Sherlock Holmes is back on PC in The Awakened. This new Sherlock Holmes adventure game rises to the challenge of being entirely in 3D, while the creators have retained the traditional adventure game 'point & click' mechanic, in which the game is played solely with the mouse. The use of full 3D allows for an immersive experience, with changing game rhythm and additional enigmas and puzzles using physics and light. Mixing the works of Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft, The Awakened plunges the player into the heart of a mysterious and oppressive adventure. Sherlock Holmes, assisted by the loyal Doctor Watson, investigates strange disappearances which seem related to the activity of a secret sect which worships the god Cthulhu. Written by

In the section of the game where Holmes and Watson are in the warehouse district/Docks, they come across a postman that has been forced to drink alcohol and is feeling pretty poor for it. However, this section is set in London, yet the postman is wearing the uniform of the U.S. postal service. The U.S. uses the bugle symbol, the English postal service has always used a crown. See more
