This game will hit all the marks for fans of horror and H. P. Lovecraft. In the game, you play Charles Reed, an ex-navy man and current hardboiled detective, who just arrived in the city of Oakmont. The town flooded a decade ago and ever since strange events have been happening in the lives of the people who live in the town. Life in Oakmont is even stranger as you discover that creatures lurk in almost every home.
Sinking City (2019, rated M for mature) is story-driven with half of your time spent in action and the other half spent hunting down clues and doing research through public records at places like the old newspaper offices and the library. The other dynamic of the game that lends well to the Lovecraft theme is that of the sanity meter. As your character looks upon the horrors that lurk in the shadows, he must be careful not to go insane himself.
