It’s worth it | ‘Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter’ is coming to Nintendo Switch next month
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, eighth in the series of video games based on the character of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is a unique adventure game that combines exploration, investigation and action for a breathtaking and fantastic gaming experience. You play as the master detective himself, thrust unwillingly into a fantasy adventure brimming with intense action sequences for a more immersive interactive experience than ever before. The mysteries follow one another, the indices accumulate, the tracks cross, the hypotheses contradict each other… Will you be able to guide Sherlock Holmes towards the incredible final revelation?
With many suspects in each investigation, every choice you make could lead the story in unexpected, even deadly directions.
“What brought young Katelyn to 221B Baker Street? Could she have discovered the dark truth about her family? Who is the charming seer who moved into 221C? Is there room for occult seances and rituals in the bastion of logic and rationalism? For the first time in his prestigious career, the most illustrious detective must fight not to reveal a secret, but to keep one…

Despite being embroiled in a horrific war, the majority of the Ukraine-based team handled this through external partners and a handful of remote employees. They now aim to adapt to the situation and do what they can to keep the studio semi-functional and afloat.
“Simply put, we need to keep the studio alive and running to the best of our abilities now more than ever. Nobody on the team is supposed to work, only those who can and want to. Some team members have become full-time volunteers in humanitarian efforts across the country. Others have joined the Defense Forces. The rest are in various safer locations overseas or throughout the country and have made themselves available for work remotely. And we’re still paying all those people on the team For those who fight or volunteer, every one of their places on the team will be waiting for them when the war is over. But essentially, it’s thanks to a collection of staff who have fled Ukraine to neighboring EU countries and those who have moved to safer areas that make Frogwares work right now. We are an independent studio with no external funding, neither investor nor parent company that keeps us afloat. It is therefore up to us alone and thanks to the support of our players who want to play our games that will keep this studio alive. And as this war drags on further and further, we and people across Ukraine find that even if they are not directly involved in the fighting, they must somehow advance the things. So when it’s all over and it’s time to rebuild and restart, we won’t be starting from scratch. – Wael Amr, CEO, Frogwares.
