Developer Frogwares and publisher Bigben Games have released a brand-new teaser trailer of the former's Lovecraftian horror game, The Sinking City.
The new trailer showcases the game's protagonist, an investigator who finds himself touring a Massachusetts city suffering massive floods of supernatural origins. Traveling monster infested waters in a dingy, one thing is made clear in the trailer, the player is not in a position of power.
The trailer also demonstrates the game's lovecraftian horror vibes, and sets the stage for what looks like will be a weird, eerie, and terrifying tale. And given that it inspired by H.P Lovecraft's work, all of this isn't very surprising.
The Sinking City is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It currently is without a release date, however, the end of the trailer teases that more of the game will be revealed at E3 next month. Perhaps we will get a release date or release window then as well.
For those that don't know: Frogwares' previous releases include Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, Magrunner: Dark Pulse, and many other less notable titles. None of its games have managed to set the world on fire, and none have performed very well critically. Perhaps The Sinking City will finally be the game to put the studio, which has been creating games since 2000, on the map.
