The player embodies Charles Reed, a private detective, who comes to Oakmont, Massachusetts in order to investigate the cause of an unprecedented supernatural flood. Within this oppressive, murky atmosphere, the player must discover the origin of whatever has taken control of the city and the minds of its inhabitants.
Throughout the adventure, the player must also manage his mental health or risk succumbing to his visions. Free to form his own opinions, Charles is faced with heart-breaking choices and heavy consequences for this city, one which is already only a shadow of itself.
