What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Pixel Noir team is all about transparency and including our fans in development. We started the process of collaborating with fans through our successful 2015 Kickstarter campaign. Steam Early Access gives us a great opportunity to continue to work with fans to gather additional feedback before we polish up and finalize the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately ~9 months (subject to change).”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version contains the first half or the game (chapters 1-4). In the full game we plan to include more polish, more areas to explore, more quests, and most importantly, the second half of the story!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are currently building out the silver version of the game, part of which will be provided for Early Access. The current, Early Access version includes the main story, sidequests, and several minigames for Chapters 1-4.

For more information on progress, please visit our online roadmap!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we plan to raise the price after leaving Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We would love to get an early peek of what people think of the game--and any last-minute ideas that we can work into our final development sprints to polish up Pixel Noir. We want to make the best game we can possibly within our means!”

Patch v.179

Hi everybody,

This is our first patch since the EA public release this past weekend. We fixed a bunch of open bugs so that things play smoother:

What's New
  • Fixed various spelling issues
  • Fixed problems in the beginning of Chapter 2
  • Fixed bribe talent freezing the game in some instances
  • Fixed running from certain fights freezing the game
  • Fixed NPC's missing upon saving / loading
  • Fixed various layering / collider issues
  • Fixed meeting Woof at the docks freezing game in some instances
  • Fixed White Tigers not showing up in the Junkyard after second alleyway fight in Chapter 3
  • Fixed various bugs with skills
  • Fixed missing dialog keys
  • Fixed issues around how 'Game Over' is handled
  • Fixed clipping through vehicles
  • Fixed Spanish translation rough spots (places where there is still English text)


Known Issues:
  • FPS issues in the Casino
  • In rare cases Spanish translation may be missing dialog only displaying their dialog keys (IE: SearchTent_Detective_2) OR certain text may not be translated properly and still show up in English
  • The mini map may become inaccurate if you go into tight corners in exterior areas--this problem usually fixes itself by changing area environments

Thanks again to all for the hype, bug finding, and all the great discussions and reviews/curation! Happy sleuthing, detectives!

About This Game

STORY:


Living on the streets of a dump like Pinnacle City, there’s only two things to keep you going: A pack of cigarettes and the feeling that there’s more than this.



There was something rotten in that rundown place. You were in over your head, but you were too proud to admit it. It was your pride that killed your partner. With the hospital burned to a crisp and nothing to exonerate you, they threw you in jail.

For ten years you were haunted by unanswered questions and unspeakable horror, frightened by what you saw, what you did - and what you could still do. Now you’re scraping by as a private eye, running a business out of a crappy apartment. But a chance comes along to clear your name once and for all. With your sanity at stake, how can you afford not to take it?



Pixel Noir is a turn-based RPG set against a film noir backdrop.

GAME FEATURES:


  • Solve a variety of mysteries as Pinnacle City’s cheapest Private Eye! From missing pets to murder investigations, your detective skills will earn you either fortune or face punches.
  • Fight enemies in turn-based combat. Unleash devastating combo attacks by teaming up with other heroes in your team!
  • Explore Pinnacle City-- a wretched hive of scum and villainy harboring black market trade & hawked by colorful characters.
  • Use your investigation mode to reveal clues and over time unearth new secrets and storylines!
