And by meta game, it's kind of not. And while we're yet to see how deep it goes (so it might still be meta), what Frogwares has revealed in its latest Sherlock Holmes Chapter One video deep-dive suggests there's a lot hidden on the game's island setting of Cordona, the discovery of which will be entirely reliant upon your disguises.
This is shaping up to be Frogwares' best outing yet. The talented studio gave us a very solid effort with The Sinking City and if they've expanded on the various investigation mechanics found in that game, and added more to truly craft a Sherlock Holms fantasy here, as highlighted with the disguises mechanic, well this could all be elementary.
Getting information out of suspects is a priority for Sherlock. But on the island of Cordona not everyone is so welcoming to outsiders. So hopefully a change of threads will get those tongues wagging.
Similar to Frogwares’ previous investigation themed titles, the game will however not simply tell you what disguise to find and use on characters. It’s up to players to logically conclude what disguise could work based on observation, additional clues and sound reasoning. Similarly, a certain disguise can have the opposite effect and cause a character to be even more tight lipped.
Watch the disguises video deep-dive embedded below, and check back for more updates as we edge closer to the game's 2021 release.
