What Does the 3 Dots Symbol Above Evidence Mean in Sherlock Holmes the Awakened

If you’ve played previous “modern” Sherlock Holmes games, you know that the detective work is severely reduced in the sense that there’s no space for mistakes. Eventually, you will gather evidence and do what must be done in order to get answers to the questions. However, you will still need to get used to the basic gameplay mechanics. One of the very first things you need to learn is how to work with the evidence you collect. There are several types of evidence: observations, items, documents, testimonies, etc.

For some of them, you don’t need to do anything. For others, you will need to perform additional actions. This is in order to gather more information. However, the game makes this easier for you by saying what kind of action you need to take with a set piece of evidence. Hence, once you learn these symbols, you will always know what to do. So, what to do with the items with the 3 Dots “dialogue bubble” symbol above them?

As you might have guessed, it’s about talking to someone. When an item in your evidence tab has the 3 Dots symbol above it, it means that you need to talk with someone to learn more about it. If a person in your evidence has this symbol, this means that you can talk with that person to learn new information. And that’s about it. That’s all you need to know about this symbol.
