The act of founding cities, a most characteristic human practice, responds to specific archetypes which has been studies by recognized authors. Their works consider the problem of the contemporary city as a metropolis, a construct well different from its foundational historic core. However, nowadays production of fiction narratives, based on foundational urban contexts, offers a field of research that connects ancient categories with design of interactive fictional spaces. The analysis of these categories in the work Metro 2033 by Dmitri Glujvski, a series of novels and video games published between 2002 and 2016, shows the use of foundational archetypes for the structuring of dystopic narrations with strong political messages.
