The Nameless City is the eighth and Secret Level of The Elder World. It is designed to look like a small town, consisting of outdoor areas, several larger rooms indoors, numerous dark and narrow corridors, and several underground areas. The level's highlights include a courtyard with an Elevator in its center, an underground temple-like structure with a small altar in its center, and a deep Water-filled pit.

The player must search for the Silver Key in order to proceed, and can collect the Gold Key to find a Secret. The level is named in reference to a story with the same name, The Nameless City, one of the earliest Cthulhu Mythos stories written by H.P. Lovecraft.
