About this game

The Nazis are on the trail of six ancient magical artifacts powerful enough to crush all opposition and conquer the world. But they didn’t take one thing into account: you.

Relics of the Lost Age is a swashbuckling 350,000 word interactive adventure novel written by James Shaw, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

It started out as a routine dig in Palestine. But soon you find yourself racing across the desert on a quest to track down a fabled ancient relic before the Nazis can get their hands on it. And that’s just the beginning. The Third Reich are mobilizing right across the globe, on the hunt for mysterious ancient Relics of Power, objects which could put unimaginable supernatural forces into the hands of the armies of darkness. And the only thing standing in their way is you.

Step into the weathered boots of a swashbuckling 1930s archaeologist and strap in for a wild ride around the globe, finding adventure, romance, and mystery at every turn. Do you have what it takes to locate the Relics, vanquish your foes and save the world from a thousand years of darkness?

• Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, poly, or asexual.
• Find romance with a fearless explorer, an exiled prince, a passionate archaeologist, or a tormented spy.
• Take on a rogue’s gallery of memorable and despicable villains, including the Nazis, the mafia, Triads, Klansmen, renegade soldiers, and ruthless treasure-hunters.
• Travel widely in a lovingly recreated 1930s world, exploring the deserts of Palestine, the high passes of Tibet, the noxious politics of Louisiana, the jungles of Congo, London’s cut-throat art-crime scene, and Hong Kong’s deadly Triad underworld.
• Experience epic gunfights, visceral brawls, and wild stunts in vintage vehicles.
• Uncover a sinister secret lost for millennia.
• Give priceless historical treasures to their true owners, sell them to the highest bidder, or decide that they belong in a museum.

Archaeology just got a whole lot more exciting.

Awesome game. Really unique premise and feel. The history aspect is amazing and really genuinely interesting, and the opportunities to build a unique character background and statwise seem endless! The side characters are written GREAT, everyone seems real and lovable (or hateable, for the villains). The plot is very edge of your seat and classic adventure story, with tons of replayability. Can't wait for the sequel.

This was surprisingly good. The story basically follows this formula: new location, relic exposition, nazis appear!, (hopefully) survive the encounter, and repeat. Some arcs were kind of boring because I wasn't much of a fan of a specific character, or the puzzles were annoying to solve. I wished there was a way to skip the puzzles and continue the story. I do, however, look forward to continuing the adventure in the next installments, because the main characters make the story worth it.

Very enjoyable with a non-linear style of storytelling. I'd prefer more elaboration on what some of the choices entailed before the decision is made and more options to change my decisions made for social and non-urgent matters. Being unable to change my characters last name distracted me somewhat from the immersion I was going for, especially considering it had no real importance to the story. Overall, it's a very solid story with much to work for. Worth the price and highly recommended.
