“We did our best to deal with this quietly and amicably but to no avail. Even after court rulings in our favour we are still being roadblocked in simply being allowed to sell our own game. Fans of our games keep asking for answers and quite frankly we are so tired not being allowed to tell them the honest truth. Hence our public statement.” - Wael Amr, CEO Frogwares
The Sinking City was released last year across both current gen platforms and PC with releases on both the Epic Game Store and GOG. Francesco praised the Lovecraftian adventure, calling it “one of the best games, if not the best games, based on the universe created by H.P. Lovecraft, using the lore to create an original story that doesn't deviate from the canon at all.”
