With some lovely pixel art, Pixel Noir looks like one not to be missed. The story sounds pretty good too! Originally a rookie in the police, one mission went horribly wrong resulting in a hospital burning to the ground and your partner being killed. Now you're a private eye, just trying to get by while you're haunted by all sorts of questions and you need answers. A chance to clear your name will come along but it seems lots of things happen along the way.
As a reminder, it wasn't originally going to support Linux but Linux users were apparently quite vocal about wanting it, so hopefully plenty of Linux gamers take a look.
