Independent developer Silvernode Games is all about feline sleuthing–and we can’t wait. Their comedy-noir “point-and-lick” adventure game, Nine Noir Lives, will soon be dropping into PC via Steam and GOG–feet first.
Cat lovers and fur parent gamers alike will be treated to a film noir, detective story that follows Cuddles Nutterbutter as he unravels the feline mysteries that litter the mysterious streets of Meow Meow Furrington–a beautiful, hand-drawn city that’s absolutely purr-ty.
The story, themes, and tone of Nine Noir Lives draws its inspiration from classic film noir and absurdist comedy–with a smidge of Shakespeare. Thanks to this clash–yet perfect combination of these two genres, Silvernode Games introduces a unique, comedic adventure grounded by more serious subject matter
At the end of the day, no matter how hard-boiled you are as a detective, you’re still a cat. Poke, talk, and lick your way through a murder case that threatens a cold, yet cordial relationship between the Montameeuw and Catulet crime families–a bit on the nose, but cute nonetheless. Players will interact with dozens of fully-voiced characters, explore beautiful hand-drawn scenes, and solve a variety of puzzles to solve this gritty mystery in an otherwise fluffy and warm town.
