Here is a four-minute look at the investigation system of The Sinking City, the upcoming Lovecraftian game from Frogwares, the studio behind the Sherlock Holmes games. The players control Charles Reed in the streets of Oakmont in the '20s and are tasked with investigating the reasons behind the madness and supernatural elements present in the town. No hints or assistance can help the players, they have to rely on exploration and their own observation to discover clues. The Retrocognition ability allows to replay past scenes.

Finished all Frogware Sherlock Holmes games. The cases vary and are hit and miss in quality but it's such a niche genre I'll take what I can get.
Having said that it's hard to justify a purchase as it feels like it'll be on Plus or Game Pass not long after launch.

While I've enjoyed the Sherlock games, I feel like they've gotten worse as they go. The last one in particular wasn't good. I felt like the early games were more solid from the detective/puzzle perspective, let down by a lack of technical polish. Whereas now the technical aspects are better but the gameplay within isn't as good.

I'll keep an eye on this. It Is doubtfull i'll be buying it day one though.

Didn't play the Sherlock Holmes games, but this one looks very intriguing.
I'm so happy that in this generation we've somehow moved away from "guns" as the primary interaction device of almost every game. Every developer seems so much more inspired nowadays, it's wonderful.

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (2 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (3 Days ago)
