Noir Syndrome

Hmm... this is an interesting idea - a procedurally-generated murder mystery game!


Noir Syndrome is a procedurally generated Detective Murder-Mystery with a new story every time! Featuring slick pixel art animations and a jazzy soundtrack, the player is thrown right in to a highly stylized vision of film noir. Visit locations, interrogate suspects, search for clues, and eventually solve the case before the killer escapes - or you wind up dead yourself.
Features:
  • Procedural generation: Murder mystery scenarios with a new culprit and clues each time, every play-through is unique. 
  • Permanent choices: NPCs, interactions, death, and a slew of other features will all persist until a new game is started. Every action counts! 
  • Notebook: Collect vital clues in the detective's notebook to help narrow down suspects and solve the case. 
  • Investigation: Interact with and examine numerous objects and characters in a number of environments in the search for more information on the killer. 
  • Countdown: Given a set number of days to solve the mystery, each area visited will decrement the time left, adding to the urgency of every case. 
  • Freedom of choice: Attempt to solve the case, or live out your remaining time doing as you please - be it fighting the law, going after gang members, or just seeing the city. 
  • Gunplay: Combat is generally to be avoided as a single bullet will take down the player. However, when necessary, the revolver is always available for use. 
  • Badges: Complete a variety of challenges to earn unique badges which directly influence future playthroughs. 
  • Statistics and Scores: Statistics and high scores for a wide variety of topics will persist through every game.

Platforms:
The game will be available for PC, Mac, Linux, and Android upon release.
