The Sinking City Horror Game Landing in 2017

Just when I thought my HP Lovecraftian Horror fix would never be satisfied, two Cthulhu inspired games have been announced for next year. Frogwares, the creators of the Sherlock Holmes games, announced that they will make a game based on the Call of Cthulhu mythos.


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

The Sinking City is a game of investigation genre taking place in a fictional open world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft.
The player incarnates a private investigator in 1920s, who finds himself in a city of New England, Oakmont Massachusetts. It’s currently suffering from extensive waterflood, and its cause is clearly supernatural. The city trembles on the brink of madness.
Can you investigate this beleaguered town and untangle the tragic extent of its failings or will you be driven beyond madness yourself?

The game is apparently an open world investigation title, which will play out in a town called Oakmont. The game is expected in 2017, however this may change as they haven’t officially made the date of release known.
Call of Cthulhu was earlier announced by Focus Home, which will launch on Xbox One and other platforms. The game is based on a popular Pen and Paper tabletop game.
