My love of the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is no secret. His lanky, heroin addicted, and obsessively logical detective has held a special place in my heart since I was little. That’s why this trailer for an upcoming Sherlock Holmes video game has me excited.
There have been many adaptations of 22b Baker Street’s most famous resident and his cohorts lately as the tales and Holmes universe has resurged into mainstream popularity ( the Robert Downey Jr. movies and the comic series Moriarty, for example) but few have strayed far from the mold that Conan Doyle forged the great detective in. This one looks to be different, with a new take on the actions of Holmes before his death.
I have been burned by adaptations before, but I look forward to this one’s release. Hopefully it won’t be elementary*.
