Journalists Game Informer published a record gameplay horror The Sinking City and talked about some of the mechanics of the game.
The video showed one of the first cutscenes, the arrival of detective Charles Reed in the town of Oakmont, as well as his investigation during one of the quests – without revealing the solution of the basic mysteries.
