Launch trailer:

Nintendo Store:


The Sinking City is a single player, open-investigation, story driven detective game taking place in the dark corners of 1920’s United States. Inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft’s cosmic horror, players take on the role of Charles Reed, a private detective, who comes to the city of Oakmont, Massachusetts to investigate the cause of a supernatural flood that is eating away at the city’s walls and inhabitant’s minds. Designed with the idea of “no-hand holding” investigation, players will need to piece together clues and use their cunning to solve cases and not simply go from one waypoint marker to another. The game creates its sense of horror and unease through story, characters and atmosphere and does not devolve into using basic jump scares. The game has full VO and text in English, French, German and Russian.


Text support is available in Spanish, Italian, Czech, Polish, Ukrainian, Turkish, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese. The Nintendo Switch version of The Sinking City is currently a digital-only edition.

ABOUT THE SINKING CITY: The Sinking City is a story-rich, free investigation game set in a twisted H.P Lovecraft inspired universe. Step into Oakmont, Massachusetts – a place suffering decay and rot from unprecedented supernatural floods that slowly envelope the city and the minds of its inhabitants.


This is the world in which your character, private investigator Charles W. Reed, finds himself in. While slowly going insane from your own demons, you will need to use your detective skills to reveal the truth behind the unfathomable powers gripping you, the city, and its deranged citizens.


The Sinking City supports full VO and text in English, French, German and Russian.


Text support is available in Italian, Spanish, Czech, Ukrainian, Polish, Turkish, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean and  Portuguese Brazilian.
