Ukrainian developer Frogwares has released the first gameplay footage of its partially crowdfunded Sherlock Holmes remake, Sherlock Holmes The Awakened. This follows in the immaculately polished footsteps of the previous game, Sherlock Holmes Chapter One – although it’s bringing a distinctively Cthulhu-infused spin to the mix.

While the game is based on the 2008 title of the same name, it’s being completely rebuilt in Unreal Engine for PS5 and PS4, with an expanded storyline, new side-quests, revamped animations, and fresh gameplay mechanics. For all their flaws, we enjoy solving Frogwares’ sprawling murder mysteries, and the supernatural twist here is sure to add some seasoning to the series’ traditional sleuthing.
