Silver Spook Games Presents



"Creating new homeworlds always means a lot of trial and error.  Our world... well, this one's an error."









Settlers of a new space colony got off to a rocky start, but eventually built up a happy, thriving metropolis... Then the machines took over. 

Noria, a young engineer, lost everything the day the automated police forces went haywire.  Now, on this failed new homeworld, she needs to survive the hostile environment, dodge the malevolent machines lurking everywhere, and manage her own painful memories of lost family and broken hopes.

The Creators

Knux Vee One (Chaos Nova) - Writing
Laura Loolaid (Chaos Nova) - Writing
Christian Miller (Neofeud) - Art, Programming

Thanks for stopping by, guys!

Oh, how exciting it looks!!!  ;-D

And I'm still waiting for Neofeud to pass Steam Greenlight.  :(

You're on fire, man! Looks great so far, keep it up! :D

Will it have some connections to Neofeud, other than the setting (characters, events etc.)? :)

That certainly was quick.

Again, from what I saw of the early version of Neofeud, I have a lot of faith that this'll be amazing.

Just thought I'd let you know that, if you ever want me to give any help (whether that be giving feedback or outsourcing any of the script to me), feel free to give me a shout.

Also, do you want me to promote Forgotten City through my social media outlets as well, like I did with Neofeud?

Thanks guys for the kind feedback!

@CrashPL: We're currently in the concept phase but it looks like it might be connected to the world of Neofeud. :)   Haven't quite nailed the concept down yet though.

Today's art progress on the adventure game successor to Neofeud! Things just got a whole lot more H.R. Giger-esque.   I wasn't really feeling this city scene, until my subconscious vomited up that somewhat Alien Covenant-like spacecraft / advanced alien building sitting way in the back there.  I call it, "The Anomaly", for now.  :)

@Cassie: Thanks!  As requested, here is the livestream of working on this.

I think the only background that's ever taken me longer was The Neofeud Sky Palace.

Worth it, though, I think!

holy cow, so this is what your up to? ;)  keep discovering little gems about this forum

Man, cant wait for this, its like a mix of bladerunner, constantine, starwars, terminator and much more..  so many ingredients here that I love.

Whats your time frame on this one?

Love the city image there, you have really gone above and beyond with the finer detailing and shading, in particular the left half of the image.
This must have taken a while and as I just saw you mention in another thread I can understand this level of detailing taking a week or more.

Super well done, I will continue to keep an eye on this.

Thanks everyone for your support and kind feedback!

@Tycho: It took about a week to get this entire thing done.  The way I design, I kind of do concept art + the game art simultaneously, so part of the process here was just figuring out what the game itself was going to look like, before going into the, "churning out the art" phase.  This scene in particular is the biggest scenes, and so I wanted to really nail it, to identify the look, the feel, and to light the player's interest to keep on going with this game.

You're absolutely right about the Bladerunner, Terminator, Star Wars, and other influences.  If you haven't yet already, I would check out Neofeud, which has all of those influences, and more (it's almost a love letter to Terminator and Bladerunner). ;)  http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=54627.0
