First up about The Sinking City. The Sinking City is an open world, open investigation game set in a Lovecraft universe. The player steps into the shoes of a private investigator who finds himself trapped in the city of Oakmont Massachusetts – a city suffering from unprecedented floods of supernatural origins. The player must uncover the source of whatever has taken possession of the city, and the minds of its inhabitants.
A teaser trailer was recently released which you can see below.
Frogwares, together with publisher Bigben Interactive wanted to shows the difficulty and planning that goes into creating an event demo. Quoting Sergey Oganesyan, Frogwares Community Manager “We wanted to show our community, and the gaming community in general, a perspective which hasn’t really been shown to the public that much – the process of preparing an event demo of a game that’s still in production”.
The ‘making an event demo’ was shown back in march and the demo was first shown at GDC San Francisco and EGX Rezzed London.
With no official release date for The Sinking City yet we are hoping to hear and see a lot more at E3.
