Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is a detective game created by Frogwares. It is the direct continuation of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments - another game made by the same studio and is the eighth part of a series.
Five cases are present in the game. These cases are detective stories, that are linked with each other and continue the stories of the previous Sherlock Holmes games. The game follows Sherlock Holmes and his companion, Doctor Watson, and their daily lives solving the mysterious crimes.
There are five different, yet interconnected, criminal cases are available for the players to investigate and solve. Some of these cases continue the story of the previous games.
The game's gameplay is mostly the same as the same as the previous game, Crimes & Punishments. The game takes the players at the crime scenes, where one examines it, finds clues while using several helping items, such as a magnifying glass, talks to witnesses and suspects, interrogates other characters and interacts with items. There is a mini-game which resembles Holmes' deductive method, which helps the players make an assumption.
The players can now inspect any character they meet in-game and analyze their look. This is used to create a psychological portrait of the encountered character.
