Forspoken is a game that consistently fails to deliver, despite some lofty ideas, and manages only to impress in the most obscure moments.

In a heartfelt presentation featuring Sergiy Oganesyan, developer Frogwares' Head of Publishing, dedicated to those affected by the war in Ukraine, the studio showcased its upcoming Sherlock Holmes The Awakened -- the next installment in its heralded detective series starring the titular Holmes.



This time around, however, Frogwares is also dipping back into its Lovecraftian roots, revealing a game full of promise and growth for a studio that never rests on its laurels, with The Awakened being a from the ground up reimagining of the 1006 original.
Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is a Cthulhu meets Sherlock Holmes detective horror adventure. The game acts as a continuation of young Sherlock’s story with Holmes and Watson undertaking their first major case together. An Eldritch god-obsessed cult is making moves in the shadows to bring about a world-altering prophecy and it’s up to the young detective duo to thwart their plans. This is a creative take on what horror-filled and reality-breaking events could have met our heroes at such a crucial point in their lives to go on and shape them into the characters we all know they become. Delve into the trauma and fear that cements their friendship for good and the revelations that break Sherlock’s mind to create the flawed and haunted genius he is destined to be. Originally released in 2006, The Awakened is a full remake and substantial rewrite being rebuilt and redesigned from the ground up to run in Unreal Engine 4.
"The recent weeks have been really tough on the team mentally with all the missile and suicide drone strikes hitting Kyiv," said Oganesyan. "So it was a nice bit of respite to find out our game will be featured in this year's Golden Joystick Awards. Much thanks to them for giving our team a moment of happiness and pride in this chaos."

Currently the game is slated for release at some stage in 2023.
