The quest “Silence is Golden” starts when the player receives a note – a call for help – from Joy Haden. Joy is the town’s bookseller, and one of the rare friends that the player can count on. The victim of a break-in who is still in a state of shock, the bookseller refuses to say more about it. Armed with nothing more than Joy’s address and a revolver, the player must lead the investigation on their own. This path will lead them through a sordid crime scene and toward mortal danger.
Taking place in the 1920s, The Sinking City is a game of action and investigation set in an open world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the horror master. The player steps into the shoes of Charles, a private investigator who just arrived in the city of Oakmont, Massachusetts in order to uncover the source of whatever has taken possession of the city and the minds of its habitants.
