Playing it now also...like Sherlock's voice-little too much lip gloss in the close-ups!! lol One area might be cause problems-using the mouse and keyboard controls at the same time. Found it impossible, thanks for skips!!

I bought a game from Amazon that was just a code. I kept trying to pry the packaging open to get to the CD. Really ticked me off!

After communicating with a couple of people and doing research on Steam I
decided to cancel my order for the Sherlock Holmes game. Luckily I canceled
in time and wont be charged for it.

I had ordered the game on Amazon and had to send an email to the sender, so it
wasn't a typical cancellation.

I was wondering why games like this one are being released as "Steam Powered"
and not the typical way games were released - even though I could make a guess
and think it might be related to cost and profit margin.

I'm not even sure how the Steam system works but the one common thread I've seen,
more than once, is that quite a few people are not very happy with support.

I've been away from most adventure games lately - mostly using Big Fish - but I
really want to get back to these type of games but hesitate if the games are going
to be released through the "steam" process.

I guess I long for the old days of walking into a brick and mortar store and seeing
row after row of adventure games, ala Myst, etc.

I just hope the new Syberia game will not be released using Steam.

It will certainly be released on Steam.
What we don't know yet is whether the PC version will be released some other way.
The PC version may be a Steam exclusive for a few months -- or years.
It's only recently that Sherlock Holmes Testament became available at GOG, and Testament was first released on Steam 4 years ago (2012).

So, I guess if I want to buy the Sherlock Holmes game in the near future
I have no choice but to use the Steam path.

Where can I find the PC requirements for this game?

Thanks,

Robert

There's always a choice . Personally , I avoid Steam like the plague , unless I have no other option . I will wait until , hopefully , this and Crimes & Punishments come to GOG , or some other drm free avenue.

Hello.
I am also not a very big fan of steam. I always have trouble getting into their website. so I also have a long wait for this game.
