'Shadows Of Doubt' Comes to Steam Early Access Date In April - Trailer

Shadows Of Doubt is an open world detective sim where you discover a city of secrets and become a renowned private investigator in a unique crime-solving experience.

An open-world detective stealth game set in a fully simulated sci-fi noir city of crime and corruption. Think like a private investigator and take on jobs to earn cash on your path to catching a serial killer. If you don’t catch them - they will kill again…

Shadows Of Doubt is set in an alternate reality in the hyper-industrialized 1980s. Think like a detective and use a variety of gadgets as a private intelligence investigator, gathering evidence and making money by solving cases, finding and selling information and more.

Play your own way in a fully simulated world with hundreds of citizens. Discover, meet and tail individual citizens, each with their own name, job, apartment and daily routine, in unique, procedurally-generated cities. Each case has different culprits, clues and experiences for  you to test your investigative skills.

Explore anywhere in the city! Every nook of every trashy bar, every place of work, every seedy hotel room… This dystopia is your oyster. Break into apartments, rifle through secret documents or hack security systems - even a discarded receipt can be the key to cracking a case. Trace the receipt back to an individual location, scour CCTV footage and match the time up to the receipt to find out who it belonged to!

The entire world is fully simulated. Each citizen has an apartment, job, daily routine, favorite things to do, places to go, and people to interact with. They live out their lives independently, in a world that moves on with or without you— uncover this knowledge and use it to your advantage!

Become a private investigator in a truly unique detective experience. Think like a detective to solve the cases around you: check call histories, find passwords, read private emails, speak to persons of interest, watch CCTV footage and more to retrieve evidence and build your case. Store information on your investigation board and link evidence together as you piece together the full picture.

Discover fully-simulated cities of crime & corruption and become a renowned private investigator in Shadows of Doubt, launching April 24 on Steam Early Access, and will remain so for at least 6 months.

“The game is in a very advanced state of development and functionally complete with a full suite of features, cases, content and a complete Sandbox Mode, beyond what you may usually expect from an Early Access title. However, given the massive scope of the game and nature of its systems, we expect some bugs and unusual edge cases to be encountered for the first time at the launch of Early Access. Launching in Early Access allows us to identify any of these unusual issues and react to them, rather than have players discover them in what is considered to be a ‘final’ release.”

“The full version of Shadows of Doubt will include additional content and optimisations that will be introduced throughout Early Access. We are currently planning to add new content such as new and improved cases, new locations and new citizen interaction options, along with a more rounded and polished game experience.”

Key Features:

  • Become a private investigator and track down a serial killer in a fully-simulated sci-fi city. Think like a detective and use a variety of gadgets to gather evidence and solve cases in this truly unique detective experience.
  • Meet individual citizens, each with their own name, job, apartment and daily routine, in unique, procedurally-generated cities.
  • Take on new cases to earn cash, purchase new gadgets and equipment, and customise your apartment.
  • Gather evidence to build your case - scan fingerprints, check call histories, read private emails, watch CCTV, and find key pieces of evidence to gather information and accuse your suspect.
  • Play your own way - pick locks, break down doors, sabotage security systems and bribe citizens for information, or stick to the law and play by the book. There are multiple ways to approach each case.
  • Explore every room in every building, and talk to every citizen. Lose yourself in a detailed sci-fi noir world.

Shadows Of Doubt is coming to PC (Steam) in early 2023.
