Having spent 15 years in game development, the folks at Frogwares decided it was time to approach things differently.

The upcoming horror mystery The Sinking City represents the studio’s first foray into open-world investigation. Lovecraft’s universe and the Cthulhu Mythos was felt to be ideal for this new direction.

The game will be bigger than anything the studio has released thus far. It’s been in development for awhile now, but Frogwares has only recently started sharing info about it.

The Sinking City takes place in the 1920s. You’ll become a private detective who investigates supernatural goings-on in a flooded New England city where the inhabitants are going mad. (Did I just see some tentacles?)

Frogwares: “…we’ll be doing our very best to create a complex, living, breathing Lovecraftian urban environment unlike anything else and possible only in the interactive medium of videogames.”

The Sinking City will be released on PC at a date TBD. Stay tuned for further info.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
