Sherlock Holmes and Cthulhu in a new computer game? It doesn’t get better than this.

Sherlock Holmes – The Awakened invites gamers to plunge into an adventure in which the imaginary myth of Cthulhu, made popular by author H.P. Lovecraft, intersects with the greatest detective of fiction literature in a battle between the rational and the supernatural.

The Awakened marks the meeting of two dramatically different worlds, one in which players will come fact-to-face with an ancient and unspoken evil, questioning their decisions and logic every step of the way.

Sherlock Holmes – The Awakened follows, to the letter, the style and character of Sherlock Holmes. The game understands that it is the method he uses in his investigations that has made him so famous. Everyone remembers Sherlock Holmes ferreting about here and there, magnifying glass in hand, on the hunt for the smallest clue. The game remains faithful to this image since the players must, throughout their investigations, gather information and evidence. But it is surely his keen sense of observation, his deductive reasoning and his logic that make Sherlock Holmes popular, and in this new adventure, the player will often need to use these skills to advance in the investigation.

It’s now available at retailers. I haven’t bought mine yet, but payday is Friday.

Hell, this might actually get me into PC gaming.


Some of the reviews on it make it sound less fun than it should be. Maybe we should wait until it’s in the mark down bin.


Mwahahahaha. My birthday is next week – guess what just got moved to the top of my birthday list? ::grin::

Perhaps one is supposed to emulate the great detective and play while partaking of certain substances. πŸ™‚
