Developer ALPixel Games today released their macabre narrative mystery A Place for the Unwilling for PC and Mac via Steam for $14.99 / £11.39 / €14.99, and released a new trailer showing more of the game’s enigmatic backstory.
Watch the new launch trailer and a gameplay video trailer below.
A Place for the Unwilling is a branching narrative adventure set in the final 21 days of a dying city. Every decision you make will shape your surroundings, and the city’s fate. However, the clock is ticking – and the city carries on, with or without you. Speak to everyone from eerie politicians to chain-smoking child anarchists. Work as a trader, socialize, explore the town freely, and play a role in the city’s hierarchy.
Combining the narrative depth and exploration of Sunless Sea with the curious setup of Majora’s Mask – plus a dash of Lovecraft – A Place for the Unwilling is a rich narrative experience where player choices really do count, set in a Dickensian world of color and Eldritch nightmares.
