Game Information

Genre: Adventure

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, socialise, explore the town freely, and play a role in the city’s hierarchy.

Combining the exquisite 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 colour and Eldritch nightmares.

The city is hungry. It will devour us all. Dream with caution.

A unique an interesting narrative driven that could be more polished but that it's engaging experience if you are willing to suffer it's not so good beginning hours.

The main thing preventing me from enjoying A Place For The Unwilling is that currently there are dozens of little things that don’t work quite the way they’re supposed to, and while they don’t exactly stop you from playing the game, they’re still bloody annoying.

A Place for the Unwilling offers a delightfully sinister tale of mystery and destruction with a staggering number of branching paths that guarantee no playthrough will be the same.
