‘A Place for the Unwilling’ Has Launched

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.

Video game player, card game enthusiast, and all around, general purpose geek. If I'm not brewing up my next cool deck idea, I'm probably trying that new card game that just hit the shelf.
Video games are my jam, but cards are my life.
