[prMac.com] Guilford, Maine - Sherlock Holmes 1 - Murder at the Diogenes Club by newcomer developer AppEndix LLC has just been updated to v1.1. The Update includes two new features (for free!), and a number of text and translation corrections in the 6 supported languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Brazilian/Portuguese).
New DIARY feature: the new Diary feature automatically saves the last text chapter to your notepad, allowing you to re-read the previous section for important clues you may have missed.
New Bug/Typo Reporting feature: the app includes 575 text sections in 6 languages. We do our best, but if you do find a misprint or incorrect translation, please let us know, so we can fix it!
Text corrections: we worked day and night with the original book translators to correct typos and translations that crept into the release version.
About the App:
Sherlock Holmes 1 - Murder at the Diogenes Club is both: a book, in fact a complete novel in the best tradition of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, written by renowned gamebook author Gerald Lientz and published in print form in 1988; and an interactive app, in which you attempt to uncover the secret behind the gruesome Murder at the Diogenes Club with the help of the great Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
Featuring a fully interactive interface with dice rolls, character sheet, sound effects and more, this unique e-book app for iPhone and iPad is available on the AppStore for just $0.99!
Scandal shakes London's most exclusive men's club as Colonel Philip Sylvester lies murdered in the reading room. Can you uncover the murderer, the motive and the method? Is anyone among the respected but anti-social members a likely suspect? Can you rely upon Sherlock Holmes or his older (and some say "more accomplished") brother Mycroft for assistance?
YOU are the detective in this intriguing first "gamebook" of the Sherlock Holmes Solo Mysteries series. This gamebook also includes a second, complete mystery adventure, IRISH STAR. Two complete Holmes mystery adventures in one app!
What is a gamebook, you ask? A gamebook is unlike a regular book. In a regular book, you read one chapter after another, from 1 to 2 to 3. In a gamebook, at the end of chapter 1, you have to make a decision (or roll the dice, or both); and your decision and the results of your actions determine what chapter you read on from there. In this way, a gamebook does not present you with just one fixed storyline, but splits into dozens and sometimes hundreds of different outcomes. YOU determine how the story goes on. And no two plays are the same.
