New Patch - V2.8 Major Update!

I'm pleased to announce that many hair ripping issues has been fixed:

  • Fixed Kitchen Cut Scene View/Dialogue Issue
  • Raised Damage on the P38, MP40 & G43
  • Fixed an issue with the FG-42, you couldn't pick it up/unlock it despite having the achievement necessary
  • Removed bullet tracers while ironsighted
  • Fixed the common crash many has experienced, the crash was caused by dropping inventory items.
  • Hopefully fixed an issue preventing people to get to the main menu (on launch)
  • Fixed an issue related to subtitles
  • Some music and other generic sounds weren't affected by the music or game volume, this has now been fixed
  • Changed the Stephano Collectible pickup sound
  • Added a new easter egg in the Kitchen area... And NO, it's not a PewDiePie easter egg...

IMPORTANT:
Due to a big change in the inventory items server side logic using your previous saves might come in conflict with the new items (only dropped items).

Best Regards,
Bernt

- Enjoy

About This Game

Through the eyes of Grobuskna Vladinov, you'll be taken through a ride that has stained itself to Grobuskna's memory.
Losing his parents during the holocaust left Grobuskna with many questions, he couldn't accept to let the villain be forgotten.
Having a father that worked close with the resistance during world war two was a big risk in itself.
But as Grobuskna once said, to let good die and bad live is something no man can accept.

Grobuskna is a detective, as a side thing he's been trying to keep track of remaining Nazi officers spread around the world.
Despite the fact that he knows who took his parents, he still doesn't know where he's hiding.
Until an unknown call reaches Grobuskna's office, an unknown call but an expected call that'll change everything...

    Despite this being a free to play game, I still find myself compelled to write a negative review for it.

    The core gameplay is broken. Enemies move too quickly, and are extremely difficult to shoot (pretty much impossible once they are right up next to you). The exploration is boring and the level design is overly complex at times. The main menu and inventory use this awful LOUD “ding” sound when you highlight different things. It’s incredibly off putting and just plain annoying.

    I’m surprised I made it over an hour into the game, but I suppose my love for the source engine is stronger than I thought. Not strong enough to finish it though.

    It's a shame that the developer was so focused on making Youtube Fodder for guys like Pewdiepie/Markiplier etc. That he actually could've had something pretty good. I can't make a full list of all bad things here because there are simply too many. From getting stuck on world geometry, to bad stock scream effects, to the completely still 3D models that slide across a hallway. This has all the signs of a truely awful game...

    But there are signs of potential here. Even if they were unintentional, there is some good things in this game. The level design of the mansion, is actually really well done. I know it was heavily inspired by the Resident Evil 1/Remake mansion, and its almost completely ripped off, but just different enough that it stands out. The music and atmosphere during the time you spend wandering the mansion is also really fitting and sets the mood right.

    To make this short, The Forgotten Ones is awful.. But I can recommend it on the basis that it's free, and has great level design that makes me hope for a bigger project like this.

    Pros:
    Ability to drive,
    Wonderful maps,
    More items to grab and use as weapons,
    Soundtrack is great,
    and of course, it's free.

    Cons:
    Lack of Gamepad support.
    Unrealistic Running Speed and slowdown.
    The voice acting could do a little more polishing.

    Major Con:
    Whoawhoawhoa, what the ♥♥♥♥ is this? Pewdiepie references? PEWDIEPIE?! Ok, this somewhat ♥♥♥♥es me off. If you want Pewdiepie's attention, it can be attracted without having all these stephanos and crap laying all around.
    With that happening, you can also attract other gamers as well who would support this game, but the Pewdiepie references are just too far.

    May as well slap "Pewdiepie: The game" over the title.

    From the trailer to the beginning of the game it looks promising. Atmosphere is great. The voice is acting is a MEH. But when you get to the hotel, OH BOY arnt you in for a treat. When you get to the hotel, the "action" and horror start. It has some ok horror, the AI however... is not ok. The enemies in this game are a suppose to be a scary 2 headed creature but in acuality, they are robots that ATTACK NON-STOP! I was stuck on the first level because it will throw 2 ONE COMMAND ROBOTS to destroy you. OH, the only way to get a LMG in this game... beat the game or donate. Getting an INFINITE AMMO LMG requires you to PAY or TRY and beat this Amnesia FPS knock off. The only and I mean ONLY 2 things they should work on is a little on voice acting and a ♥♥♥♥TON on AI. This Game deserves a 5/10. It would be 4/10 if it wasnt for the games atmosphere. (SIDE NOTE: Im still on the first level)

    From a promising start with decent atmosphere, the game takes a nose dive as soon as you enter the hotel. Could have been good, but horrible bugs, horrible gameplay, and horrible scares definitely don't add up to a good horror game.

    i am a big fan of horror games, no dought about it. but this was not a horror game that i liked. the story was a bit effencive.jews from hollicosts haunting this guy. i mean come on. plus the fact that there are guns in this game makes you feel safe. in a horror game u should be able to survive without weapens. save that for zomies and moster games but not for a hauting game. not feeling safe, thats what makes a game scary. im not saying a this is a horrible game but it did not reach its expectations. and yes i get it its free and im not a big graghics guy, if u focus on graghics thatn u have no tasst in games but the story was just not solid. it tried to scare u with ghosts of jews from a devistating time. which did not make it that scary if this game was replaised by deminds and took a away the guns changed the story, and gae a twist to the end it would ahave been pretty scary.all in all i would not recemend this game to you. dont wate ur time down loading it.waste of space and time. and also the game is extremely buggy.i would not recemend this game

Hell I like cry of fear then this game. So yeah I hate this game...But if any of you who like it, its aright you like I hate the game we don't need any rage chat on this one game its good but it's bad at the same time. So I give it a no

    Oh my lord, where do I start. I don't consider my self a horror game connoisseur, but I can tell you very much so that this game is atrociously bad! One of the things that really irked me was the constant references to Pewdiepie. The designer made this game specifically for the "Pewdiebro's" and it absolutely shows. If you make a game oriented towards a certain demographic then you tend to alienate the rest.

    Another thing that proves exceedingly annoying is that this horror game fails scare. Nothing but jump scares and looping ambient noise to give the illusion of horror. This game does not evoke fear it can only startle, and that is extremely dissapointing. Also this the game is very predictable which also adds to the fail factor. Seriously, if there was a betting game on jump scares in this game i would be wearing a golden hat by the end of this game.

    And the final thing that broke me was the game play. Abysmal; is the word I would use to describe it. This game is mainly centered around combat but has aspects of survival horror. Strangely enough its hard to run out of ammo, but the trade-off here is that the combat sucks rusty nails. You are given guns that do the equivant damage of hawking a luegee at the scrambling monstrosity of the current minute. And to seal the deal when you get hit by the enemey, consider your *ss dead because when you get hit your camera jerks like its trying to give an epileptic person a seizure, making it harder to hit the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. But the fun doesn't stop there, oh no no no. when you get hit you also lose the ability to run. Making it f*cking useless to fight in the first place. And you HAVE to fight these things, you can't out run them. Your silly ♥♥♥ will be leading congo lines all across the map trying to find what the hell to do next because you cant find the current item to progress.

    Thank god this is a free game because if i had payed for this game... Oh my god i would murder somebody!

    FINAL RATING: UNGODLY BAD

    Okay, ill start by being nice here, which is why this is a positive review. I saw this in the free-to-play horror section, and it looked promising, so I decided to try it out in a lets-play. In the course of the two episodes that i did off the bat, I got stuck, mostly because I didn't look for a slightly hidden key, the rest because it didn't tell me that I NEEDED a key. In that sense, the game itself (the environment, the ambiance) is decent. The gameplay, however, is a different story.

    No instructions were given for controls, and, assuming becaue it was made on source engine or a half life 2 mod, I kept using E. Wrong.

    The driving is all over the bloody place, the car will spin out while turning all the time, and is prone to getting stuck ALOT.

    The game is RIDICULOUSLY dark. I turned up the brightness all the way to make for a better video, and its still dark as ♥♥♥♥.

    The jumpscares were expected, as I knew it was a horror/suspense game, so I dealt with it. BUT. The monster flitting around just gets to be slightly confusing more than startling. I also am a giant wuss, so i jumped at first, props to that.

    The enemies are unnerving to say the least, with Cry of Fear and Afraid of Monsters-like movements, and are ridiculously overpowered. The health also bugs out after getting ♥♥♥♥♥ slapped several times by the first enemy, just look at my second episode for that.

    The sequence while enetering the hotel is also pretty iffy, to say the least. Things happened out of sequence.

    And lastly, all the character models are the same, just different faces. Just to ask the dev personally, please try to make them a bit more diverse, for atmosphere and such.

    Oh, and there are pain sounds from the characters in the hometown sequence frequently, and it's a tad annoying. And the lunch "quest". Tell new players where to go at least.

    Thank you for your time, I look forward to what you will or will not choose to do with this game. I hope you will fix it.

    NOTE: This is not the first horror game i've played.

    This game is creepy as hell. I really like it.
    I don't know how many times i wasted all my bullets because of a jumpscare.

    I recommend people to play this, people who like scary games with jumpscares.

    It's actually a pretty cool game since it's made with the Source Engine, plus it has a story in it. But i won't spoiler it for you. Try the game out yourself!

    10/10. :)

    Very good game. Great atmosphere, great story, everything about this game is really good except one thing; The god damn AI. Holy ♥♥♥♥. Get caught by one in a single fight and there is a high probability that you are going to die. The save points are too few and far apart and every time you die, you go back to one. If they could fix the AI this would most likely be on of my favorite games. Do i reccomend it? I would. This game is very spooky and has a lot of potential. Go try it out for yourself!

    Do you enjoy ♥♥♥♥ty games and god awful plot sequences that make you want to shoot youself in the face twelve times? Then you're in luck! Because this piece of garbage is perfect for an individual such as yourself, but seriously, dont play this game. Honestly, it's impossible to explain in detail why this game is bad, so just take my advice and don't install this "horror" game. Although, i'm just random ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on the internet, so if you want to install this free game, then go ahead and do it. I DO NOT recommend it though.
