From developer Modern Storyteller comes a game based on a popular mod, The Forgotten City.

Players will travel 2,000 years into the past and relive the final days of an ancient Roman city. In this place, if one person commits a sin, everyone in the city will perish. Now stuck in a time loop, players must begin to investigate what is happening, with the mysteries behind the city achievable in a non-linear fashion. You can solve problems through bribery, charm and reason, or simply use violence in some sections. You can even exploit the time loop for the desired outcome, but your choices will have consequences so be careful. 

The Forgotten City is a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that won a national Writers’ Guild award and racked up over 3 million downloads. The Forgotten City will be available for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, and the Nintendo Switch.

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.
