"Ink Spotters is, by far, the best interactive story app I have ever encountered." -BakerStreetBabes.com

Some of the most brilliant minds in casual games bring you a new Sherlock Holmes adventure written by NY Times best-selling author Sean Stewart.

More than just a story, you will use your wits to follow Sherlock from Victorian high society to the seedy underworld of gaslight London.

READ IT
The Art of Detection reads like a comic … except that every page is hidden but one. You come to that first page like a detective arriving at a crime scene. Your challenge: find the clues that will uncover the rest of the story.

PLAY IT
Getting started is simple–just type a word you think might lead to more of the story. You might want to learn more about "KATE" the tavern wench, find out who is lurking in the passing "CARRIAGE", or inspect the "BLOODSTAIN" on a ransom note.

Each clue you find unlocks another page, and brings you closer to solving the case!

DIP IN
The Art of Detection has more than 100 gorgeous panels to unlock. Do a couple between chores, or settle in for hours of entertainment. When you have uncovered the last page, you’ll have a beautifully illustrated adventure that's yours to keep forever.

THE GAME IS AFOOT!
The Art of Detection is the first of many upcoming releases from Ink Spotters, a new game publisher from interactive fiction pioneer Sean Stewart and casual gaming vets Ed Allard and Matt Scott (Feeding Frenzy, Bejeweled, Plants vs Zombies). Look for Sherlock Holmes: The Last Breath - coming soon!

“Ink Spotters is, by far, the best interactive story app I have ever encountered, and the game feels like an essential part of the experience. It’s not a comic book with a gaming element as an afterthought; it’s a full-fledged mystery game with a story as its reward.”
-- BakerStreetBabes.com

“Mixing the puzzles with the story made me feel like I was on the trail with Mr. Holmes himself! Deductive word-bending mystery solving at its best!”
– Graeme Devine, creator of The 7th Guest

“A true innovation in graphic narrative. Ink Spotters seamlessly merge great stories with a format that empowers each reader to discover them in a unique way.”
-- Jordan Weisman, creator of BattleTech, Shadowrun, WizKids and FASA.

“Ink Spotters are both beautiful and addictive. Built by one of the best storytellers in the world, they will keep both experienced and first-time gamers entertained. Highly recommended!”
-- Elan Lee, creator of Exploding Kittens

Really cool!

Awesome bit of interactive storytelling. Art is also super pretty :))

Enjoyable....but a bug needs fixed!

It occurred when a thread popped up about the air quality of 1890 London being worse than modern day Beijing, and I tried to "save image" after hitting the Share button. The game crashed, and when I reopened it, all of the panels I'd opened (the considerable progress I'd made), had vanished. Back to square one!
This is quite inexcusable, Watson! Please don't put products into the marketplace without play-testing EVERY function!

Smart and addictive. Totally worth paying for!

You don't have to be a Sherlock fan to get sucked into this new style of game. It's a really cool, immersive mystery that you have to figure out--using clues and your smarts--unlocking comic panels as you go.

The writing is great and the art is beautiful. You can tell that a lot of thought went into every detail. I'm totally impressed.

It's both addictive and put-downable so you can play in short bursts or longer runs. I don't usually pay upfront for games, but this was a TON of gameplay for the money without annoying in-game upsells.

Five stars, definitely recommend it.
