Halloween is coming! You doubtless know this already, because your local grocery store has, in all likelihood, had spooky decorations up since March or something, but it’s actually pretty close now. As such, here’s some spooky music for your delectation — specifically, the main menu theme from Frogwares’ 2006 adventure Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened.

Frogwares’ Sherlock Holmes series is one of the underdogs of modern adventure gaming, spanning a series of several authentic but original Holmesian stories. The Awakened was somewhat unusual in the series in that it delved into supernatural territory — specifically, it incorporated elements of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, and was the first entry to be issued with an M (17+) rating from the ESRB.
