Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened explains why Holmes and Watson became a globally famous detective couple.
Developer Frogwares has just released the first trailer for its Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened remake project, and invited gamers to contribute capital to implement the project. It is known that the amount of money this studio wants to be able to complete the game is only quite modest compared to other epic remake projects, according to which they need 70,000 Euros, which is about 1.7 billion VND.
Even though it’s called Sherlock Holmes, you don’t have to expect the game to deliver a casual detective experience. Instead, it will throw you into a world filled with legends about Cthulhu, ancient gods that can drive people crazy when they see them. They are worshiped by a mysterious cult, and many disappearances have occurred at the hands of these fanatics.
Whatever their plot, Sherlock Holmes must stop them before it’s too late. “For the first time in his life, Sherlock Holmes was really scared. A man of reason and science, Sherlock will have to face a strange creature beyond logic,” the game’s Steam page reads. “The pursuit of truth pushes Sherlock Holmes to the edge of madness, and this is a story Watson would never publish.”
Set in 1884, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will uncover the mystery of why Holmes and Watson became a globally famous detective couple. The game will release in 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Switch if the fundraising campaign is successful.
