About the StoryJoin a dying Sherlock Holmes in a journey through his memories.
Sherlock Indomitable is a direct adaptation of two Sherlock Holmes stories into a text adventure. At least 90% of the text is taken directly from Arthur Conan Doyle's writing. This game uses the clue/conversation system from my 2016 game Color the Truth.

Where the game falls short is as a puzzle. The player is always told how to proceed, and there were no proper challenges. Ultimately, the player ends up hitching a ride with Sherlock, rather than playing him.
I'd really love to see the same game mechanism used for further Sherlock games, offering a significantly higher difficulty.
