This video starts as we receive a plea for help from a local librarian, Joy Hayden. Joy’s story is a unique one. This innocent looking woman has had to endure a punishment most disturbing and brutal. Her mouth is sewn, although not tight, and talking has been a painful struggle for her. We will leave it to the player to find out what Joy did to deserve a fate like this.

Joy is asking us to investigate her appartment, located in the poor district of Oakmont, The Shells. From what little we can get out of her, it becomes clear that a woman broke into her house, for reasons yet unknown. Joy says she knows the intruder, but categorically refuses to name her out of fear.

Once we’ve agreed to help the librarian in need, we will need to plan a route to reach The Shells. The road ahead is flooded, so taking our trusted boat seems to be the only option. As we travel from one district to the other, we see the impact the waters have left on the city. Abandoned houses, debris everywhere, once a peaceful American city is now in ruins.

Joy’s appartment looks normal at first, but we quickly realize that something bad frightening happened here. This is where our investigation begins…


The Sinking City is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 21, 2019.
