At the same time, discover the hidden corners of the city centre and the former industrial hub that is Kelham Island, their architectural anomalies, stunning statues, great pubs, and plenty of street art.
Will you stop the killer, or will you be forced to survive by other, less heroic means...
Assisted by Sherlock Holmes, complete the game-master's fiendish challenges, scouring their words for hints as to their identity. The places they take you, the way they speak, anything could be a clue.
The clock is ticking. Identify them before time runs out or you might be their next victim.
At the end of each will be a fiendish riddle, solvable using things you can find in the streets around you. Reply with the right answer to receive the next clue and advance the story.
As you play you will receive information about the killer from Sherlock back at HQ. Use it, along with things the killer lets slip in their messages, to work out who they are and stop them before it's too late.
The route is walking distance and features optional breaks at great cafes/pubs.
The clues require no prior knowledge and come with hints to make the experience something everyone can enjoy.
