It's been more than a month since we've seen any Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments
news from developer's Frogwares, with a justice and immortality
trailer being the last video to show off some of Sherlock Holmes' skills.
In this newly released video, Sherlock Holmes showcases plenty of his talents. We know he's clever, can work out what somebody's life is about from a look, has a very "eccentric" personality and, of course, can string seemingly unconnected clues together to piece together a crime as if it was child's play, but all of this knowledge and smartness will amount to nothing if not put into the right players hands.
In this new Crimes & Punishments video, we can admire the great work Frogwares studios has carried out on Sherlock Holmes and the cast of characters who feature in the six thrilling investigations in the game. Motion captured animations, meticulously detailed faces, lip-sync, the interplay between actor and cinematic cameras bring all the dialog, interrogation and interaction to life.
Besides the impressive visuals to be seen in the trailer, we can also catch a bit of footage of the new "deduction board", which is basically Sherlock Holmes' brain on your screen! Not literally the brain splattered on the screen, but more of an inside look where players will really get to see just how Sherlock can put the dots together to reveal facts and make the decisions on who's innocent and who's not. Check out the trailer and enjoy:
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment
