'Forgotlings' Is A Cinematic Action/Adventure Coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PC In 2024 - Screens & Trailer

Forgotlings is a cinematic action adventure set in a magical land teeming with forgotten objects.

Take charge as the captain of The Volare, Fig’s ship and base of operations alongside his crew of forgotlings. Save settlements from pesky bandits and other critters through combat mechanics that blend hack-and-slash with strategy and stealth.

Choose the next destination in a 2.5D semi open-world metroidvania, from uncovering ancient secrets that lie buried in the desert Dunes, to climbing the magnificent Agora Mountains and exploring the majestic Falls. Learn about forgotling psychology to better respond in interactive conversations and build relationships and allies that could determine the fate of a tribe. 

Engage in side-quests or earn a reputation by challenging forgotlings to a game of INA, a popular board game transcending tribe affiliations. Search for Power Stones to include in customizable INA decks, or mine for crystals in the environment to place as bets. Join tournaments and climb the ranks to become a Grandmaster, or simply play a match as a form of icebreaker to unlock dialogues and connect with forgotlings.

Thousands of traditionally hand-drawn animation frames combined with full voice acting and a score featuring choir ensemble Theatre of Voices (Arrival, Mary Magdalene) provide an immersive experience deep in an imaginative world and an emotional story about things we have forgotten and the power of diversity.

“The main theme in Forgotlings is ‘Purpose’ – despite living in complex societies with more connectivity than ever before, we still see pervasive loneliness” said Alfred Nguyen, CEO & Creative Director at ThroughLine Games. “We hope Forgotlings resonates with players in today's world, providing an imaginative lens through which to view existential threats.”

Developer ThroughLine Games has launched a Forgotlings Kickstarter campaign, looking to raise $106,934.
