Holmes is known for his high intelligence, and high level of deduction skill. However, Sherlock as he was imagined and written by Arthur Conan Doyle is also a master of disguise, a characteristic that Frogwares transposed in Crimes & Punishments, as one of the many skills the players will actively use to solve the 6 cases of the game.
In turn, we find at Baker Street, in Holmes’ bedroom, a wardrobe that holds the key to Holmes’ disguises, as well as a dressing table housing wigs, hats, glasses, different hair styles and beards. everything needed to transform into about anyone! This is a very useful skill, when it comes to approach suspects who might be wary of a well-known detective, and get information – or even confessions – by faking being a member of their social class. This is exactly what reveals today’s video, “Art of Subversion“, as we witness Sherlock disguising as an Irish sailor to approach a suspect.
