Trailer features new gameplay footage, how much playtime to expect and a small update from the team in Ukraine.
22 November 2022 – Kyiv, Ukraine + Dublin, Ireland | Ukrainian developer Frogwares have been given a featured video spot at the 2022 Golden Joystick Awards.
The video is a summary explainer of what the game is about and how the team are coping with development as the war in Ukraine moves into its 10th month.
The recent weeks have been really tough on the team mentally with all the missile and suicide drone strikes hitting Kyiv. So it was a nice bit of respite to find out our game will be featured in this year’s Golden Joystick Awards. Much thanks to them for giving our team a moment of happiness and pride in this chaos.Sergiy Oganesyan, Head of Publishing, Frogwares
About the game:
Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is a Cthulhu meets Sherlock Holmes detective horror adventure. The game acts as a continuation of young Sherlock’s story with Holmes and Watson undertaking their first major case together. An Eldritch god-obsessed cult is making moves in the shadows to bring about a world-altering prophecy and it’s up to the young detective duo to thwart their plans. This is a creative take on what horror-filled and reality-breaking events could have met our heroes at such a crucial point in their lives to go on and shape them into the characters we all know they become. Delve into the trauma and fear that cements their friendship for good and the revelations that break Sherlock’s mind to create the flawed and haunted genius he is destined to be. Originally released in 2006, The Awakened is a full remake and substantial rewrite being rebuilt and redesigned from the ground up to run in Unreal Engine 4.
