What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Coffee Noir was initially designed as a serious game for educational/training purposes and targeted mainly at schools and companies. However, due to many positive feedback gained from regular gamers and several prizes received at gaming fairs and exhibition, we decided to expand our idea and offer it as product focused on intelligent entertainment and directed at gamers. The previous, web-based version of Coffee Noir limited the possibilities of further development of the game and also made it difficult to market as a stand-alone, video game product. Entering Steam would resolve these problems and facilitate the process of reaching gamers interested in tycoon and economic strategy video games. The Steam version, developed in Unity Engine will be equipped with improved visuals, animations, extended storyline and investigation plot, less educational content and more detective-style game events in comparison with the original, browser-based version. It will take not only time and money to implement these changes, but it’s also crucial for us to head into the right direction with all the improvements. That is why we need to hear your feedback and suggestions - the Early Access version gives us this opportunity to enhance the game experience in a way which would satisfy you, gamers, in the most possible way. Let’s make Coffee Noir Business Detective Game a blockbuster game together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We cannot provide an exact date at this moment, but we are aiming at leaving Early Access no later than Q3 of 2019.”

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

“The full version of the game will contain:
  • signature investigation module - mini-game within investigation board,
  • interactive dialogues during storyline cutscenes,
  • additional comic book style graphics incorporated into the gameplay,
  • professional voice overs for every dialogue,
  • further UI improvements,
  • more in-game animations,
  • more languages (Spanish, German, French, Russian)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It’s a fully functioning alpha version with complete storyline and mechanics. It takes about 6 hours to complete the storyline. The current game has a pack of new visuals, voice overs, new investigation mechanics and UI improvements in comparison with its online, educational predecessor. However there is still a bunch of work to do in terms of visuals and mechanics to provide the complete, enjoyable gaming experience.”

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

“Yes. One of the advantages of participating in Coffee Noir's Early Access is getting the game at a lower price.”

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

“We want community to be a crucial part of our business tycoon game development. We will keep in touch via Steam community forums, devblog, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, as well as by face-to-face talks during gaming fairs.”

About This Game


Coffee Noir is a 2D tycoon game focused on coffee business management, contract negotiations, production and sales, along with an intriguing detective storyline in a film noir artstyle.

It’s 2021 in an alternate future - discover the mysterious world of Neo-London as Arthur Oliver - an experienced private detective. He unexpectedly becomes a part of London's dreadful puzzle and must find out why Richard Kersey - a local coffee market businessman - disappeared without a trace. The worried family believes that one of Richard’s business partners is to blame. For the first time in his career, the detective will have to work undercover as a businessman...

Will you be able to manage a successful coffee business and solve the criminal case of Richard Kersey’s disappearance at the same time?

Business management: manage your team, handle production, invest in promotion and don’t let your coffee business go bankrupt - you have to plan your strategy carefully as you deal with limited resources!

Deep negotiations: successfully negotiate to win good deals and gain the trust of your business partners to get the clues and solve the criminal mystery.

Realistic economic strategy: the game was developed with the support of professional economists and academics to provide you with a thorough business simulation experience.

Intriguing crime: deeply immerse yourself in the story of climatic Neo-London and its unusual criminal case thanks to engaging narration style inspired by Agatha Christie's books.

Noir audio-visual setting: Coffee Noir is inspired by classic American comic books and equipped with film noir mood and retro-future ambience with professional voice-overs. Feel the atmosphere of 1940’s - retro-style interiors, smooth jazz, dense cigarette smoke and a smell of good coffee while wearing the classy detective outfit...

At first, Coffee Noir was designed as a serious game for educational purposes. Following a very positive feedback from gamers and several prizes received at video game fairs, we have decided to expand our idea. Improved graphics, professional voice overs, more comic-style cutscenes, extended storyline, investigation board module and mini games - all for true gaming experience focused on intelligent entertainment.
