Following the success of the cat-themed video game Stray this summer, another cat-inspired adventure game is making players purr with excitement: Nine Noir Lives.
Designed in the 1980’s game style, Nine Noir Lives offers a cast of charming feline characters and a vintage style that should make whiskers fanatics happy. The game is studio Silvernode Games’ latest release.
The popularity of the post-apocalyptic cat adventure Stray proved that gamers needed more cats in their lives.
The video game Nine Noir Lives satisfies that craving by following a cat detective who becomes involved in a terrible murder case.
Silvernode Games’ upcoming game will put a humorous take on the noir genre and feature a world overrun by cats. Cuddles Nutterbutter, a fierce cat detective on a case, is the game’s protagonist.
After agreeing to take on a last-minute case for the Chief of Police, Cuddles is in over his head. The audacious kitty must investigate an incident threatening to split the Montameeuw and Catulet families apart.
In the cats’ city of Meow Meow Furrington, the feline investigator must question prospective suspects while caught between two crime families with dark backgrounds.
Surprisingly, the furry detective has his trademark investigation technique. To find clues, he needs to lick objects with his tongue. Very on brand for a cat!
Players must help Cuddles and his sidekick Tabby Marshmallow before another crime is committed.
While passing through gorgeous settings, the team will interact with non-playable characters who might help them in their mission.
On International Cat Day, a brand-new trailer was released, showcasing the hero’s licking tactics.
Gamers await Nine Noir Lives
According to Technowize, Nine Noir Lives is set for release this fall on September 7th, 2022. After that, it will be available on various major gaming platforms.
However, before the launch, players can download the free Nine Noir Lives Demo to gear up and get ready for the game.
The snippet gives a taste of the investigation-based gameplay that Cuddles Nutterbutter can undertake.
Twenty-five distinct voiced characters, the bustling city of Meow Meow Furrington, and many mysteries await players.
At this time, Nine Noir Lives is only available on PC, there has been no announcement of other console releases so far.
If the current trend of video games featuring cats is any indicator, more game developers will likely be creating more feline-inspired games!
