What is Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament?
Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament is a single or multiplayer deductive adventure and the first VR game to feature interactive live-action FMV with professional theatre actors. On your journey, you can interrogate characters and visit locations to scour for clues to unravel the mystery.
Play alone or with up to three other players to visit crime scenes all over London, then meet in the ‘Mind Fortress’ to construct a case against your prime suspect. The game challenges you to solve a typically absorbing Holmesian whodunit written by prolific theatre writer Anthony Spargo and Les Enfants Terribles’ Artistic Director Oliver Lansley, whose collective work spans books, tv, theatre and Amazon productions.
- Immerse yourself in the world of Sherlock Holmes, examine crime scenes with his famous magnifying glass and learn all about the case from Doctor Watson himself.
- Visit Holmes’ ‘Mind Fortress’ to construct your case using the clues you have picked up at the locations spread around London.
- Play with up to three other friends to pool your deductive skills and solve the case.
- Meet and interrogate a collection of malevolent misfits, all of whom have good reason to carry out such diabolical deeds.
The current ‘in development’ version of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament is currently available to purchase via AppLab and SideQuest. This version is complete and is being used for testing and community feedback for the developers to take on board ahead of the full launch.
Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament will be available soon via the Meta Store for Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro devices.
