Earlier today, Frogwares unveiled a brand new video dedicated to their upcoming game The Sinking City. The game, an open world game set in a Lovecraftian universe, will launch sometime in 2018 for consoles and PC, but will be available to demo at the upcoming Game Developers Conference. The video – which you can see below – is a developer diary that takes players behind what it takes to prepare a demo for the title.

As you can tell from the video, the demo’s production process started way back in November and has faced some tough times since. “We wanted to show our community, and the gaming community in general, a perspective which hasn’t really been shown to the public that much – the process of preparing an event demo of a game that’s still in production” said Sergey Oganesyan, Frogwares Community Manager.

For more on the upcoming game, check out a brief description of the title below:

Frogwares, together with publisher Bigben Interactive, have released a candid video in which The Sinking City devs show the in’s and out’s of making a public demo. With GDC around the corner, Frogwares are preparing to showcase the game for the first time to the public at GDC San Franciso and EGX Rezzed London.

The Sinking City is an open world, open investigation game set in a Lovecraft universe. The player steps into the shoes of a private investigator who finds himself trapped in the city of Oakmont Massachusetts – a city suffering from unprecedented floods of supernatural origins. The player must uncover the source of whatever has taken possession of the city, and the minds of its inhabitants.

The Sinking City is currently in production and will launch sometime in 2018.
