Frostwood Interactive, the developer behind the murder mystery adventure Rainswept, in association with Dino Digital, Mumbai based independent game publisher, has been working hard on their next title, Forgotten Fields – A narrative adventure featuring deep characters, an emotional story and a warm, atmospheric game world.
Forgotten Fields follows the story of Sid, a writer currently struggling for inspiration but desperate for his next book grant. What makes Sid’s creative block all the worse is the deadline for the grant is today – a Sunday!
Sid’s creative struggles are amplified when he’s invited by his mother to a small party at his childhood home. This is the final time he’ll visit the house he grew up in before it’s sold, but that doesn’t make Sid any more interested in the event he feels obliged to attend. Join Sid as he reluctantly journeys back home, meets friends, and relives old memories in this game about nostalgia, creativity, and the passage of time.
