Six months ago, we brought you news of a HP Lovecraftian dark, mystery game called The Sinking City. Well Bigben Games and Frogwares are proud and almost visibly excited to bring you a whole new video that shows off the investigation system in this highly anticipated game.
The video takes you straight into the game where we see the protagonist, Detective Charles Reed scouring the streets of the dark and foreboding Oakmont, where he investigates the cause of the supernatural occurrences and madness that’s infiltrated and devasted the town.
Playing as Charles, you are completely on your own, with only your investigative skills and trusty notebook to aid you. You’ll need to fully explore the town, investigate crime scenes and gather info. While some problems can be easily overcome others rely on Charles unique skills, such as retrocognition, which allows him to physically replay past scenes.
One of the more mysterious aspects of The Sinking City is that the course of action you take through the game, and the conclusions you draw in regards to guilty parties will never be confirmed. You will have to trust your gut and hope that you’ve chosen the right path.
Taking place in the ‘20s, The Sinking City is an action and investigation game inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of horror. The player embodies Charles, a private detective, who comes to Oakmont, Massachusetts in order to investigate the cause of an unprecedented supernatural flood. Within this oppressive, murky atmosphere, the player must discover the origin of whatever has taken control of the city and the minds of its inhabitants.
Soon the long wait till all be over, when The Sinking City is released across PS4, PC and xBox One. If you want more information head over to the official site: https://www.thesinkingcity.com
