Asmodee Announces Three New Unlock! Adventures

You find yourself in a dark and spooky house. Lightning strikes outside, briefly illuminating your surroundings. You start to hear strange noises from somewhere in the house. You run. You trip. You hit your head. And that’s when you wake up inside a submarine, deep underwater. The hull is creaking. Water is seeping in. You need to find a way out! You go from one room to the next, but bang your head on a portal as you go through. You wake up on a beach. It seems nice and pleasant, until a cutlass is pointed at your face and you realize you’re surrounded by pirates! Those three adventures are the next in the Unlock! series of “escape room”-style games coming from Asmodee and Space Cowboys.

Sherlock Holmes is widely known as one of the best detectives that has ever graced the literary world (along with Batman, of course).
