iClassics Productions Anniversary: Sherlock Holmes Free for Limited TimeNovember 11, 2016
Barcelona, Spain – iClassics Productions is very pleased to make the Interactive Adventures of Sherlock Holmes free for a limited time. This is to celebrate their two-year anniversary, in which short time they have staggeringly managed to produce nine incredible, immersive and interactive apps from a range of authors.
One of such authors happens to be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and The Interactive Adventures of Sherlock Holmes contains the entire and original text of the famous “A Scandal in Bohemia.” This is a fully-updated app, which now features The Sherlock Holmes Stickers, adapted for the iOS 10.
In contrast to many other iClassics, which contain three or four short stories from the author, this app features one longer story, separated into three chapters. This means that it can be considered as a feature-length app, providing almost an hour of “immersive reading” entertainment. Moreover, the text is available in four languages, which can be changed at any moment of the story: English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
The text of this classic tale is enriched with artistic illustrations, animations, interactive elements, and original sound effects and music. All of this combined constitutes a new reading concept that iClassics Productions has been working towards: Literature 3.0 (Immersive Reading).
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle managed to create the most famous detective in fictional history, whose legendary status arguably transcends the fame of the writer himself. Set in grey and grimy London, and filled with fog and mystery, A Scandal in Bohemia is read like never before. Brought to life with imagery, movement, sound and interactivity, readers are plunged into the mind of one of the sharpest detectives ever invented as he discerns nuances most people overlook. Feel your way through the fog of old London, and walk alongside the most memorable creation in detective literature’s history.
A Scandal in Bohemia is the perfect story to be adapted for the Literature 3.0 format, allowing for total immersion and extensive interaction. Illustrated to an incredibly high and artistic standard by Jordi Solano, directed by David G. Fores, and brought to life by the animation team, this is an extremely high quality, sophisticated and artistic app.

“You’ll see what Sherlock and Watson both see – the details, their plans, even the mannerisms described in the book – and without much (if any) artistic embellishment whatsoever!! The makers of this specific app need to produce many, many more of Doyle’s famed stories, post haste!”
“The cleverest app I’ve encountered! I don’t know how I found this, but I’m happy I did. Really clever and an enjoyable experience. I’ll be buying more of the series.”
