The Unwritten Critias & the Lost Island is a first-person adventure game set in a realistic open world environment. The players begin the game on a mysterious island in the Atlantic Ocean. They have the choice to either begin a quest, or if they delight in exploration they can choose to roam this intriguing island and discover its many mysteries and pursue the quests later. Once one quest is completed, other quests appear, and little by little the true nature and history of this island becomes known.


THE IDEA

The name of the game is inspired by the famous Platonic dialogue Critias. In this dialogue Plato discusses the existence of a lost island in the Atlantic, referred to as Atlantis, taken from the words: “island of Atlas”. Since the last centuries of the pre-Christian era until nowadays, the existence of this hypothetical lost island has been the epicenter of a tireless debate. Even though the search for Atlantis is the main questline in The Unwritten Critias & the Lost Island, the gamer will have the opportunity to get familiarized with another controversial hypothesis - the so called “Orion correlation theory”.

THE GAME

The player will follow the story of Alexander Jacob Wills, a blasé scholar who left the academia to work in the IT industry. Everything gets changed when Alex receives an unexpected proposal: to continue the research project of his grandfather, the historian Paolo Paltini, who worked as a librarian in a mysterious manor owned by Lord Gilbert Newman.

The player can choose to solve the quests and deepen the storyline, or to explore the unnamed Atlantic island where the action takes place. Just in the former case some environments - otherwise inaccessible - will become available.
