About This Game

Thief’s Shelter weaves together fictional and real-world elements, in a society where the strong feast upon the weak and drama permeates the entirety of the universe. Meanwhile, demonic entities scheme in the shadows, their intentions veiled in mystery.

The year is 1965. Corruption within the English police force, along with the rampant activity of street gangs constantly disrupts the entire nation. The Red Order, once renowned as an anti-crime organisation dating back centuries, now prospers in England as the dominant provider of health products. However, beneath this façade lies a sinister secret.

After his relocation to Birmingham, Detective James is summoned to aid the investigation of a curious homicide on Highburn Street. Despite the impact of his artificial dementia, and being haunted by a demon, James dives deep into an investigation that ultimately makes his condition deteriorate.

As James' investigative abilities wane, your own skills take centre stage. In a haunting adventure steeped in mystery, Thief's Shelter invites you to overcome James' delusions and carve your own path to the truth. Inquire relentlessly, remain alert and guide James through this gruelling journey- all in an ultra-modernized point-and-click adventure through a lush, ever-changing 3D environment.


Thief's Shelter is about searching for answers beyond the chaotic nature of James' discretion.

  • Thief's Shelter features a concrete, albeit non-intrusive narrative. Define your experience at your own pace, with certain events being entirely optional. VHS Tapes found scattered throughout the game provide insight to hidden lore, while James documents his experiences and thoughts in an organized Memoir- which you can review at your leisure- to combat the symptoms of memory loss.

  • James' investigation sees him faced with intricate, expansive puzzles of considerable complexity. With the acquisition of certain tools as the game progresses, seemingly ordinary areas reveal their true secrets. Clues crucial to the investigation are recorded in your Investigation Notes, which you can use alongside your wits on your journey to the truth. Decipher cryptic riddles, uncover hidden passwords, and find missing key items, all in one comprehensive challenge that tests both your investigative skills and your ability to combine various mechanics.

  • Embark on an ever-evolving journey where excitement never fades. Thief's Shelter's experience unfolds throughout multiple 3D environments- each one full of life and vastly different from the other. Whether through James' actions or through the passage of time, the world around you constantly changes, with little events happening at every turn- a layer of complexity that many titles of the genre lack.

    Traditional click-to-move navigation systems can sometimes become tedious as players progress through the game. In response, we have implemented both a walking and sprinting function, giving you control over the pace of your character's movement. To further enhance the feel of navigation, we have introduced a dynamic waypoint system. As you advance in the game, waypoints irrelevant to the current game state are automatically removed from view. This not only maintains visual clarity but also ensures that new waypoints are activated only when it aligns with the narrative's progression, effectively reducing traversal times while preserving the exhilarating sense of exploration and discovery that the game offers.

    Thief's Shelter features a fully voiced cast, with the delivery of each character keeping you immersed and evoking a vast range of emotions throughout your journey.

    In response to fans of the genre, Thief's Shelter comes with various QoL changes to deliver a stress-free experience.

  • Responsiveness from start to finish. All features have been brought to modern standards to eliminate wait times between interactions and keep a smooth flow throughout the experience.
  • Getting stuck in a game is not fun. The Objective Log along with James' dynamic hints and UI widgets help you to always stay on track, even when you resume play after a long pause.
  • No more nonsensical puzzles or pixel-hunting. Puzzles are carefully built to respect your intuition, while their difficulty comes from their intricate design- instead of the solution being slyly hidden between pixels.
  • You are no longer bound to your mouse. Mouse and Keyboard or Controller, the game elegantly handles both playstyles and allows you to relax while you enjoy the experience.

    Thief's Shelter allows you to customize your experience however you see fit through various accessibility options.

  • Highlights on Interactable Objects, increasing visibility and accommodating a more casual experience.
  • Camera Movement reduction options for players struggling with motion sickness.
  • UI Visibility options for virtual photographers.
  • Intuitive and user-friendly control scheme across devices, including MKB and Controllers.
  • Full Controller Support with extensive, but optional use of the rumble feature.
  • Full Upscaler Support, featuring both FSR 3 and DLSS.
  • A vast array of graphical options to tune the look and performance of the game.
  • Rich Audio support, featuring stereo, surround and many more speaker types, along with English subtitles.
