Noir-influenced detective RPG 'Pixel Noir' is out now

By - | Views: 29,087

Noir-influenced detective mystery RPG? Sounds thoroughly interesting! Pixel Noir has now left Early Access.

Another that was funded on Kickstarter where the developer pulled in $61,212 back in 2015. It took a while to get here, and sadly they lost one of their artists, Shane Stevens, to cancer back in 2020 so this was the last project Stevens worked on which Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye Games mentioned on X (formerly Twitter).

More about the game: Pixel Noir is a hard-boiled detective RPG set inside a sprawling metropolis, where gangs roam free and coffee cures all. Uncover the truth--recover your sanity as you unravel Pinnacle City’s darkest secrets.

Something happened that night in the hospital, something that cost you your career as a police detective, your sanity, and the life of your partner. Ten years later, you have a chance to set things right. Are the hallucinations that haunt you a clue to what happened that fateful night?
