Frogwares, together with publisher Bigben Interactive, has 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 is preparing to showcase the game for the first time to the public at GDC San Franciso and EGX Rezzed London.

“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.

The Sinking City Update #5 - How to Make an Event Demo

The video shows the demo’s production process that started way back in November, and the difficulties that the team faced when making the demo. It also discusses the ‘ethical’ dilemma that the team faced when preparing the presentation.

“It’s tempting to spice up the demo and make it look better than the final product. But this will be short term gain for long term loss.” said Wael Amr, the CEO of Frogwares. “We don’t want unfulfilled promises haunting us. We want to show as much truth as we can.”

The video also showcases new, never before shown gameplay and footage from The Sinking City. The video shows a glimpse of the demo itself as well. You’ll be able to play the demo at GDC and EGX this March and April respectively.

About the Sinking City 
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 be available in 2018 on PC and consoles.
