Shapeshifting Detective Developers Announce Episodic FMV Spin-Off

The FMV genre is growing a little more with the upcoming release of Dark Nights with Poe and Munro.

Developer D’Avekki Studios, the team behind The Shapeshifting Detective and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, has announced its next release which will be a spin-off of The Shapeshifting Detective called Dark Nights with Poe and Munro.

This new instalment will have actors Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard reprise their roles as John ‘Poe’ Pope and Ellis Munro, the radio hosts from the town of August. The game will contain six episodes, each with a branching narrative. As this new title is standalone you do not need to have played The Shapeshifting Detective to play it.

Our reviewers both loved D’Avekki’s first two games, giving them both a score of 8/10 for their ingenious storytelling and mind bending mysteries. So fingers grossed the Dark Nights with Poe and Munro will continue the trend.

Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is intended for release later this year on PC and consoles. The studio also has a fourth game called Pocket Dreadfuls, planned for after the release of Dark Nights.

Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
