“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” - H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

The Sinking City is an action/investigation game set in an open world inspired by the universe of H.P. Lovecraft. In this new type of adventure, you take on the role of Charles W. Reed, an investigator in the 1920s United States. No sooner have you arrived in Oakmont, Massachusetts, than you are led to investigate a mysterious flood inundating the city, in the hopes of shedding light on the darkness that has seized the place and corrupted the minds of the inhabitants - and yours...


Happy Gaming!

It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

I think a lot of us will want to skip it -- at least for now.

It has very high system requirements (compared to most adventure games)
The Minimum requirement lists a video card with 4 GB of video memory.

Websites that list system requirements for games disagree on whether 6 GB or 8 GB is the Minimum amount of system memory required and whether Windows 7 or Windows 10 is the Minimum OS required.

*** Systemrequirementslab says 8 GB system memory and Windows 10 ***
*** Game-debate says 8GB system memory and Windows 10 ***
*** Gamesystemrequirements says 6GB system memory and Windows 7 ***
*** PCgamingwiki says 6GB system memory and Windows 7 ***

Also it relies on combat -- clumsy combat according to the Adventuregamers review -- and not all of us are up for that.

The computer version is currently only available at the EPIC store, using the rightfully maligned EPIC launcher. If you want to buy it from Steam or GOG you have to wait a year, which may not be a bad idea because it gives Frogwares time to fix the bugs. Searching for

Sinking City bugs
on YouTube will find various examples of visual and gameplay bugs.
