The game will be playable at PAX East 2019 in Boston from March 28 to 31 at booth 13121.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
The Forgotten City is a time loop murder mystery set in a mythological city.
Deep underground in an ancient Roman city, twenty-six trapped explorers lay dead because one of them broke a mysterious law. Reliving that fateful day over and over again, you’ll need to cleverly exploit the time loop, Groundhog Day-style, to avert disaster! Face tough moral choices while interrogating diverse characters, gathering their secrets, and putting together the pieces of a giant interpersonal puzzle.
The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom and respects players’ time and intelligence, rewarding lateral thinking with the best of all possible endings.
The Forgotten City is a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed mod with more than 2 million downloads, and the first mod in history to win a national Writers’ Guild award.
