinking laterally with the best of all possible endings.

Explore issues that challenge our conception of morality including moral relativism, extremism, collective punishment and the psychosocial effects of mass surveillance.
