About This Game

One of the world's most beloved literary characters... now YOUR problem.


Hearth & Holmes is a mystery-solving game set on a backdrop of cozy life simulation.

You play as John Watson, new to his friendship with Sherlock Holmes and desperately trying to cajole his reckless, work-obsessed friend into exercising some level of self-care.

Accompany Holmes through the formative years of his development as a detective:

  • Should he focus on his Chemistry experiments or on learning the Criminal History of London?
  • Should he hone his skills in Disguise or in Deduction?
  • Or should he abandon all other subjects and respond to every challenge he encounters by playing the Violin at it?

Explore life at 221B Baker Street:

  • Finish writing 'A Study in Scarlet' and try to get it published.
  • Plot with Mrs. Hudson to make sure Holmes eats breakfast.
  • Apologize to Irene Norton for pretending to set her house on fire.
  • Play bridge with Professor Moriarty, who is an innocent college professor and certainly doesn't have any nefarious designs on your friend.
  • Confront darker matters: Holmes' substance abuse and your own PTSD from the Anglo-Afghan War.

A trailer with captions is available on YouTube.
