Sherlock: The Network

Client: Hartswood Films

THE APP IS...

An iOS, Android and Amazon app which invites the player to join the detective's trusted ‘homeless network’ across London. Players have the opportunity to help Sherlock and John solve new cases - ranging from simply receiving and passing on messages, to the more difficult task of sourcing intelligence by infiltrating the enemy and decrypting complex codes and puzzles with the ultimate mission across the ten various cases to thwart one overarching plot: the kidnapping of Mrs Hudson.
