Aztech Forgotten Gods, a video game from Lienzo Gaming Studio inspired by Mexican mythology, is being discussed for a live-action film adaptation.
Aztech Forgotten Gods, a video game inspired by ancient Mexican mythology and created by Lienzo Gaming Studio, will be adapted into a live-action feature film. The fledgling game hasn’t even been released to the public yet but has a rollout planned for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC later this year.
With Aztech, it’s fun to envision what world building can be achieved through the many multi-dimensional characters, the mythology and vast cultural storylines.
The rich combination of ancient mythology, history, and fantasy embedded in the game is a solid foundation for world-building that holds a lot of potential for creating a complex universe. Impossible Dream’s producers were smart to snatch up Aztech at its early stages, as they may have a successful future franchise on their hands. The game also takes a revisionist approach to the history of European presence in Aztec society that both serves as a reminder of the brutality while making way for better stories to be told.
Here’s Lienzo’s description of the story behind their upcoming game:
Aztech Forgotten Gods is the cyber-stone action-adventure following Achtli, a young woman who battles the colossal Forgotten Gods. To uncover the truth behind her far-future Mesoamerican metropolis, she’ll have to turn the Gods’ power against them, as she soars through the city with power and grace using an ancient artifact, remnant of a time long forgotten.
