Role-playing games for newcomer and veteran RPG fans

OnceLost Games is an independent game development studio dedicated to reinvigorating the role-playing game genre with much-needed new ideas. Founded by veterans with over two generations of gaming expertise, we aim to meet the gap between the deep, complex design pillars of games from the 90's, with the production values, improved controls and quality of life features found in games today.

We're hard at work on our debut role-playing game title The Wayward Realms, which will be a massive open-world fantasy adventure, and will boast revolutionary technology and game design by some of the most celebrated veterans of computer gaming, known for their work on multiple Game of the Year-winning titles.
