Developer Modern Storyteller will be launching The Forgotten City, based on the critically acclaimed Skyrim mod in winter 2020.
The studio has partnered with Dear Villagers, the publisher behind titles Edge of Eternity and Bury me, my Love. This collaboration enables the team to improve the visuals and overhaul the setting, narrative design, and characters (via professional voice acting).
Nick Pearce, managing director and founder of Modern Storyteller said “The support of Dear Villagers has already been an incredible boon, allowing me to focus on a world and narrative more detailed than I ever imagined when working on the mod.”
The Forgotten City is a narrative-driven, time loop adventure RPG set in an underground utopian ancient Roman city. Citizens live in fear brought by the golden rule—the many shall suffer for the sins of the one.
Players will need to problem solve and make difficult moral decisions including exploiting the endless time-loop to uncover the murder mystery with multiple endings.
The Forgotten City will be available on PC and Xbox One in 2020. The game was originally anticipated to launch this year.
