Feast your eyes on the upcoming 7th game of the Sherlock Holmes series called Crimes & Punishment.



Is it just me or does he get better looking as he ages? grin

We will update you and post more details as time goes on.

Happy Gaming!

Holmes looks very different.

Reminds me of a line from the BBC show:

"You being all Mysterious with your cheekbones and turning your collar up so you look cool..."

lol

Thanks, Ana.

And a first screenshot over here, apparently folks at Frogwares changed game engine, which is kinda surprising considering how much effort was put in graphical improvements of their inhouse technology used in Testament. Nevertheless, they will be using Unreal on this one and lighting certainly looks even better now smile.

He doesn't look like Sherlock anymore.
Is this supposed to be a younger version of Sherlock or something?

Looks like he added a little testosterone to one of his usual injections. grin

Looking forward to this one... as long as we get choices of perspective (1st-person being one of them)!

From what I understand the game consist of 8 cases that are connected and end up in one of 12 endings. Also not a point n click game and probably 3rd person.

Cheers

I cannot imagine that the game will not have a point and click option. We will get confirmation.

Clarification from frogwares:

- As of right now; the game has 8 cases and every case has between 6-12 endings.
- There will be first and third (possibly no 2.5) point of view of the camera.
- As for the game manipulation, the later Sherlock Holmes games were not purely point and click; which is a misnomer. The first person on those later games is you click-hold move forward. As I understand it, the new Sherlock will be the same (except possibly no 2.5 view).
- The slight difference in game manipulation is because of the different engine used on SH7.
- You can use keyboard and mouse OR just mouse. wave
