Reviews

“A delightfully sinister tale of mystery and destruction with a staggering number of branching paths that guarantee no playthrough will be the same.”
Game Skinny

“The setting in A Place for the Unwilling immediately establishes an intriguing blend of charm and dread.”
Game Informer

“A Place for the Unwilling is as beautiful as a chocolate box, a Victorian-era stage covered in mist and night, with a knot of buildings and streets you must navigate to discover the city’s secrets.”

About This Game



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.
