Interactive Sherlock game launches in Liverpool

A new challenge awaits for recruits in Liverpool looking to join ‘The Network’.

THE makers of London based Sherlock: The Official Live Game are bringing their interactive outdoor experience to cities around the UK and have just launched in Liverpool.

The outdoor version of the Sherlock Escape experience first launched in West London in 2020. Following its success, the game has now launched in Liverpool with a walking route that features landmarks around the city, alongside a series of clues, conundrums, and codes that need to be cracked in this original Sherlock-inspired outdoor detective challenge.

Participants will follow in the footsteps of the great detective as teams of 2-6 take part in an outdoor digital mission with a twist. Mixing gameplay with story, Sherlock: The Official Outdoor Game is self-hosted and uses interactive narrative. Teams will have to unravel the plot whilst being guided by Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft, as he sends requests for information, asks for assistance with tasks and guides groups as they travel by foot across Liverpool.  

Teams will be digitally assisted along their physical journey by animated videos, voicemail and text messaging.

To celebrate the launch, there will be a competition with free tickets up for grabs so keep an eye on their Instagram page @221b for the chance to win!
