Check out the Trailer:
The game takes place in the fictional city of Oakmont, Massachusetts, set in the famous American Roaring Twenties. It’s a very distinct and often romanticized period of time in the U.S. history: economic growth, rise of consumerism, jazz, prohibition, gangsters and ethnic conflicts. Besides that, Oakmont is a very strange place with its fair share of dark and sinister secrets. The city has been mostly secluded from the mainland since its very foundation in the 17 century. Local inhabitants are really not fond of strangers, and are protective of their rules and traditions.
Following the legacy of Vikings and Indians, who lived in these lands before, they practice often shocking religious rituals and ceremonies. Their isolation and distrust of outlanders are only reinforced by the ongoing calamity that is tearing the city apart. Most streets in Oakmont are buried beneath a mysterious flood that came as if out of nowhere. The disaster has claimed too many lives already, highlighting the local government’s inability to deal with the situation.
