FM Studio is a small team dedicated to game development. We've created Forgotten Hill adventure games, so probably there's something wrong with us...


FM Studio is a little indie team made by 2 persons, Francesco - the main developer, artist and game designer - and his wife Manuela - who is in charge of writing, API integrations, editing and all financial hassle.

About Forgotten Hill series

"Forgotten Hill" series started at the end of year 2015 with the first chapter, "Forgotten Hill: Fall" initially available only on the web. A mobile version has been released a few months later and in June 2016 "Forgotten Hill: Puppeteer" came simultaneously on the web and mobile (App Store and Google Play). This game has been widely very well received and hit 100k installs on Google Play in the first few months. After the third chapter - "Surgery" - we took a break from the main story and released a series of mini games (only on the web) called "Mementoes" to glaze inside Forgotten Hill past. Those stories have been joined together in one single game - Forgotten Hill Mementoes - together with a longer and previously unpublished new chapter, called "Mischief Night", available for mobile and desktop. After the release of the first one of the Forgotten Hill Tales - called Little Cabin in the Woods - it was time to put the hands on the main story again. It's time to play again the part of Mr. Larson in his search for the truth. And so it comes Forgotten Hill Disillusion, where you will find yourself trapped inside Forgotten Hill Museum. You will need to solve more than 60 puzzles, explore almost 70 rooms of the 4 sections of the Museum. Will you survive?

Selected Articles

  • "While having a good sprinkling of jump scares, Forgotten Hill: Fall has the perfect thing any horror game needs; dread. [...] Even if you're not too familiar with these types of games Forgotten Hill: Fall is sure to be a pleasure for those wanting a good fright or two."
    - Lori.h, Jayisgames
  • "There is a good deal more blood. It's what I'd call creepy rather than outright scary, no jump scares or anything like that. They did a good job of the atmosphere. There are plenty of puzzles to keep you busy while you're enjoying the apparently carnival inspired graphics and music. There's a rather eerie contrast between the bouncy tune and the action of the game."
    - Dixie, Jayisgames
  • "The compelling hints of lore and underlying story scattered throughout the scenes serve to put the captive in captivated, keeping you alert and focused, not letting you put it down just like a good book."
    - Arceus, Jayisgames
