The philosophically-founded story of The Old City, from indie developer PostMod Softworks, is the focus of the entire game. Above all, it’s a story of choice.

The game, which takes place in a decaying city, will be a journey in epistemology. The overall objective is to present a clear and coherent philosophical message in a deep and meaningful world of allegory in which you will be forced to make personal choices in a nonlinear but directed story.

There are no weapons, no items, and no skill-trees. You and the world are all that exist.

Gameplay is minimalistic and primarily serves as a vehicle for immersion. You progress through the game by simply exploring the environment. The story is told via the musings of your character and the environment itself.

The Old City is to be released on Windows at a date to be determined.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
