The Sinking City as a game is equal parts noir mystery and alt-historical horror story. While playing through Frogwares Studio’s E3 demo, we got to solve a creepy missing person’s case, and see the game’s dark interpretation of an East Coast city. A little under a year still remains until the game’s release, but the content we’re seeing right now is pretty compelling.
“Lovecraft” is right in The Sinking City’s tagline, and they’re not kidding. Briefly running around the city showed off otherworldly monsters and hybrid monster-people, and still other people who have been “augmented.” True to its title, the city you play in is partially submerged in sea water, and filled with strange sea creatures in the ‘channels’ that were once streets.
