A game we have been keeping our eyes on is The Sinking City, the latest game from Frogwares who are best known for their superb Sherlock Holmes games. This time the Ukranian developer is moving away from the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and focussing on H.P. Lovecraft. Here’s the official description of the game as well as the trailer –
“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of the infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
— H.P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories”
The Sinking City is a game of investigation and mystery taking place in a fictional open world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft.
The player steps into the shoes of a 1920s private investigator who finds himself in the city of Oakmont Massachusetts, New England. A city suffering from unprecedented floods of clearly supernatural origins. A city trembling on the brink of madness.
Can you survive this beleaguered town and untangle the mysteries responsible for its tragic situation or will you be driven beyond madness yourself?
The Sinking City will launch on 21st March 2019
