'Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened' Goes Gold

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened has a traditional Point & Click game play, but rises to the challenge of being entirely in 3D; while the creators have kept classic game mechanics, the game benefits from the freedom and the immersion brought by a superb animated and detailed real time 3D environment.

In Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, players will take on the role of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his able assistant Doctor Watson as they unravel the horrifying mysteries of a sinister cult of the dark god Cthulhu.

Developed by Frogwares, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened combines the eerie mysticism of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos with the mystery-solving powers of the great fictional detective - Sherlock Holmes. The Awakened is the first fully 3D Sherlock Holmes game, and will feature rich graphics and detailed environments. Fans of the mystery genre will feel right at home with the point-and-click interface as they explore multiple distinctly chilling environments while solving mysteries and completing challenging and creative puzzles. With 60 unique characters roaming the game world, it will be difficult to tell who is friend or foe in this, Sherlock Holmes' most challenging, and horrifying, adventure.
