Shadows over Manston (formerly named "The Manifest") is an adult-themed game made in Ren'Py following the life of a State Trooper, re-assigned to the local Police Department as the City of Manston is hit by an unprecedented crime wave.

You'll be able to decide what paths to follow, if you want to spend time with your wife and step-daughter, focus on assisting the Police Department at the local campus, or hunt down the villains that injured your partner, along with romancing the different girls you find attractive along the way.

Choices matter, and you'll have completely different game-experiences depending on what you choose to do!

Latest Update v2.2, released to the public on the 13th November 2020.

I just found this game and had to download it for future updates. I’m 100% in love here and can’t wait for an update hopefully in 2023. More donations when the time comes!! I have you bookmarked. 

I'm excited to see more, although kinda sad you probably won't be updating it until like at least mid-2023 with the schedule for Defending Lydia Collier


Just finish this game, it's been a fun ride. I kinda feel bad for Jane, but also can't decide between the other girls and holy smokes, there are so many girls with personalities I like. I didn't realize it's the same team that created defending lydia.


Shadows over Manston will be resumed and completed after Defending Lydia Collier is completed and the final content update (v.0.16) is released.

Will you continue the development of the game or not?


Yes, however this will not be until Defending Lydia Collier is complete and that game has approximately 6 major updates remaining.


Okay, thank you very much for responding.

Is there any walkthrough of sorts, it’s a little confusing with all the optional scenes and I can’t seem to understand which choices will give me the most scenes or are the ‘correct’ choices


is the MC male ? I would love to lay a game with a female cop.. but male cops bore me  lol

MC is Male
