Developer Frogwares has released a new trailer for The Sinking City, its upcoming Lovecraftian horror game.
The trailer introduces us not only to the game’s hero, but to his state of mind. Things, as in any Lovecraftian game, are not as they seem:
The official description reads:
“Taking place in the 1920s, The Sinking City is a game of adventure and investigation set in an open world inspired by the works of the famous American horror author H.P. Lovecraft.
You will step into the shoes of a private investigator who arrives in the city of Oakmont Massachusetts – a city suffering from unprecedented floods of supernatural origins. You must uncover the source of whatever has taken possession of the city – and the minds of its inhabitants.”
The Sinking City is the second of two Lovecraftian games scheduled for release, with the official Call of Cthulhu releasing later this year. What’s interesting about The Sinking City is that it’s an open world game – an unusual proposition for a mystery horror, but a welcome one indeed.
The Sinking City will launch on March 21, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
