Purrrlock Holmes? What's next John Catson?

Two small announcements from Asmodee International have arrived this week, the first of which is that they have partnered with IDW Games to translate Purrrlock Holmes: Furriarty's Trail.

Asmodee International will be publishing Stephan Sauer’s Purrrlock Holmes in Spanish, French, Italian and German worldwide. This will allow people from all over the world to play the game in their own language.

If you haven't heard of it, Purrrlock Holmes is a game featuring a cat version of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, who is trying to foil the schemes of a cat Moriarty. You play as an inspector, who is trying to help Purrrlock in his goal.

Jerry Bennington, VP of New Product Development, commented:

Purrrlock Holmes is such a fun game and we are happy to be able to work with Asmodee on this and have this game available for gamers all around the world. Jerry Bennington

The other bit of news is that Asmodee Digital are partnering with Playdeck to upgrade four of their existing digital titles, Ascension, Twilight Struggle, Summoner Wars, and Agricola.

These games were previously managed by Playdeck on iOS and Android, but now they are under the control of Asmodee Digital, so will hopefully be receiving updates and perhaps even expansions.

Ascension, Twilight Struggle and Summoner Wars can be downloaded on Google Play, and Agricola can be downloaded on iOS.
