[Sleuthhounds - The Unlocked Room]

[The Unlocked Room]

Pureluck Homes has been abducted! He awakens from a chloroform induced stupor to find himself trapped in a dungeon. The only way out: an open hatch in the ceiling above, tantalizingly beyond his reach.

The Unlocked Room is a demo for a forthcoming, much larger Sleuthhounds game. Unlike most conventional demos, which have you repeat a part of the main game, The Unlocked Room is its own self contained adventure that serves as a preface to what’s to come.

Can you guide the dauntless detective to freedom? Can you learn the identity of the one behind Homes’s capture? And whatever happened to the invitation to Homes’s next big case?
