The Sinking City from developer Fragwares is an interesting beast. On the one hand, it's a representative piece of H.P. Lovecraft-inspired storytelling in videogame form.

But let's let our review do the talking, here's a snippet:
Still, the story here is just really great. Fantastic even. And it’s not the devs’ fault that the issues mentioned above exist, either. Money was clearly a factor.
