About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Ubisoft today announced Secret of the Silver Earring, a new interactive murder mystery inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Launching for the PC in September 2004, Secret of the Silver Earring will be available in North America for a suggested retail price of $19.99.

London 1895: A wealthy construction tycoon lies dead in his mansion. Join Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson as they interview suspects, investigate the crime scene and uncover family secrets that might point to the murderer. Play one of the most intriguing and captivating plots ever created for the Sherlock Holmes character. Clues will take players to Brazil, India, and more than 40 19th-century London locations. Developed by Frogwares Studio, Secret of the Silver Earring allows players to experience a new murder-mystery adventure featuring the investigative skills of world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.

"Secret of the Silver Earring is a great game for anyone who enjoys crime-solving drama and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," said James Regan, director, business development for Ubisoft's North American Division. "At under 20 dollars, it's a great value. You can grab a copy for yourself and give it as a gift for the murder-mystery fan in the family."

The game features over 30 investigating hours and five graphically rich levels that bring the fog-laced streets of London to life. Each level requires players to question witnesses, investigate potential suspects and uncover clues. Players will consider the evidence at the end of each level and put their powers of deduction to the test. Play as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in an original storyline inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
