A Place for the Unwilling, Macabre Doomsday Mystery on Steam

Developer ALPixel Games today released their macabre narrative mystery A Place for the Unwilling for PC and Mac via Steam.

A Place for the Unwilling is 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 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.
