Default The Sinking City - Steam Page Up

January 7th, 2021, 00:47
The Sinking City is again listed on Steam according to PCInvasion. Apparently the reason the game was not available on Steam earlier, despite the Appeal ruling, was due to the Epic exclusivity deal period which has now expired. The game is not currently available to buy.

While the litigation is still ongoing, the Paris Court of Appeal ruled in October of 2020 that the contract termination was unlawful and ordered Frogwares to continue fulfilling it. Due to this ruling, The Sinking City is now once again available on all storefronts, including Steam.

[…]

The Sinking City is an adventure and investigation game set in an open world inspired by the universe of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of Horror. The half-submerged city of Oakmont is gripped by supernatural forces. You're a private investigator, and you have to uncover the truth of what has possessed the city… and the minds of its inhabitants.

  • An oppressive atmosphere and story inspired by the universe of H.P. Lovecraft.
  • A vast open world that can be explored on foot, by boat, in a diving suit…
  • High replay value thanks to an open investigation system: each case can be solved in a number of ways, with different possible endings depending on your actions.
  • An arsenal of weapons from the 1920s with which to take on nightmarish creatures.
  • Manage your mental health to untangle the truth behind the madness.

I hadn't noticed that. I have adjusted the newsbit.

I played through TSC when it was originally released. Not bad but nothing mind-blowing. It's worth it for Lovecraft fans, but don't pay full price.

Here's a short review I wrote.

Looking forward to getting it! Love what I have seen so far, but as a Lovecraft fan though as JDR13 stated.

If you do buy it, I strongly recommend getting it with the Necronomicon DLC pack. This added lots of mini-quests (small side investigations) and even a boss fight which the main game lacked. I was skeptical originally, but I felt it really enhanced the game, and can be played as you explore throughout the game.

As for the game itself, I felt the "open world" element was a real let down, as was much of the combat. The Sherlock Holmes games (with which it shares a lot of DNA) were a bit more focussed and were better for it. That being said, as a Lovecraft fan, I enjoyed it all the way through, but it felt "padded", and strangely empty outside of the core story beats.

And it’s gone from Steam again. Did not manage to see a price and be able to buy it. Oh well.

Interesting. Perhaps the court ruling was overturned?

Well it's still available and on sale right now at Origin if anyone is interested.
