Those with interest can now put money down on a pre-order of Frogwares’ creepy and unsettling The Sinking City. To celebrate, the developer has released another lengthy gameplay trailer, which comes in the form of a mission walkthrough.
Called ‘A Delicate Matter,’ this mission — which can be undertaken a few hours into the game — utilizes its investigative techniques and mechanics. Thus, it shows off different types of gameplay that one can expect.
During this mission, Mr. Throgmorthon, head of one of the leading families in Oakmont, asks Charles to look into a delicate matter: a receiver of stolen art has disappeared just before closing the sale of a valuable item, and Throgmorthon wants it back at all costs. As the investigation unfolds, the player finds out that the story is far more complicated than it first seemed. Without being prompted by the game, the player must question more and more witnesses throughout the town, and use logic to get to the bottom of things.
The Sinking City can be pre-ordered and purchased in three different forms: the standard edition, day one physical edition and Necronomicon edition, the latter of which is a digital exclusive with bonuses.
