Publisher Bigben Interactive and developer Frogwares have released a new, 12-minute commented gameplay demo of The Sinking City.
Here is an overview of the video, via Bigben Interactive:
The 12-minute narrated gameplay demo dives head first into the gracefully rotting world of Oakmont, looking at a few of the investigative tools at your disposal, and a bitter taste of the warped, nefarious stories to come. In this investigation, we’re trying to help a rather hesitant witness. Someone, or something, has promised to keep this poor souls mouth sewn shut, figuratively and literally.
The quest, titled “Silence is Golden,” helps to showcase a core design principle of no hand-holding / mini-map marker loaded exploring and quest solving. Instead, players need to use the clues and info they have to figure out what are their next steps
It also highlights the current design of the investigation and concentration systems, the insanity mechanic and how the clue research system works.
