Endure the Passage of Time in Forgotten Fields
Today, solo developer Armaan Sandhu and his one-man studio Frostwood Interactive announced the upcoming release date for the visually-striking title Forgotten Fields. The project was achieved through an overfunded Kickstarter campaign that propelled the game’s indie popularity to a substantial height. Its impending arrival to Steam next month solidifies the game’s fan admiration that stemmed from its crowdfunding race.
In the Forgotten Fields, you follow the story of Sid, a writer going through an artistic block. Coupled with a desire to apply for a vital grant, Sid is invited to a complicated family reunion at his childhood home. However, it’s now being sold, and this unexpected event will ring back memories for the writer as he attempts to craft a story. Forgotten Fields plays out like an interactive story with periodic sections dedicated to creating Sid’s project for the grant. The multiple nostalgic corners of Sid’s life will come at him from all angles. Ultimately, it’s a narrative surrounding the themes of soulful remembrance, creativity, family, and the pursuit of inner truth.
In addition, a reveal trailer from last year presents a slideshow of Sid’s interactions with other individuals, countryside landscapes, and writing aspects. It’s all backed with a piano melody that encapsulates the important journey for Sid. Much of the game’s design draws its imagination and originality from the real sights of Goa, India. This was something Armaan Sandhu was thrilled to accomplish with the Forgotten Fields:
I’m really excited to share a game world based off Goa, India with the rest of the world. I think it’ll be a very new and unique experience, and I can’t wait to see what players think of it!”
Forgotten Fields is launching onto Steam next month on April 14 for £11.39 / $14.99 / €12.49. Correspondingly, players can take advantage of the 15% discount that’s attached for the game’s first week of release. In the meantime, there is a demo on the game’s Steam page if you wish to check it out. Let us know in the comments what your thoughts are on Forgotten Fields.
