“A Place for the Unwilling” is a narrative experience set in the last days of a dying city. Explore these twisted streets as you meet their inhabitants and get closer to them. Time never stops and  the end keeps getting closer.




"A Place for the Unwilling" is a narrative adventure game where the city is the actual protagonist. No puzzles or "game over" screens, just you, the city and the dozens of stories which are taking place in there. Days pass and the fate of the city is yet to be decided.

  • A living city to explore which evolves with each passing day.
  • A wide cast of citizens with handcrafted backgrounds, routines and stories.
  • Dynamic deep narrative that will make every walkthrough unique.
  • Be a trader in a thriving market and influence the city with every transaction.

The game is being developed by "AlPixel Games", the studio who made "Missing Translation", a small puzzle game which won 4 awards and had 10 nominations.

We all live in Madrid, where we spend most of our time working on our projects. We're deeply in love with game jams and release plenty of smaller free games.

Right now there are 5 people, working on the game:

Rubén, who draws all the art
Celer, who is in charge of music and sound design
Martín, who makes sure the game doesn't break (at least not too often)
Ángel, who supervises narrative
Luis, who does design, code and random stuff

It looks great, I love the art because it has a lot of personality, it's not the same old thing.

Looking cool! I love the art style!


Speaking of that, I'm not 100% in love with the logo. I like the shape, I just don't like the "treatment", the materials. Too shiny, too clean.
But it wouldn't be me if I didn't make a critique, so take it as a grain of salt!

Hey there! :D
It's probably too early to talk about dates, specially with games haha. Development started around mid-September and this might be a 18-month long project. Then again, this is very likely to change.

Thanks! Most of our references come from comics, books and TV shows. We try to stay away from games when it comes to getting new ideas.

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, we had lots of doubts about the logo, but we had spent too much time with this early version and we had to move on. It'll will change over development :D

Thanks! We were kind of obsessed with the idea of the city having a soul and a personality of its own haha.

Love the concept of a game about a town. When I was a kid I used to play Sim City making up stories about the city in my head, thinking about characters and naming each part of town according to some Historical fact that happened there.

Don't think that's what you're aiming for but anyway, game is looking awesome!

It won't play like a Sim City game, you won't be able to build streets or "create people". But you'll get to explore each part of the town and really get to know the characters Smiley

The game looks wonderful and being able to look into the corners of a living city, at the multitudes of it's inhabitants and their lives, sounds like a beautiful way to play.

Will the city in the game have the sort of first person narration, that is present at the start of the thread?

Looking forward to more updates. Good Luck!

ps. while the art for the city and the characters looks really great, the yellow/golden frames around the images seem a little discordant.

Hey Oleomingus! The game will use some of that first person narrative, but just in a few parts.

You'll control a character and be able to move around, interact with everyone and talk to them; so, most of the narrative is told from dialogues with those characters.

(And thanks for the art feedback :D)

I registered only to this site to be able to post here. I loove the concept of the game. You had me at Majoras Mask sidequest  Smiley They are my favorite part of the game and a game only centered around little stories like this would be great. I am especially looking forward to see and discover connections between the people in the city.
But I think, you should have puzzles. Make the city the puzzle.
