Quote:
With the Testament of Sherlock Holmes, the series of video games dedicated to the famous detective marked a notable step in its history by dropping the traditional PC adventure games' gameplay in favor of a real investigation experience on consoles and PC.

With Crimes & Punishments, the series will mark a new milestone, as the development studio Frogwares will give up its home-made engine in order to switch to the well-known Unreal Engine 3 from Epic.
This choice will first allow the game to benefit from bigger environments that are more gorgeous and more varied, all while offering an incredible level of detail: dynamic lighting, shaders, post-processing effects, animations... the game is an all-around winner, as illustrated in the very first presentation video of the new engine of Sherlock Holmes' latest game, which we're sending you today.

This new engine not only benefits the game's graphics: it also allows the development of new investigation mechanics that the previous engine's limitations did not permit. These new mechanics give the player the feeling that they ARE Sherlock Holmes, and enable them to fully use the incredible talents and gifts known to all fans, such as his skill to guess many details about someone's life simply by glancing at them - or to imagine and reconstruct the course of event by carefully observing all the key details of a crime scene.

Crimes & Punishments will begin showcasing these unique features in the coming weeks through videos and presentations of the game. Crimes & Punishments will also be presented in more detail at E3 2013.



Happy Gaming,

Ana wave

Very beautiful.

I'm buying Holmes a comb for Christmas, so he can tidy up those stray wisps from his forehead. wink

It's starting to look like a game that is going to need a lot more Ooomph than my laptop will be able to manage. I'm getting the dread feeling that I wont be able to play this:-(

I don't think my Desktop with Windows XP and 8yo graphics card will have enough oomph either. I have all the SH games and will be disappointed if I can't play this new one.

Beautiful! I have a pretty good graphics card and can run pretty much all adventure games at full resolution, but between this and Dreamfall Chapters, I may finally need to get an upgrade. lol

Thanks for the info, Ana. Looking forward to the game. thumbsup
