The new immersive sandbox detective sim Shadows of Doubt is now available on Steam Early Access. This game allows players to become a private detective solving robberies and murder cases. There's currently a 10% off introductory price until May 2.

For the early access version, players can enjoy "The Dead of Night," a specially crafted case which introduces players to the game. There's also a Sandbox Mode that features an endless number of cases for players to investigate and civilians to meet. A wide range of equipment is available and procedurally-generated cities to explore.

In a statement, ColePowered Games Founder and Director Cole Jefferies shared that he's excited to finally invite players to the game world. He revealed that this game has been his dream and it's an incredible feeling to finally see it in the hands of players. He went on to say that he is looking forward to more content as they work to the game's full release.
