Frogwares has announced that one of its most memorable entries in its long-running Sherlock Holmes series of adventure games is coming to iPad in the fourth quarter of this year. Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened combines an original Holmesian mystery with the supernatural thrills of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos.
Holmes and Watson are enlisted to investigate a kidnapping case and quickly find themselves confronted by a Cthulhu-worshipping sect. The dynamic duo will find themselves travelling from London to Scotland via New Orleans and Switzerland, all to solve a great mystery and prevent big slobbering tentacle monsters from (possibly) invading our reality and doing unpleasant things to everyone.
The iPad version will feature all of the content from the original game with a brand new touchscreen interface. Further details are promised soon. In the meantime, check out the official site for the PC original.
