More about Shadows of Doubt (from Steam):

A procedurally-generated sandbox stealth game with a whole city of secrets at your fingertips!

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.

    Josh is the last person I would want to have qualified immunity.

    This game has an incredible amount of things to do that make no sense for a detective, but absolutely perfect for Josh to cause mayhem

      I never even heard of this before but I’m amazed how detailed it is

    • Tantalus010 says:

      @12B It’s legit. The cities are tiny (the biggest city you can make is 5×4 blocks in size and has 700 residents), but it’s one of those rare cases where an EA game actually already delivers what it says on the store page. It’s definitely got some jank to it, but given how much the game simulates, I’m amazed it doesn’t have more jank.

      My favorite thing about it is how many options you have for finding out information. One of my earliest cases had me searching for a person and all I had was their phone number, their fingerprint, and their salary. Out of those three pieces of information, their fingerprint was the most useless: doing what Josh did (going through gov records one by one until you find the matching fingerprint) is doing it the stupid way. Instead, you just call their number. If they pick up, they’ll tell you their first name. That may or may not be enough to find them in the gov database right away. If not, you might be able to get them to tell you their last name. If they don’t answer at all, you can still trace the call you made using the call junction boxes in all the buildings to find the address you rang. From there, you break in, and you’ll always be able to find something in their apartment to tell you who lives there.

      ​@Tantalus010thats awesome

  4. Elizabeth says:

    I love how the mystery element is so intriguing that Josh can’t help but actually go solve the case instead of just creating mayhem and forgetting the plot

  5. Cliffrunnerboy says:

    Each time Josh reads a sponsored script I imagine the marketing rep from the company holding a gun to his head

    • SilverFoxeGames says:

      They only hold a gun to his head in fear of what josh is and can do

    • Obscure Wondering says:

      ​@SilverFoxeGames As if lead could stop the corporeal being in front of them

    • chemical says:

      @Obscure Wondering I don’t think corporeal means what you think it means

    • Hana1LuLu says:

      Meh I imagine its more like when you reward a parrot for a good trick, but instead of peanuts its more game keys or something of equally chaos granting nature. So they’re sitting there sliding things over or adding things to a group they send after a job well done

    • McGovern1981 says:

      Really though if the company cares about what they’re doing Josh is a great resource. He finds ways to screw everything up!

  6. Pablo Dávila says:

    Josh is the perfect “Stress Test” for the developers.

  7. MasterLuke says:

    With Josh lurking the streets, we might need something a little stronger then glass for windows

  8. That_Rotten_Guy says:

    Josh would make a great detective because he knows the ins-and-outs of being a monster

  9. Vermicule Flyworm says:

    Josh accidentally trapping himself in a coma seemed like poetic justice for all the games he’s violated

    • Hana1LuLu says:

      And yet, in purest Josh fashion, when he’s granted an escape he goes “nope I’m going to finish what I started” and finishes the coma.

  10. Ur local friendly Mr.Sandals says:

    That actually made me want to read a crime novel with a main character-detective beeing as chaotic as Josh is here
