Fair cop: I'm friends with the author. I am not financially involved at all.
The Forgotten brings out the best in players. The best players will be at their finest. Due to the connections between players, everyone is involved together and everyone cares. The connections are done Fiasco style, with relationships to your right and left. This creates an intense network.
I've had the pleasure of playing this game twice. The first time with Drew, the second time I facilitated it. Its that easy to pickup. It has tremendous replay value.
The Forgotten uses music to add to the ambiance, and as the game master. No person needs to facilitate, and everyone can play. The music can be set to as long as you want, such that the game can take 2, 3 or 5 hours depending on preference. By virtue of being a larp, The Forgotten forges strong emotions.
This is a best of breed work, using a lot of current work in the larp space to make a very accessible and fantastic game.
