About

A new kind of mystery simulation game where you must deduce not only the culprit, but the victim as well!

2075, London.

Heinous crime around the world has been reduced by 90 percent thanks to the implementation of a “Foresight AI” which is able to predict future crimes based on information found on the network.

However, the Foresight AI predicts a future where the world falls into ruin due to incidents which cannot be prevented.

This concerns the system developers, who engineer an AI that specializes in tracking and solving these crimes.

The new AI is given the name “Sherlock” as an homage to the legendary detective of old.

Pursuing a number of cases leads Sherlock to a single conclusion.

At the center of these incidents Sherlock’s equal rival, the AI “Moriarty,” lies in wait.
