THE SINKING CITY 2 AND THE WAR IN UKRAINE: FROGWARES ASKS FOR HELP ON KICKSTARTER

On the sidelines of the official presentation of The Sinking City 2 , the Ukrainian developers of Frogwares are turning to the community to involve it in the upcoming fundraising campaign that will be launched on Kickstarter based on the difficulties faced by the Kiev software house due to the Russian invasion.

It is the CEO of Frogwares himself, Wael Amr , who describes the difficult situation his development team is going through due to the conflict unleashed by the Russian Federation in February 2022: “Ukraine is still in a state of war, consequently we have We decided to turn to Kickstarter again to create a safety net for our team members to work on the title and the additional features we want to implement in the game . “

The top exponent of Frogwares also recalls how the use of Kickstarter for Sherlock Holmes The Awakening has borne fruit and allowed the members of the software house, and their families, to carve out a corner of relative economic stability, net of the nightmare constant represented by indiscriminate attacks on the population living in cities far from the conflict front: AMR explains in this regard that “the funds raised with Kickstrater have allowed us to deal with the power outages caused by Russian attacks on our infrastructures and the demands of the our team to move in with their families at very short notice. So we have to do the same with The Sinking City 2 Kickstarter campaign , also because it’s a much bigger and more complex game . 

The Sinking City 2 Kickstarter campaign will therefore start soon : based on the funds obtained, Frogwares plans to implement new features such as the new ingame mechanic of Madness, a greater number of boss fights, complete motion capture sequences for the main character and much more. In case you missed it, here is our special on The Sinking City 2, Lovecraft’s horror on Unreal Engine 5 .
