The Kickstarter campaign for cozy, warm narrative game Forgotten Fields has now come to an end, hitting a total of 115% funding. The overwhelming backing for the campaign meant that the first stretch goal was achieved; bonus outfits for the lead character Sid. In an update to the supporting community solo developer Armaan (Frostwood Interactive) said ‘it’s hard to describe how much it means to me. All this support has motivated me even more to make this game a special, meaningful experience.’
Forgotten Fields is currently being developed by Frostwood Interactive (Rainswept) and will be published by Dino Digital. The game 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.
