The Ukrainian studio also uses the new trailer to send a message to the world. It reads before the game scenes: “This game is dedicated to all those who lost their lives and their livelihoods as a result of the terror that has afflicted our country.”
At the end, the makers go back to the brutal war of aggression and describe what this situation means for the employees. Some are at the front. Others are active as volunteers or have fled to safety.
“The rest of us remain here in Ukraine, forced to deal with regular missile attacks on our critical infrastructure, causing power outages, water shortages and heating disruptions,” it said.
It is not easy to exist in this environment, let alone develop games. “So we are forever grateful to everyone who has supported our studio through this time. Your messages, concern, and continued interest have helped us stay united and somehow keep making games. Thank you for that,” was the final message.
Originally released in 2006, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is set in 1884 and follows how Sherlock and John, who were just roommates at the time, became a world-famous duo. According to Frogwares, the title was built from the ground up in the Unreal Engine and features “modern graphics and animations, an expanded storyline, numerous side quests and new mechanics”.
