Reviews

“It is a genuinely entertaining adventure for fans of private eye mysteries, and a solid debut for a promising developer...”
3.5/5 – Adventure Gamers

“Face Noir does an excellent job at immersing you in the game world. There are interactive close up scenes which let you feel more involved in the action … the detailed backgrounds are lovely. The grimness of each scene helps you feel like you are there, and the soundtrack is worthy of any noir film.”
Jay Is Games

“Face Noir is able to deliver on several fronts. Mad Orange was dedicated in providing an unique story while continually driving plot twists to further intrigue the player. Also in their effort they illustrated beautiful scenery to allow an appreciating experience while investigating objects”
7.5/10 – Capsule Computers

Film Noir inspired Adventure Game.

Graphics are simple. Soundtrack is great, Voice Acting is good. The Interface is very primitive (tip: highlighting is F1). Writing is pretty good. Characters are ... interesting: lets just say that Characters are written to be "period appropriate". Puzzles aren't exactly self obvious (I guess that is a good thing) - and could be accused of "pixel hunt".

This one is for Adventure Game veterans and Film Noir fans... Me, otherwise avoid.

Awesome adventure.It's one of the best point and click adventures I've played since years. Logical puzzles and interesting setting. Based on america's great depression during the 30's. It 's worth it to give it a try ;) 8,5/10

A classic Point & Click adventure game, taking plqce in the 30s in New York.
You play what I would qualify as the archetype of the Private Ivestigator; long trench coat, drinking issues, a tendency for cynisim, ex cop who has been kick off the force... Nothing really new here... And that's actually a good think.
The game isn't particularilly beautiful, but the direction match the ambiance film noir wanted here. The story is suffisantly intriging to make you want to go forward, and the puzzles are not too challenging, without being too easy neither. It will take you around 9-10 hours to see the end.

And overall pretty enjoyable game for P&C fans who like film noir that I will recommend.
7/10.

Nice old-school style point and click. If you like Noir and Detective stories then you can't go wrong. Puzzles can be a bit frustrating since it's easy to simply not notice the one tiny object that let's you solve it. But once you've found all the clickables then the puzzles usually make sense.

Two tips: double click when the arrow is red to jump to the next area without having to watch him walk. And Press F1 for highlights (or click the ? button in the inventory.)

Edit: It's a two part story... Don't expect full resolution ontil the sequel comes out.

Playing Face Noir is like looking back in time to the first golden age of adventures. Face Noir refuses to hold your hand through its puzzles, no matter how insanely obscure some combinations of items might seem. It places names and numbers in the environment, but relies on the players to remember these facts or write them down in order to progress. It includes stealth sections in the same haphazard way that early FPS games handled platforming. For some, this will be a familiar and welcome return to the past, but most anyone who didn’t grow up combining items and pixel hunting will find nothing but frustration here.
