Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper Screenshots



Frogwares Studio and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to reveal the very first screenshots of Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper, the new game that will be released for PC in March 2009. Recognized as one of the best adventure game franchises and applauded by the press around the world, Sherlock Holmes is back with probably the series’ most terrifying investigation. In the game, the player will launch into a hunt for the most dangerous serial killer in England’s history: Jack the Ripper.

The Sherlock Holmes website: http://www.sherlockholmes-thegame.com/

The year is 1888, and the setting is London's Whitechapel area, where a horrible series of crimes has taken place in this East End district. The bodies of several women who have suffered horrible mutilations have been found. The police have been having a hard time finding a serious lead as the murders continue, creating paranoia and terror in the streets. Sherlock Holmes sets out to find clues in the dark, gloomy streets of Whitechapel, following a macabre trail of the one that the press calls Jack the Ripper. During this terrifying adventure, Sherlock will attempt to shed some light on the mystery that shrouds the identity and motive of the one who hides behind this terrifying nickname.

Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper will offer players two different 3D view modes, a third-person view in the pure adventure game point & click style and a first-person view. The player will be able to play in one or the other mode or even combine them for greater immersion in this terrifying adventure. The player will also be able to use a unique new system for piecing together crimes in order to test hypotheses as the investigation progresses, in order to find the terrifying serial killer’s bloody trail.
