Everything you have wanted to know about The Forgotten City from the game developer

If you’re an avid gamer who’s looking to scratch that incessant gaming itch, then you’ll certainly love The Forgotten City. This upcoming adventure game was among Skyrim’s most enjoyable quest mods – it even won a Writer’s Guild award. Now, it has transformed into a standalone title with an enthralling storyline and beautiful graphics. EIP Gaming was fortunate enough to get an exclusive interview with the game developer.

The Forgotten City Plot

In The Forgotten City, we travel back in time to solve a murder mystery and explore a remarkably detailed Roman city. Time here is of the essence. This game is cast in the breathtaking city of Ancient Rome, which provides a fascinating anthropological and architectural focus.

In this city, sin and antisocial behaviour are shunned and heavily punished. However, characters in the game struggle to understand what sin is. Murder certainly meets the criteria, but does telling a lie count as a sin if it gets someone killed?

What about being sexually queer or paying reverence to the ‘wrong’ deity? Each character in The Forgotten City Skyrim tries to find answers to these questions. To add insult to injury, there’s the suspicious temple that threatens to push everybody into a civil war.

The Forgotten City is set to be released on 28th July 2021. Morality seems to play a central theme in the game’s story – each character is entangled in a moral or philosophical enigma that needs a timely riposte, revealing the dynamic opinions and varied thought processes that existed in old-age dynasties.

Playing the game, more questions are raised than answers. People’s diverse points of view are tested and their idea of morality is interrogated. Time travelling is an exciting fantasy that’s held by most people. But what would happen if you were suddenly taken back to ancient Rome? Would you “live like the Romans” or maintain your established set of values and principles? These are some of the interesting questions that The Forgotten City raises.

If you’ve played the Forgotten City’s mod before, player movements in this standalone title will feel quite familiar. All elements of a fun adventure game are featured here: a non-linear mystery, thoughtful conversations, time loops and multiple endings, among others.

For every choice you make in The Forgotten City, there’s a specific consequence. Be ready to face an assortment of moral dilemmas whose repercussions could mean life or death. Interestingly, there are multiple tricks you can exploit to solve challenges that you come across in the game. You’ll also get the chance to explore the scintillating architecture, beautiful artwork and luxurious dressing of Ancient Rome.

The script for this stand-alone game was re-written to make it feel like an entirely different adventure game, while at the same time providing fans with the comforting familiarity of the previous mod. Although some puzzles in The Forgotten City are inspired by the mod, all mysteries are new. This coming-of-age philosophical game promises more fun and thrills – it’s bound to excite many mature gamers out there.
