Something fishy is going on in the port of Oakmont. Octopus entrails are draped around the place, trout-faced fishermen hang out in the bar, and underwater visions plague your every move. You play a private detective on the hunt for a missing man, while experiencing the kind of hallucinations last seen at Woodstock in 1969.
Talk to locals, gather clues and evidence, and engage in the odd gunfight with a creature from the deep. Combat is more frustrating than a plate of rotten shellfish, mind you.
Hot on the heels of 2018’s Call Of Cthulhu, The Sinking City is a fresh attempt to adapt the work of HP Lovecraft. While it captures the writer’s disconcerting explorations of ocean gods and insanity, the stilted dialogue and clunky controls are a wash out.
