An interactive, narrative mystery experience – starring the greatest detective ever

Join Sherlock on one of his earliest cases in Zurich

The 'The Wagner Ritual' transforms the classic Sherlock Holmes story 'The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual' into an immersive experience in Virtual Reality. Sherlock visits Switzerland on one of his earliest cases and solves an old mystery, restoring a treasure to the world in the process.

The player jumps right into the story and accompanies the characters through various, beautiful locations in Zurich. 'The Wagner Ritual' is a unique blend of storytelling through photos and voice-over, which has never been done before in Virtual Reality.

'The Wagner Ritual' was designed during the 2015 Gear VR Jam.
