There is a new Sherlock Holmes game coming on May 27th.

Sherlock Holmes the devil's daughter

Looking forward to it, played them all up to now, great games that make you think.

Here is a CGI trailer, not much to go on but enough to make me want it  :LOL:

Yes I have my eye on that too - I follow them on Facebook. They have a Lovecraft game coming as well.  8)

That was a bit creepy, I think. Not my cup, really, but the cinematics and effects are well rendered.
Safe, Reliable Insanity, Since 1961!

Just watched it properly, yes it is a bit freaky, I think I will like that though. Seems like it will have a lot of atmosphere. And agreed the graphics work on the trailer was very nice indeed, lots of attention to detail. The envelope is always being pushed.

Data

I played Sherlock Holmes Jack The Ripper, that was pretty dark too, I like the way the game deals with humanities dark side, i.e. you track down and find the bad guys.

Set in Victorian England, exploring old London towns dimly lit streets rife with crime and prostitution, what's not to like  :D

OK, maybe not everyone's cup of tea.

My only complaint with these games is that they end too quick, normally you only get about 40 hours games play. Not as long as many other games but on the plus side some quality 40 hours game play.

Freddy

I'm with you Data. The Victorian setting is compelling, something about that era - a dark London and so on. And you can't get more classic than Sherlock.

Went to buy this game, the release date seems to have changed to June 10th. Put in my pre order on Steam and got the 30% discount. 

Freddy

How much is it it with the discount please ?

Data

I paid £20.99 on Steam, for a new game it seemed very reasonable  :)

  I haven't played a game in ages but I have to admit the game looks interesting, I don't recall Sherlock ever carrying a gun so haw is it played?

The Sherlock games are puzzle and mystery type games, they are made in such a way that it's close to being in an actual episode of Sherlock Holmes. Normally quite hard to play and need some "thinking time" but very good games in my mind. 

Data

Found this video of some of the actual gameplay, it's on the PS4, should look nicer on the PC.


Data

Enjoying this game, it's a nice change to play something at a slower pace, so slow there is a bowling green  :D

Here it is then, maxed out on the PC.


Freddy

Looks pretty - I like the Autumn trees  :D

Data

Yes, parts of the game are pretty, some parts are not, some of the old London streets for example.
