Adventure game Nine Noir Lives seems to let you lick everything

By - | Views: 13,650

Nine Noir Lives is an upcoming point and click adventure game that follows feline private investigator Cuddles Nutterbutter. A new brief trailer is out, showing off a very important game mechanic.

Licking. Yes, you are a cat after all and who knows — licking something might give you an all important clue.

Shown off yesterday for International Cat Day, a new short teaser trailer showed a bit more of the gameplay and the lick mechanic. A bowl of snacks? Cuddles licks it. A sentient computer? Cuddles licks that too. Another cat dressed as a milk carton? I think you get the idea.

Inspired by the likes of Grim Fandango and Broken Sword along with the works of classic film noir from Shakespeare, and Taika Waititi the two-person team at Silvernode Games are working hard to create a point-and-click adventure game that pays tribute to the past while curling up in its own unique niche.

Game Features:

  • Brought Up on Feline-y Charges: A charming comedy-noir storyline set in the unique and intriguing city of Meow Meow Furrington, inspired by every cat ever and with fewer cat puns than you might expurrct.
  • A Point-and-Lick Adventure: Discover a whole new dimension to everything in the game by using Cuddles’ tongue. Lick first, and ask questions later. Questions like "what did you expect that to taste like, Cuddles?"
  • S’more Cats Equals S’more Fun: Experience the city from two very different perspectives as you switch between Cuddles and his trusty assistant, Tabby Marshmallow.
  • Purrfect Voice Acting: Laugh and learn about the world of Furth with over a hundred thousand words of fully-voiced dialogue performed by an all-star cast including Lucas Gilbertson (Megaman X), Carol-Anne Day (A Hat in Time) and SungWon Cho (Borderlands 3, God of War Ragnarok).

You can follow along on GOG and Steam. It releases on September 7th and there's a demo available right now.

"the works of classic film noir from Shakespeare"? I wasn't aware the bard produced any films.
