About This Game

The Nazis are on the trail of six ancient magical artifacts powerful enough to crush all opposition and conquer the world. But they didn’t take one thing into account: you.

Relics of the Lost Age is a swashbuckling 350,000 word interactive adventure novel written by James Shaw, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

It started out as a routine dig in Palestine. But soon you find yourself racing across the desert on a quest to track down a fabled ancient relic before the Nazis can get their hands on it. And that’s just the beginning. The Third Reich are mobilizing right across the globe, on the hunt for mysterious ancient Relics of Power, objects which could put unimaginable supernatural forces into the hands of the armies of darkness. And the only thing standing in their way is you.
Step into the weathered boots of a swashbuckling 1930s archaeologist and strap in for a wild ride around the globe, finding adventure, romance, and mystery at every turn. Do you have what it takes to locate the Relics, vanquish your foes and save the world from a thousand years of darkness?

  • Uncover a sinister secret lost for millennia.
  • Give priceless historical treasures to their true owners, sell them to the highest bidder, or decide that they belong in a museum.

Archaeology Just Got A Whole Lot More Exciting.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

This game is set in the 1930s; it attempts to address some issues of that time, including sexism and racism, and highlights the harm, toxicity, and lies of far right ideology, segregation, and other such issues. Throughout, Nazis espousing racist ideology are countered and condemned by the protagonists. There are also some sensitive scenes describing violence against minority characters that was unfortunately typical of that time period.
