Reviews

“The Pale City is an engrossing game that’s dripping in story for anyone who wants to explore it. This is not a traditional RPG, and to be honest, it’s not really a traditional anything, but that’s what makes it so intriguing”
Bago Games

“Roughly seven years in the making, and nearly all made by one man, The Pale City brings a world and narrative inspired by works such as Planescape: Torment, Xenogears, and more... If you’re a fan of charmingly odd worlds, worthwhile character studies, or distinct and rewardingly difficult combat systems, then it is without any doubt worth checking out.”

About This Game

A world where children aren’t born—they crawl out of tunnels in the ground. A lone city, beneath the gaze of a silent god, home to strange cults who eat the dead. The Pale City is the story of a mercenary hired to find the last, most powerful artifact of a sorcerer who disappeared lifetimes ago. But the search pits him against powerful people in hidden places, towards a secret buried somewhere in terrible darkness.

An Unconventional, Character-Driven Narrative:
Written and designed by novelist Kyle Muntz, The Pale City tells the story of one man’s struggle against a merciless world and the emptiness inside himself.

A Handcrafted, Semi-Open World:
Every room has a purpose; every battle has meaning; every step you take tells you more about yourself.

The Price of Survival:
Tense, unforgiving combat that rewards close observation and careful use of skills, where defense is often more important than offense.

Multiple Difficulty Levels:
Brave normal mode to experience the brutal reality of life in a harsh world, or story mode if you'd rather focus on the game's storytelling, exploration, and lore.

A Solitary Journey:
In a city without heroes, can you bear to see the consequences of your actions?

Mature Content Description

The Pale City contains strong language and sexually explicit references, in addition to unflinching depictions of violence, cruelty, and the grotesque.
