The Forgotten City is the first mod in history to win a national Writers' Guild award with its script. It is a critically acclaimed expansion mod offering a unique 6 - 8 hour experience: a murder mystery investigation set in an ancient underground city. You'll need to solve it using your wits, and the ability to travel through time. It has a dark, non-linear story in which you'll interrogate suspects, explore the city and its many secrets, and navigate challenging moral dilemmas. It features multiple endings, an original orchestral score, and professionally voiced dialogue.

"The story here is, no doubt, the best of any Skyrim mod. It's so good, that it really reminds me of Blockbuster movies like Inception, Interstellar, and especially Edge of Tomorrow." MxR Mods

"Amazing... it's a super dynamic story... how the mod utilizes paradoxes and time loops is fantastic... one of the most thriling quests we've ever played..." BroDual

“Undeniably impressive.” PC Gamer  

“The production values, for a mod, are completely ridiculous. The Forgotten City is a pretty big deal.” Kotaku[]

Inception meets Skyrim.

This is just great. If Bethesda had done it, we would have bad voices and pay for it.

the rare find of a voiced mod

This was as absolutely outstanding as everyone said it was. Beautiful, brilliant, satisfying storytelling on every level.

An absolutly incredible mod, so much so I'm suprised its not DLC. Everything is well thought out even down to the science behind the endings; and while the voice acting is not perfect, the dialog and character interactions more than make up for it! Rated 5/5

This is one of the best mods i've ever seen

The voice acting is much better than than most mod va out there, some actors do better than the main games va even (though thats not a very hard thing to do actually).

I'm simply blown away. First quest mod i've tried, and it's actually better done and better written then most quests in the game. The only thing that is a bit off is the voice acting which isn't always the best, but I mean it's normal, being a mod, and it does the job fine. Really great mod.
