“A Study in Scarlet” by Arthur Conan Doyle Inspiration behind Caravan of Saints

“A Study in Scarlet” is a detective novel by British author Arthur Conan Doyle written in 1886. It is the novel that mentions the characters of Holmes and Watson for the first time. In the second part “The Country of the Saints” the story flashes back to two pioneers John Ferrier and a little girl Lucy, who are saved by the Mormon Church led by Brigham Young – one of the most famous polygamists. After being saved, they are introduced to the cruel Mormon lifestyle of lies, murder, polygamy and massacre.

Exactly Doyle’s perspective of Mormonism and the real life events described in “A Study in Scarlet” are what inspire the story behind our game Caravan of Saints. The Mormon Church also known as the Latter-day Saints Church is thought to have committed murder, kidnapping and enslavement. All of which you can experience in the captivating visual novel Caravan of Saints where you make your own decisions and reap the consequences of them.

Go on a journey beyond the edge of civilization in a world of strategy, battles, hunting, murder, massacre, polygamy and more. Accomplish different achievements to unlock special hidden scenes. Immerse yourself in history and experience real life events guided by your own choices.
