The End of The World: The Empty City

“The Empty City” by Lolon.

“[A] story focused adventure game where you explore sunken buildings, over[r]un underpasses, flooded streets and a hill overlooking a city with a story to tell.”


This game has captivated me for a variety of reasons. Not only that I’m a big lover of the old PlayStation graphics (and yes, even the sometimes super clonky camera settings), but also the whole scenario just feels right.

At the beginning, we accompany a silent figure dressed in a cloak and watch her peck a flower. Then we’ll go with her through the passages of a completely deserted city and see some unique places. A huge pile of flower petals, distant rays of light, empty streets and almost crumbling buildings.

With these places come some questions: Why is this city empty? What are the posters about? What’s the green fog? Well… It’s a mysterious world that holds its secrets and just reveals them in a subtle way. Join the trip, and maybe you will find what you are looking for. >>PLAY
