Inspired by the works of horror author H.P. Lovecraft, The Sinking City is described as a "story-rich, free investigation horror game". We've known about its upcoming release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One for a while, but seeing this Switch reveal is a very nice surprise indeed.

The game will be self-published on Switch by developer Frogwares, with the launch coming "later this year". Make sure to check out the creepy trailer above if you haven't already, and then read on to learn more about what you can expect to find in the game.

Free Investigation - A unique approach to the detective gameplay were your skills and cunning are your main tools, and not hand-holding UI and pop up clues. Customizable difficulty and grey moral choices mean your conscious is the only guiding light in how you solve cases.

Enthralling Story of Insanity in a World of Desolation and Rot - Uncover the mystery of a supernatural flood that envelops the city of Oakmont. Citizens slowly losing their sanity and willingly trapping themselves in this place. Nightmarish creatures and cults becoming the norm. And you, a private detective with his own mental demons, are all that can expose the cosmic powers that pull at these puppet strings.

Deeply Rooted in Lovecraft and Cthulhu Mythos - The Sinking City is heavily inspired and built around the stories of the master horror writer himself, H.P Lovecraft. Become a part of an iconic universe, encounter familiar characters and relive beloved horror stories while also exploring new takes and twists on the cosmic horror genre.
