There has been a who lot of Cthulhu and Lovecraft talk recently and we are nowhere near being done with it as we still have The Sinking City to look forward to on March 21st of next year. I am also certain that this will not be the last we hear or see of the mythologies here as we push even further on. That also begs the question for some, why is Lovecraft so important? I mean, outside of bringing us amazing games and literature like The Sinking City. It is also a question that Frogwares is here to answer for those not completely up on their history and knowledge of the topic.
While I do wish I could say we have more gameplay to look at for The Sinking City, we do not. What we do have here, though, is a nice little informative bit that shows how this mythology has informed many others to tell stories in the genre as well as how it all inspired more for this game. It is not a direct correlation, but it is at least something to keep our gears moving forward with anticipation for The Sinking City. At least this all shows that the team knows the subject matter extremely well and will be able to give us another great addition to the mythology and lore. Even if it never becomes more than just a cool video game.
