GOG adds two crime and two horror games from Frogwares to its DRM-free library and celebrates it with a sale.
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment is the most accomplished title of the detective games series, as it offers episodes with many decisions that have an impact on the storyline, while it has also received a huge graphical overhaul, compared to previous games, like The Testament of Sherlock Holmes (see review). Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles is a hidden object game that is only loosely based on Doyle’s short story, but it sure offers some nice puzzles and pretty art to boot.
Buying Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments which has a 50% launch discount until tomorrow, October 7th, 1 PM UTC, unlocks Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of The Baskervilles for free until October 11th, 1 PM UTC.
Dracula: Origin is another great entry in a series that uses Stoker’s Gothic novel as a background to incorporate classic and difficult puzzles, while it stays true to the vampire horror atmosphere. Dracula: Love Kills is a hidden object game and offers the same attention to detail with its visuals and sound design, even if there are quite a few puzzles to solve, too.
Both games as well as many other Frogwares titles are discounted and are part of the publisher sale which will last until tomorrow, October 7th, 1 PM UTC.
