Video game development studio Frogwares has announced that the release date for its upcoming open world Lovecraftian mystery game The Sinking City has been delayed until this Summer. We first reported on the game back in April of last year, and at E3 2018 it was slated for release later this month, but the company has pushed the release back several months, citing a market saturated with new titles as the reason.
Fortunately, accompanying the bad news is some good: the latest installment in The Sinking City‘s developer diary video series, “Update 6: The Art of Visual Storytelling” was released. The over four-and-a-half minute video focuses on color, storyboarding, cinematography, lighting, and other visual techniques featuring segments with cinematic artists Andrew Kudriashov & Dmytro Teplinsky:
The Sinking City is now expected to be released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Thursday, June 27th.
A story-rich, free investigation game set in a twisted H.P Lovecraft inspired universe. Step into Oakmont, Massachusetts – a place suffering decay and rot from unprecedented supernatural floods that slowly envelope the city and the minds of its inhabitants.
This is the world in which your character, private investigator Charles W. Reed, finds himself in. While slowly going insane from your own demons, you will need to use your detective skills to reveal the truth behind the unfathomable powers gripping you, the city, and its deranged citizens.
