Frogwares has released a new gameplay trailer for The Sinking City. According to the press release, this trailer video highlights the inner-workings of the game’s unique investigation system and how it forces players to truly think, deduct and make their own (possibly the wrong) conclusions rather than just follow convenient waypoint markers.
Players will be able to spot obscure details on the evidence with the help of their “Mind’s Eye”, reimagine the events that took place on a crime scene with “Retrocognition” and follow “The Omens” to reveal what’s unseen to an ordinary detective. Players can also utilize “Archives” within the City Hall, Police Station, Library and other facilities to piece together the troubled history of Oakmont, and cross-reference all known facts within their “Mind Palace” to come to their conclusion.
The Sinking City is story-rich, free investigation game set in a twisted H.P Lovecraft inspired universe. Step into Oakmont, Massachusetts – a place suffering decay and rot from unprecedented supernatural floods that slowly envelope the city and the minds of its inhabitants.
The game is said to be aiming for a 2019 release date (instead of a March 2019 release date) so I guess it’s safe to say that the game has been indeed delayed!
