The Kickstarter campaign for cozy, warm narrative game Forgotten Fields is now entering its third week on the platform and is currently just under 40% backed. Originally the game's demo was available as part of the Steam Summer Festival but is now available on popular independent game platforms itch.io and Gamejolt.

Forgotten Fields follows the story of Sid, a writer currently struggling for inspiration but desperate for his next book grant. What makes Sid’s creative block all the worse is the deadline for the grant is today - a Sunday!

Sid’s creative struggles are amplified when he’s invited by his mother to a small party at his childhood home. This is the final time he’ll visit the house he grew up in before it’s sold, but that doesn’t make Sid any more interested in the event he feels obliged to attend. Join Sid as he reluctantly journeys back home, meets friends, and relives old memories in this game about nostalgia, creativity, and the passage of time.

Following a tightly written narrative, players will get the chance to play through sections of Sid’s half-baked book idea as he experiences sudden bursts of inspiration, and even make some key decisions that affect the outcome of both stories.

 

What the press has said about the Forgotten Fields demo.

The Escapist 

"Rather than emphasizing the tension and stress through extensive dialogue or exposition, Forgotten Fields lets the feeling speak for themselves."

Keen Gamer

"There is a distinct attraction to the time of one's formative years. Enter Forgotten Fields, an indie game that plays devil's advocate for suck indulgence."

Alpha Beta Gamer

"A trip home well worth taking"

Forgotten Fields is planned for a release towards the end of this year, initially releasing on PC via Steam. You can play the demo now on itch.io and Gamejolt.
