If you felt that the last look we had at The Sinking City was a little on the light side of things, you were right and we feel you. It was short and sweet and did not truly give us all much more to look at for the game and what Frogwares has been putting into the game to give us that full Cthulhu feeling of things. I am not saying it has not been there before, but there has not been a solid look at it all for the public as of yet and I know many want more for The Sinking City. If you have not caught on by this point, that is until now as we have a nice chunk of gameplay to look at for the game that shows off more of that open world gameplay we can expect on March 21st of 2019.
A word to the wise on this, this new footage for The Sinking City comes from some B-Roll that was originally meant to have other overlays and such. I tell you this so you do not think you are losing your sanity with the weird cuts and jumps in the gameplay. They are there for good reasons but the other weirdness is all in the game and leaves a whole lot of questions unanswered. Like the part where the characters have some their lips sewn shut but are still talking or look like they are molding away. I understand how that could be in the world in general, but I have a feeling it links into the loss of sanity we will have to face in The Sinking City when we play it. I could be wrong though.
Have a look for yourself now and see what you may have missed out on for The Sinking City out of E3 this year. I know I originally missed it, hence why I am bringing it here now, so I can only expect many others did too.
The Sinking City — Open World Gameplay Demo
Eldritch horrors awakening on March 21,2019…
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.
Does this change your thoughts on The Sinking City and the gameplay here or keep it the same? Do you think that the extra weirdness will be linked to the story in a true way or just part of how we will start to see the world as the insanity kicks in? Do you think we will keep seeing those "tears in reality" when we fail or do something wrong in the game or will they just be there for specific sections? Let us have all of those thoughts down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. For more on The Sinking City, though, just keep checking back in here to see it all.
