Capitalizing on the popularity of a YouTube video that recently hit 2 million views, Creepy Watson puts Sherlock Holmes' assistant in the role of the Slender Man. Focus and Frogwares assures that in the upcoming Crimes & Punishments, players will be able to swap out the new Watson with the creepy 2006 version. It's all played as a gag, but it's hard not to want to play Sherlock Holmes as the unintentional horror game it was always meant to be.
