Game Notes

Forgotten City

Adventure Gamers has a post on a game that was a Skyrim mod called Forgotten City.

I’m unfamiliar with the mod, but I like the ancient mysteries to-be-solved aspect of the upcoming release which adds to what the mod apparently offered.

Deep underground in an ancient Roman city, 26 trapped explorers lay dead because one of them broke a mysterious law. Within, a portal leads back into the past, allowing you to change their fate – or witness their deaths in a time loop for eternity. Fortunately, hope remains. The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom, inviting players to manipulate the timeline, Groundhog Day-style, so events play out differently. By talking with diverse characters, making tough choices in moral dilemmas, and thinking laterally, you can unlock vastly different endings.

A Fallout Universe Timeline

From PC Gamer, a really great Fallout Timeline so you can see where everything fits in, particularly of interest is Fallout 76.  Definitely not our world they’re working with.

Grimmwood

Also via PC Gamer  a “social survival” game whose description somehow initially reminded me of elements of Fallout 76.     https://www.pcgamer.com/social-rpg-grimmwood-will-be-out-next-week/

In Grimmwood, you and up to 30 players spawn on a procedurally generated map and have to build a town together. Monsters will attack when the sun goes down, and the waves become more powerful each night. You can explore, gather resources and craft on your own, but as Chris discovered, you end up having to relying on other players to survive.

Looking at the publisher’s website, it seems quite different.  More of an old rpg.  It’s hard to picture how 30 people could interact.  Intriguing though.
