A complete remake of Sherlock Holmes: The Night of the Sacrifices is in the process of seeing the light of day at Frogwares, but the Ukrainian developer needs a boost on Kickstarter to make this project a reality, which should appeal to lovers of Lovecraftian atmospheres.

Warning :

Attention, the video presented in auto-play corresponds to the trailer of the 2008 remaster of Sherlock Holmes: The Night of the Sacrifices, and not of the remake just announced by Frogwares on current machines!

A Kickstarter for the remake of Sherlock Holmes

It’s certain Starter that you will have to stop by to find out more about this Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened freshly announced by the Frogwares teams. As soon as the Kickstarter campaign is launched, we should be able to lay our eyes on the very first trailer of the game of which only a few visuals have filtered for the moment.

I have to say that the Russian invasion in Ukraine has already forced Frogwares to cease development of its previous project, hence the need for the studio to go through crowdfunding to bring to fruition what promises to be an ambitious remake of Sherlock Holmes: The Night of the Sacrifices. Released at the end of 2006, this episode had been dusted off two years later in the form of a remaster (the one you can find in auto-play) but Frogwares talks about a complete overhaul of the title in the case of this new Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened.

No elements or code from the original game have been reused. We are in the process of rebuilding the whole game from scratch to run on Unreal Engine 4, using any new assets or those we can skillfully rework from Sherlock Holmes Chapter One which was released only a few month. We are also adding entirely new game mechanics while reworking the original mechanics to expand the methods of solving cases. Changes to the story and timeline involve the recording of entirely new voices. We’re also reworking the camera to be closer to modern third-person games, redoing all the UI, animations, and cutscenes. The list is long. It is essentially an entirely new game with only the underlying story of the cases remaining more or less intact. – Jaroslav Martyniuk, Team Leader at Frogwares

Sherlock Holmes The Awakened: the first images

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will see the famous detective and his faithful sidekick Dr. Watson try to elucidate a series of strange disappearances linked to the famous Cthulhu mythos imagined by writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft.

In any case, these first visuals give us a fairly telling overview of the direction intended by this remake in terms of atmosphere and artistic research. Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will rely on a younger Sherlock Holmes and an expanded story to explain how Watson and Holmes became so close. Secondary quests will appear while the perspective will be in the third person based on the possibilities offered by the Unreal Engine 4.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is announced for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
