Sherlock Holmes, with the help of Dr. John H. Watson, investigates strange disappearances in relation to the activity of a secret cult of Cthulhu.

Unlike the fixed third-person perspective of the previous Frogwares title Sherlock Holmes: Secret of the Silver Earring, The Awakened's gameplay takes place in an entirely real-time 3D landscape and from a first-person perspective, losing the pre-rendered backgrounds of its predecessor.

Although the game has adopted the view popularized by the first-person shooter genre, it retains the point-and-click aspect of most adventure games, giving the player the ability to complete the game using the mouse alone.


Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened Windows Good disguising is only at reach of a few.
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened Windows The classic "Victoria Regina" bullet holes in Holmes' apartament.
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened Windows The American state of Louisiana
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened Windows Be careful not to be taken for one of these.
