from Crimes & Punishments
, a new Sherlock Holmes game in the works at Frogwares

It is now your turn to truly become Sherlock Holmes and lead your own investigations, as 8 captivating cases await you. Each case offers real freedom to players, who will have to make important moral choices instead of simply enforcing justice by the book. All decisions have an influence in the game and affect your character's reputation in addition to having realistic, sometimes unexpected, consequences.
Crimes & Punishments will be developed on Epic
's Unreal Engine 3, allowing the series to jump far ahead of previous installments in graphical quality. Environments will be more realistic and finely detailed with dynamic lighting and shadows.
