The Shapeshifting Detective

Following up on The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, Wales Interactive and D’Avekki Studios have announced The Shapeshifting Detective. This supernatural-noir murder mystery FMV game will have you playing as a detective who can shapeshift into other characters to find out who killed Dorota Shaw.

We have this overview and trailer for The Shapeshifting Detective:

Dorota Shaw is dead. And the prime suspects are three tarot readers with the uncanny ability to predict murder – or commit it. It’s your job to find out what else they know – but they won’t reveal their dark secrets to just anyone… Luckily, you can be anyone you want to be. Even the next victim.

You play as a detective who can shapeshift into other characters, allowing you to unlock secret conversations and private encounters. Featuring more than 1600 full HD video responses, a randomly chosen murderer and guest starring Rupert Booth, Anarosa De Eizaguirre Butler (Contradiction) and Aislinn De’Ath (The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker).

– 1600+ full HD FMV videos.
