Reviews

“For those who love language, PataNoir is like a breath of fresh air...a reminder of the beauty of a complex sentence and the power of carefully chosen words.”
JustAdventure

“PataNoir is strange, unusual, at times frustrating, but creates an amazing surreal landscape in such a short time.”
OPNoobs

“...a nigh on unmissable adventure that's simultaneously a perfect entry to the world of text-based gaming and refreshingly different to satisfy the most hardened of genre veterans.”

About This Game

Description
"The Baron's daughter is missing, and you are the man to find her. No problem. With your inexhaustible arsenal of hard-boiled similes, there is nothing you can't handle."

PataNoir is a homage to the classic stories of hard-boiled private investigators with a knack for describing everything with complex similes and metaphors. In PataNoir, you solve problems by manipulating the hard-boiled metaphors used by the main character to make sense of the world in which he lives.

The game is an old-school text adventure, in which you type commands to perform actions.

Features
  • An interactive noir mystery to experience and solve
  • Innovative interactive fiction gameplay in which the metaphors you live by become tools to solve the mystery
  • Simulated book interface
  • Atmospheric illustrations by Lauri Ahonen and Tom Siddell
  • Original theme song by postmodern rock musician William Steffey

System Requirements
