Rock Paper Shotgun didn’t forget, and you shouldn’t either: The Forgotten City, a time loop murder mystery from Modern Storyteller, will come PC and Xbox One in late 2019. Dominic Tarason shares some reasons why you should remember this re-imagining of the award-winning mod with more than 2 million downloads across PC and Xbox:
While I’ve never played the original, I plan on taking a look at the original prototype after playing the new version, just for curiosity’s sake. I’m intrigued to see how well the new version handles a Majora’s Mask-esque interwoven web of causes and effects and just how many endings it can lead to – branching narratives aren’t easy. As an aside, it’s been an interesting couple years for modders going pro, with 3D Realms assembling retro dream teams for the Quake-based Wrath and the Duke-inspired Ion Maiden. I’m always happy to see a talented crew of hobbyists go pro, and I’m excited to see how well the reimagining treats the mod.
