The Sinking City Guide is a comprehensive resource to the subject of the Sinking City ARG. It covers everything from the history of the ARG and its predecessors to the official lore, and other miscellaneous topics. It includes all evidence found (all chapters. 100% explored!), as well as all evidence that was found but never included.
The Sinking City is a narrative adventure game set in a small fictional city, where something is wrong with the city. The story plays out in a series of town-wide events, and many of these events are triggered by you. Some of these events are scripted, some are not. Some you can choose whether you want to participate in, others you can’t. The choices you make will determine what kind of person you are, and how the story plays out.

Welcome to a new feature I’ve been working on called The Sinking City : All Evidence Found (All Chapters. 100% Explored!) Guide. I have been writing about the Sinking City (a 2D Action-Adventure game developed by Two Point Studios) since I finished it in 2015 and have spent the past two years developing the guide. The Sinking City is a narrative-driven game that allows you to explore a world overrun by zombies and who you are ultimately pitted against and it is one of my favorite games of all time..
