Do you ever get tired of being you? Well, in The Shapeshifting Detective you get to play the protagonist as well as nine of the game’s other characters!

You’re a detective (duh) who’s investigating a murder. The three prime suspects are all tarot card readers. You’ll have to question them, but they may be reluctant to talk to you. This is where your shapeshifting abilities will come in handy.

The game features a simple questioning interface and 1600+ HD video responses. You can delete questions you don’t want to ask.

You’ll also find a branching storyline and an in-game radio station that features short works of dark fiction. At the beginning of each game, a murderer will be chosen at random.

The Shapeshifting Detective will be released November 6th on Windows, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It can be pre-ordered at a 20% discount on Steam.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals and hardware to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
