The Shapeshifting Detective is a supernatural-noir murder mystery FMV game where you play as a detective who can shapeshift into other characters.
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.
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...

I love this mystery game!
If you love murder mysteries, detective games or indie games this one is a winner! The characters are interesting and fleshed out. Inventive use of video. It was very engaging, found myself having trouble putting it dow. The creators developed this fictional town and populated it with unique storylines. Great acting. Really like that it has three random killers so you can play it several times. Bravo! Looking forward to other Wales Interactive games!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this because I’m usually not into the interactive movie style games but this one stands out with an ever intriguing plot that had me hooked to my phone and finished it in a few hours . The acting wasn’t the greatest , but there were still a few of the cast that were believable . The premise is quite unique and I wished I could find more games like this where you’re interrogating, hunting for suspects and info to solve the crime . Well done 👍🏼
I’m amazed by the effort needed to make this game. High-quality acting, hours of content, branching options. The story was suspenseful and unpredictable. Sometimes the need to try all possible character combinations gets old, but this is forgivable. Works great on mobile devices. Well worth your time.
