STORY

Weird things happen in the small town of August… Talking paintings create wishes. Jilted lovers return from the dead looking for everlasting closure. People turn into trees. But with local radio hosts John ‘Poe’ Pope and Ellis Munro investigating, things are only going to get weirder…

Guide Poe and Munro through six episodes of supernatural adventures. You choose where they go and what they do, as you help them uncover August’s strange residents and hidden secrets. Your choices determine what happens to them and those around them, but can you keep Poe and Munro together… and alive?

After making their first appearance in The Shapeshifting Detective (TSD), Poe and Munro are returning in their own standalone spin-off prequel, with different gameplay and all new stories.
