In a city shattered by a catastrophic nuclear accident, established development house Untold Games proudly presents the studio’s upcoming original title, City 20.

City 20 invites players to immerse themselves in a meticulously crafted world drawing inspiration from European sci-fi classics such as Stalker, The Road or La Jetee. As the remnants of civilization eke out an existence, players must navigate a landscape transformed by man-made disaster, and influenced by the deep interconnectedness of a realistic social environment. 

Small acts create big ripples in the world of City 20, with the game’s powerful systems creating an emergent narrative unique to each playthrough. 

"After five years of crafting, we’re excited to introduce our game, City 20 – a deep systems-driven simulation of post-apocalyptic city life. This journey has been a labour of love,  and we can’t wait to share it with the world. This isn’t just a game; it's the result of years of dedication and passion. With City 20, we’ve made the game we want to play, and we’re thrilled to share more of our latest title with the world.”

Key Features:

  • Emergent Storytelling: Every citizen of City 20 has their own motivations and relationships. Treat people badly, and your reputation will suffer. Work on maintaining good relations with your neighbours, cheat and steal your way to success - no two stories are the same.

  • Dystopic Life Sim: Carefully manage your resources to stay alive in the harsh world of the post-meltdown city. Every decision you make is vital, so take care.

  • Unique Aesthetic: Pulling inspiration from the grounded world of speculative fiction, City 20 looks and sounds like nothing else in the genre.

  • Reactive Sandbox: This environment reacts to you in a very deep, connected way. Hunt too many rabbits? Predators might start coming closer to town in search of food. Interfere with the

water supply? People will start to become desperate. Think through your actions carefully - every small action could have a big reaction in the dangerous world of City 20.

City 20 promises to deliver a gaming experience that combines the best elements of European science fiction, creating a truly captivating world for players to explore. In navigating the complex web of post-apocalyptic society, no two players will have the same journey.

City 20 is coming to PC Early Access in 2024. Untold Games invites players to stay tuned via the social media links below for further updates and announcements as the game's development progresses.
