Sherlock Holmes The Awakened - Official Release Date Trailer

It seems to be reviewing OK, no doubt helped by the fact that the original was a pretty good adventure game to begin with.

On February 24th, 2022 our home, Ukraine, was brutally invaded and thrown into all-out war.

In April 2022, we began development of Sherlock Holmes The Awakened.

This game is dedicated to all the fighters, volunteers, supporters, and every single citizen who stood their ground and kept our country standing.

It is our own act of resilience against the chaos and horror the enemy tried to impose on our livelihood.
