Dino Digital have announced Forgotten Fields, and that the game will have a demo during the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition.
As stated in the press release (via Games Press) the narrative adventure game was developed by Frostwood Interactive. The story follows Sid, a writer struggling to write his next book with a deadline today (on a Sunday no less), and needs his next grant.
His mother then invites him to a party at his childhood home, before it is sold. While he reluctantly goes, Sid soon meets friends, and brings back old memories to the surface.
As Sid gets bursts of inspiration, the player will be able to see this story, and make decisions that will affect not just Sid’s book, but the story of the game.
You can find the reveal trailer below.
You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
Sid is a fiction author struggling with a creative block, attempting to recapture the feelings of inspiration he felt when he was younger. In order to pay the bills, he needs to think up a story and apply for a grant – the deadline is today – a lazy Sunday in the middle of summer.
On this Sunday, his struggle is disturbed by an invitation to attend an unavoidable family obligation – The place Sid grew up in is about to be sold, and his mother wants him to come home for a small party so he can say goodbye to it. With the deadline approaching and his creative juices having frozen, this is not something he’s looking forward to.
Join Sid as he reluctantly journeys back home, meets old friends, relives memories and attempts to kick start his creativity back into gear. Also take part in his creative process as you play through interactive sections depicting the story he’s attempting to write.
Forgotten Fields is a warm, cozy game about nostalgia, creativity, appreciating the present, and the passage of time – a meditation on impermanence and the shortness of life.
Forgotten Fields launches late 2020 for Windows PC (via Steam).
