Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures is a new standalone game in the Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective series of games. You and your fellow detectives must work together to uncover clues, follow leads and gather evidence in order to solve a variety of crimes from Regent’s Park to London Bridge. Many women have been found slain in the neighborhood of Whitechapel, so you must fit together all pieces of the puzzle to stop Jack the Ripper’s vicious crimes.
Reopen the cold cases of Consulting Detective with new information, revised and adapted for Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures. Each case book will provide you with the necessary details to begin your investigation and a number of leads for you to follow. You must speak to suspects, witnesses and informants. The leads for each case are scattered across the map, and you will have to decide which lead deserves your attention first and then decipher the clues you have collected.
A brand new element of Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures is the multi-case Jack the Ripper campaign. This campaign consists of four casebooks which must be investigated in order. The information included in them is heavily based on known facts and actual testimonies related to the real-world Jack the Ripper’s 1888 murders. Throughout the investigation of these cases, you will assist the authorities in identifying the details of five heinous murders and track down the monstrous criminal who committed them. The police need answers to get to the criminal and you are the best team for the job!
