From Press Release:
A brand new trailer and gameplay video dropped today for The Forgotten City, a time-looping murder mystery based on the hugely popular Writers’ Guild Award-winning mod of the same name. The new trailer, showing off more of the game’s mysterious underground setting, was revealed as part of the Summer of Gaming event over the weekend and along with it, a huge new chunk of gameplay for fans to dig into.
The Forgotten City transports players to an ancient Rome-like setting and traps them in a precarious utopia where 26 lost souls cling to life – and if one person sins, everyone dies. Reliving the same day over and over again, players will need to cleverly exploit the time loop, Groundhog Day-style.
Developer Modern Storyteller is partnering with publisher Dear Villagers (ScourgeBringer, Recompile) to expand the scope of The Forgotten City and deliver the experience the studio has envisioned since the days of the award-winning mod that was downloaded over 2.5 million times.
The Forgotten City will release in Winter 2020 for PC and Xbox One.
