J oin Sherlock Holmes in the most terrifying adventure of his career...

Based on a uniquely thrilling scenario, 'The Awakened' plunges you 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 mysterious sect whose members, it is claimed, are devout worshippers of the god Cthulhu.

The Famous Detective & Loyal Friend

Sherlock Holmes

The famous detective shares 221b Baker Street with Doctor John Watson. Sherlock Holmes is a true genius with a touch of eccentricity; his interest is limited to his work and to the history of crime. Holmes is independent and refuses to work for the police, since he is only interested in extraordinary cases that few people can solve. It is therefore with rather ironic respect that he collaborates with the authorities and their representatives.

Dr Watson

The loyal friend of Sherlock Holmes; Watson is a devoted companion. As a doctor he watches his friend and the depth of his genius. As a man he is flattered to be close to someone so talented. Faced with the certainty of Holmes' excesses, Doctor Watson is a rock of stability. Despite their opposing characteristics in various areas, they have an uncanny understanding of one another.

The Supporting Cast

Throughout your investigation you will meet more than sixty characters with whom you can interact freely. Meet four of them here.

Lord Archibald Rochester

Grand priest of the sect's Ceremony of Servitude, his fortune serves to finance the sect.

Gygax

Head of the sect's European cell, not because of religious conviction, but because of his amoral scientific whims. Gygax takes advantage of his role to experiment using dangerous operations upon his poor victims.

Beker

A patient at the psychiatric hospital, Becker is a drug addict who has been locked up in the asylum for shock rehabilitation. Becker remains conscious of his fate and his suffering!

Lucy

A young prostitute from New Orleans. This beautiful woman is a prisoner of her handler on the 'Louisiana Nymph', a boat of illicit concerns.
