Shadows of Doubt is a procedural detective game. The main thread about it is over here.
The idea with this thread is to supply a seed that qt3 players all can play to see whether we can compare notes. support each other’s investigations, etc. @anonymgeist and I thought it might be fun to try.
To try it out, I created the city Qt3 District, the seed for which is below. Check it out!
I started out at night, on a dark street, no job, no apartment. After wandering for a bit, I found my way into a bar and accepted a job to investigate a theft. The job said to call a phone number, so I did. “Answer the pay phone on Castro Street at 12:42 for details.”
Where the hell is Castro Street?!!? I wandered around a bit, then got a notice that the phone was ringing. That’s when I noticed the little hand icon, faint in the distance, showing me where the phone was. I sprinted over there and missed the call.
One of the map generation options was “procedural murders,” which I selected. So maybe that’s an option? My understanding is that the initial game state will be the same for everybody who uses the seed, but they may diverge depending on what we do?
Would you consider posting more details as a spoiler, perhaps? Even if the one you posted (which I haven’t check yet) varies, it’d be interesting to see what other differences and similarities show up.
