'The Sinking City' Uses Lovecraft's Racism as Raw Material for a Messy Game

Oakmont, Massachusetts is a city on the brink of destruction. Storms have ravaged the city on the coast for months. The rain rarely stops and the ocean has risen to consume entire districts. Dead sea creatures fester in the streets and crossing town requires a boat. Adding to tensions is a recent wave of refugees fleeing persecution in a neighboring town. Oakmont’s elders don’t like the newcomers and want them gone, but the storms and rising tides mean no one can escape.
