Indie developer Silvernode Games have released their point-and-click comedy adventure, Nine Noir Lives, on PC. Presented as an ode to a classic genre, players will put on their trench coats and hit the streets to solve the case.
Taking on the role of P.I. Cuddles Nutterbutter and his trusty assistant Tabby Marshmallow, players conduction an investigation in the city of Meow Meow Furrington. Cuddles and Tabby will poke, talk, lick, and scratch their way through their toughest investigation to date.
A murder case is shaking up the fragile relationship between two powerful crime families; Montameeuw and Catulet. Players will jump into this investigation and interact with colorful hand-drawn scenes and dozens of fully-voiced characters. Over a hundred thousand words of fully-voiced dialogue is available from an all-star cast that includes Lucas Gilbertson (Megaman X), Carol-Anne Day (A Hat in Time) and SungWon Cho (Borderlands 3, God of War Ragnarok).
Adventure games like Day of the Tentacle and Broken Sword left a huge impression on me, and I wanted to pay tribute to the genre with my own unique contribution. Nine Noir Lives is a dream come true for me, and I can’t wait for people to experience it. I hope they grow to love Cuddles Nutterbutter and Tabby Marshmallow as much as we here at Silvernode do.William Kruger, Founder of Silvernode Games
The charming storyline features a unique and intriguing city. Inspiration for the game is taken from every cat ever and there are fewer cat puns than one would expect. Unlike other point-and-click games this one features a point-and-lick feature. Using Cuddles tongue, players can discover a whole new level of investigative fun. Only by finding the right clues and solving puzzles will help answer questions and bring closure to this case.
Nine Noir Lives is available on PC for Windows and Mac via Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store for $19.99/£17.50/€19.99. For more information follow @NineNoirLives on Twitter or visit nnlgame.com.
