Sherlock Holmes

A new developer diary for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is here to give us a view on how the team is crafting the story for Sherlock Holmes

In addition to the gameplay and investigations in Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, it has been definitely let known that we are going to get a rather dynamic story in the mix of it all. This is something that Frogwares has done well for a while now and there is a lot to live up to with the various other stories and media we have had for the IP so far. This is why they are digging in for it all and getting us all ready for a new story for the Sherlock Holmes mythos. Now we have a look at just some of the fun techniques the team is using to help enhance it all and get us further into the mindset of the characters and world. All with the latest developer diary we have to share.

You can get a better look at it all down below, but it does look like they have been trying to snag some of the elements that worked in the Sherlock Holmes films and BBC shows out there. There are also a few highlights in there that most of us will miss if it was not pointed out, but will help make the scenes. All in how Sherlock Holmes and John are framed in the scenes and how the camera will shift to help explain the mental states of the characters. Little things like this should help us all feel more like the detective and see how the isolation and investigations will flow. Have a look at the following video to get some gameplay and see just what we are talking about here.
