This came out some time ago on PC. Unfortunately, it's a dud. Cool premise, but the execution is lacking. It's a bog standard adventure game that's rough around the edges and has no redeeming features. Could've been a cool game in the hands of more skilled and imaginative developers.

You’re talking about the 2006 release, yes. This is a ground up remake that is a total rewrite of that game meant to continue on from their latest young Sherlock game. From their kickstarter…




So we are taking this foundation and remaking The Awakened entirely from the ground up. On top of a slew of visual and gameplay changes, we are rewriting the story to be a direct continuation of our young Sherlock history, diving into the key events in his formative years that could have led him to become the flawed and broken genius we all know so well. We are also treating this game as the first real case Sherlock undertakes with Watson and making story changes to be more reflective of how such a harrowing endeavor could bring them closer together.  Put simply, this is not a just remaster. It is a full-scale remake where the only assets from the original game we are using are the general case plots. Some of the major changes we are making include:





  • All new graphics and asset models
  • New animations
  • New cutscenes
  • Additional investigation gameplay mechanics
  • Rewriting the story to connect with the case from The Awakened to a younger Sherlock
  • Amplifying the story behind how Watson and Holmes came to be so close
  • Case story rewrites
  • Additional side quests
  • New English voice over recordings and translations into multiple languages
  • UI overall haul
  • Change to 3rd person perspective camera
  • Additional quality of life features





We’ll see whether they succeed or not but I liked elements of Sinking City despite its myriad of technical problems (which have been solved on PS5/Series X) so I’m willing to give this a shot.
