Sherlock Holmes The Awakened Remake Out Now

Detectives, we have arrived! After much anticipation, Sherlock Holmes The Awakened has been released! Enjoy the Lovecraftian madness. We made this game during one heck of a time. We made it while our country is at war. We faced challenges such as constant power outages, irregular work schedules, air raids, evacuations, losing our homes, saying goodbyes to our loved ones (through immigration, or worse), and losing team members so that they could defend our country.

We worked from our homes, our office, and from underground bunkers or train stations. It was an enduring and unending nightmare. But with all this chaos around, working on The Awakened helped us maintain a little sense of normalcy. We truly gave it all – sweat, emotions, and spirit to the development of this game.

We express our sincere gratitude to our families and friends for their unwavering support. It’s in times like these that you feel how important people that you can rely on really are. We send our heartfelt thanks to our Kickstarter supporters for their patience and encouragement through this time too. You backing us meant the world as it gave us confidence that there are thousands of people out there wanting to experience The Awakened all over again.

And to all of our supporters, please know that your kindness deeply touched us over the last year. The amount of heart and positivity was overwhelming. Some of you even wrote to us and offered a place in their homes. How beautifully… beautiful is that. So thank you once again for all of your support.

Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is a Cthulhu meets Sherlock Holmes detective horror adventure. The game acts as a continuation of young Sherlock’s story with Holmes and Watson undertaking their first major case together.

An Eldritch god-obsessed cult is making moves in the shadows to bring about a world-altering prophecy and it’s up to the young detective duo to thwart their plans. This is a creative take on what horror-filled and reality-breaking events could have met our heroes at such a crucial point in their lives to go on and shape them into the characters we all know they become. Delve into the trauma and fear that cements their friendship for good and the revelations that break Sherlock’s mind to create the flawed and haunted genius he is destined to be.

Originally released in 2006, The Awakened is a full remake and substantial rewrite being rebuilt and redesigned from the ground up to run in Unreal Engine 4.

Thank you,
