The Sinking City screenshot of an ominous boat ride

The Sinking City is a newly released and Lovecraft inspired adventure-investigation hybrid. As you might imagine from that brief description alone, The Sinking City is all about trying to figure out what sort of unearthly horrors have descended upon the world, all the while doing your very best to avoid going completely and utterly insane.

You can get a pretty good idea of the sort of atmosphere The Sinking City is going for through the recently posted cinematic trailer. Have a gander, it's certainly an interesting one, to say the least:

As is tradition with most Lovecraftian games, The Sinking City has ended up being a bit of a mixed bag. While the visuals are somewhat unpolished and the combat almost completely uninspired, the actual storytelling and atmosphere present throughout the adventure are pretty spot-on. So if you don't mind overlooking some flaws in favor of an immersive experience, The Sinking City might just be worth a closer look.

Speaking of which, you can learn more about The Sinking City, as well as potentially grab yourself a copy, over at the official website. Have fun, and I'll leave you with the launch trailer:
