Sherlock Holmes is back on PC with his most ambitious title yet: 'The Awakened'. An investigation will lead the most famous detective of all time to the edge of the irrational as he thwarts the designs of a sect of the disciples of Cthulhu. This new adventure of Sherlock Holmes rises to the challenge of being entirely in 3D, while the creators have retained the traditional adventure game 'point & click' mechanic, in which the game is played solely with the mouse. The use of full 3D allows for an immersive experience, with changing game rhythm and additional enigmas and puzzles using physics and light.
Based on an exciting scenario, 'The Awakened' plunges the player into the heart of a mysterious and oppressive adventure. Sherlock Holmes, assisted by the loyal Doctor Watson, investigates strange disappearances which seem related to the activity of a secret sect which worships the god Cthulhu.
Discover the adventures of Sherlock Holmes with a gripping atmosphere, for the first time ever delivered in a thoroughly intensive and wholly immersive real-time 3D world. Throughout your investigation you will meet more than sixty characters with whom you can interact freely. Hundreds of clues and objects will need to be scrutinised and utilised in order for the investigation to be solved. From the most logical deduction down to the smallest detail, the decor and textures offer the player a true feeling of living the role. Cities and places exude authenticity, creating environments you would expect to find at the end of the 19th Century. And yet, amidst the daily grind and bustling lives of society, there also exists terrifying places, and it is in these confines where you will have to control your fears, retain your focus, and ascertain the truth.
Sherlock Holmes - The Awakened offers rewarding gameplay, a true symbiosis of two technologies specific to adventure games: WARP (used in the first Myst or Amerzone) which allows first-person movement in pre-calculated decors; and 3D surroundings, which allows the character to be controlled and to become a spectator of the adventure, thus offering a large freedom of movement. The advantage of mixing these two game modes provides a greater diversity of scenario, interaction with more people and a high factor of realism. You will also be challenged by puzzles in 3D, linked to physics for example, in which the weight of objects can be used to trigger mechanisms, and others using dynamic light, where a torch might be used to light, in real time, certain places in order to reveal clues or other secrets and passageways.
Sherlock Holmes - The Awakened follows, to the letter, the style and character of Sherlock Holmes. The game understands that it is without a doubt the method Holmes applies in his investigations that have made him so famous. Everyone remembers Sherlock Holmes ferreting about here and there, magnifying glass in hand, on the hunt for the smallest clue, and the game remains faithful to this image since the players must, throughout their investigation, gather information and evidence. Furthermore, it is also his sense of observation, his deduction and his logic that make Sherlock Holmes popular, and in this new adventure, the player will often be called on in these 3 areas to progress the investigation.
