A Behind the Scenes Look at Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter

Behind-the-scenes videos showing how Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter cutscenes are made.

Hello everyone!

It’s that time again for another official Frogwares blog post. Last time around, we’ve showcased some awesome Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter screens which were taken by our talented community (btw, keep them coming folks!). Today, I thought it would be nice to show you some of the things that we’ve done for Sherlock – a bit of a “behind-the-scenes” glimpse if you will.

I wanted to show you a bit of the process involved in making our in-game animated scenes, aka – cutscenes. Cutscenes are a great story-telling mechanism – they set the mood, show the personality of characters, help in developing the story, and they make the game a more engaging experience. However, they also take a bit of time to prepare.

To create each scene, it takes a lot of time and patience. At the same time though, it’s also a very fun and satisfying experience, especially when you see the results afterwards.

Each scene is made in an editor – a program that allows you to move objects, characters, and lights. You can also choose your camera angles, positions, distance, and record a scene in the way you have set out in your mind.

A single scene can take up to a few weeks of work, and seeing it finally in the game is one of the biggest buzzes you can ever get – it’s like watching your little baby all grown up 😉
