A Case for Watson is a trippy detective simulator game where you play as one of the most popular detectives known to man! Well, at least his partner.
It aims to be an authentic detective simulator as you play as Watson to solve a murder before Sherlock arrives on the scene to steal your thunder. The game is unique because it’s not easy. You can’t just walk into a room and have all the hints and clues highlighted for you. You’ll actually have to LOOK for and FIND the clues in order to solve the murder. It’s not all laid out for ya like in many other puzzle games. If you’re playing this game, you’re playing it for the puzzles and thinking involved.
You look around the room and use your notepad to take notes about the place and sketch objects of interest. You can kind of take virtual photos using this sketchbook and also chat with various NPCs and “keep” notes about them by dragging/dropping their sentences they say into your notes. Everything they say can be logged in your notebook, so just take note of the important stuff. It’s really an authentic detective simulator and probably the most detailed one I’ve come across so far.
If you really like murer/puzzle games, try out A Case for Watson. When you think you’re ready, you’ll be quizzed by Sherlock Holmes on your deductions and you’ll have to find out everything about the scene. You’ll literally be quizzed on the most random things you’d never guess! It’s time to be the best detective you can ever be!
