Bigben and Frogwares studio have released a brand new gameplay video of their upcoming horror investigation game The Sinking City which is available now for pre-order. The new video showcases a mission, A Delicate Matter, from the full game which is in the early hours of the game and it shows the in-game investigation mechanics in action.
The mission is given to Charles by Mr. Throgmorthon who is the head of one of the leading families in Oakmont. He tasks Charles with handling a delicate matter which requires finding a receiver of stolen art who has disappeared just before closing the sale of a valuable item. Naturally, Mr. Throgmorthon wants it back at all costs.
Now it is up to the players to investigate and unfold the mysteries behind the task which is actually far more complicated than it first seemed. The game does not guide the player in any way so they are on their own when it comes to investigations and solving mysteries. The player will have the option to question as many people in the game as they want and then use their own logic to join the pieces of the puzzle and solve the mystery.
Check out the new gameplay video:
