Become a Detective in THE SINKING CITY’s Lovecraftian World

Frogwares has released a new video for their upcoming horror investigative adventure The Sinking City, which will be hitting PC and consoles later this year. The video, which you can watch above, dives into the mechanics of the game, specifically when it comes to using the main character’s sleuthing abilities so as to solve mysteries and crimes. Fans of Frogwares’ Sherlock games will see something that will almost certainly make them very happy!

Tortured by his past and otherworldly visions, Charles W. Reed, a private investigator finds himself in Oakmont, Massachusetts, seeking salvation from the creeping insanity that afflicts him. Once a trade harbor, known for its lucrative smuggling business, Oakmont now lives in secluded isolation from the rest of the world, under a flood of supernatural origins. In this place of decay and superstition; players will have to deal with the dregs of mankind, follow clues they wish they had never found, and unveil a cosmic horror threatening the world itself.

We’ve been covering The Sinking City for a while now and it’s still up there as one of our most anticipated games of the year. If you want to see something really creepy and cool, check out these photos of sculptures used by the dev team for inspiration that we premiered last year.
