Sherlock Holmes - “Do YOU have feelings for John?”
Undoubtedly, the world’s greatest detective with exceptional logic. He used to only be interested in strange cases until he met you, and he’ll notice he has feelings towards you unlike any he’s ever felt before. But his best friend John H Watson has the same feelings toward you too! Where will that love triangle lead you?

John H Watson - “I promise that I’ll always strive to be someone who’s good enough for you, someone who deserves you. So...will you marry me?”
The best friend of Sherlock and another genius. He’s smart, gentle, and perfect - what’s the reason behind him proposing to you on the very day you meet? And what will you do when Sherlock tells you that you’re the only one that he could open his traumatized heart to?

James Moriarty - “By the time this journey is over, your life will have changed COMPLETELY.”
The Napoleon of the backstreets of London, and the biggest rival of Sherlock Holmes. Coming from a noble family and the way of the law, he plans a stage aboard the gorgeous Reichenbach Express for you. He’s never the one to hide his affection for you...but at the same time holds a horrifying secret.

Enjoyed the earlier ones


I’m disappointed that the last two stories, ones I was looking forward to playing, have been Vs with Sherlock. If I wanted to play a 3rd or 4th season of Sherlock, I would have just played his story. I wanted to play Sebastian, ended up having to play around with both. The fact that it’s the exact same disgusting dance with Jack’s story is annoying. It’s saving me gems though, since ALL the CG’s are with Sherlock. Don’t play those two stories if you are expecting the same kind of development as the previous stories. Just constantly Sherlock butting in and taking all the limelight. Mycroft’s story was good and so was John’s.

Thought I wouldn’t like it, but I love it.


When I started playing, Honestly, I find it to be slightly boring and long. As i get deeper into the story, the conversation and the pop quiz that the game provides actually caught my attention very much and not sooner after that, i find myself constantly going back to the game to play and fall in love with the characters. The MC is also not the childish and innocent type which makes the game really much less boring! I enjoyed it very much. Thank you, solmare!

Favorite One


Out of all the Shall We Date games, this is my favorite. I might be biased with my avid love of Sherlock Holmes in general--the essence of which the game beautifully captures--but more than that, the plots are exciting, the screenplay is engaging, and the characters, while remaining faithful to their origins, each bring about their own breath of fresh air. It's also a relief to have a smart and rational lead. She's not the only one (Love Tangled also does a great job.), but as far as stereotypes go, Sherlock's leading lady takes the cake.
