The Shapeshifting Detective Review

8.3 Total Score
Very Good

The Shapeshifting Detective is a shining light in immersive story-telling. The shapeshifting mechanic and how it is integrated into the story really sets it apart. You are a detective being hired to discover the truth behind the murder of a young woman named Dorota Shaw. The chief suspects a tarot reader who predicted the murder before it happened and expects you to find evidence for his claim. The thing is - you're a shapeshifter and the tarot readers in town seem to be hunting down someone like you. Caught between the legend of the town and the truth behind what you are, you'll need to stay objective to get the answers you need. The game features more than 1600 full HD video responses, a simple questioning interface with unique ‘delete’ mechanic, and a randomly chosen murderer at the start of the game. Developed by the World Record-breaking makers of "The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker". As you explore the town of August, you'll be treated to a streaming radio broadcast of specially selected dark fiction read out by some of our favourite content creators...Alluring characters and enthralling narrative that dances with supernatural themes. A great FMV title to enjoy multiple times over and over. By changing the murderer each time I would restart the game I felt like I was playing a game of Clue.
