Following a tragic stroke of fate, Alfred embarks on a journey north in search of redemption. In this single-player road trip adventure, you'll travel to beautiful places, capture memories with your camera, meet interesting people, and even make some new friends.


Forever Ago is the debut title of Third Shift, a small, narrative-focused indie game studio founded by two best friends.


  • Experience a nuanced and heartfelt story about broken dreams, loss, and regret—but also courage, hope, and true friendship.
  • Explore stunningly beautiful environments, ranging from serene forest lakes to dusty barrens sweltering in the desert sun.
  • Examine and interact with objects to learn about your surroundings and the people living there.
  • Take pictures with your good ol' instant camera to document Alfred's journey and solve small environmental puzzles.
  • Discover the stories, beliefs and struggles of the various characters you meet along the way brought to life by renowned voice actors, including Dave Pettitt (Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Frostpunk), Daniel Amerman (League of Legends), and Cissy Jones (Firewatch, Life is Strange).
  • Featuring an original soundtrack by Clark Aboud (Slay the Spire, Kind Words).
  • You can pet the dog.
