In a unique collaboration between immersive theatre pioneers Les Enfants Terribles and VR trailblazers vrisch, the world’s most famous detective makes his VR debut in Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament, a live-motion VR deductive adventure for one to four players coming soon for Meta Quest 2 via the Meta Store.

Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament is a single or multiplayer deductive adventure and the first VR game to feature interactive live-action FMV with professional theatre actors. On your journey, you can interrogate characters and visit locations to scour for clues to unravel the mystery. Play alone or with up to three other players to visit crime scenes all over London, then meet in the ‘Mind Fortress’ to construct a case against your prime suspect. The game challenges you to solve a typically absorbing Holmesian whodunit written by prolific theatre writer Anthony Spargo and Les Enfants Terribles’ Artistic Director Oliver Lansley, whose collective work spans books, tv, theatre and Amazon productions.

Will you solve the baffling case in time? Can you call on your friends for help? And where is Sherlock anyway? The answers are far from elementary.

The current ‘in development’ version of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Hung Parliament is currently available to purchase via AppLab and SideQuest. This version is complete and is being used for testing and community feedback for the developers to take onboard ahead of the full launch.
