Noir Syndrome is a procedurally generated Detective Murder-Mystery with a new story every time! Featuring slick pixel art animations and a jazzy soundtrack, the player is thrown right in to a highly stylized vision of film noir. Visit locations, interrogate suspects, search for clues, and eventually solve the case before the killer escapes - or you wind up dead yourself.

The Noir Syndrome Beta has just been released! Check out the trailer below and read on for more info on how to get in on the action!

Noir Syndrome has come a long way since it's initial announcement almost half a year ago. I've worked mainly alone on the game for the entirety of development. Luckily, I received great moral support from a number of people and fans over the past few months. Eventually, I was able to get in touch with Bombadeer Studios to produce both an excellent soundtrack and a killer set of sound effects. If you're wondering who worked on this game, here's a little credits image to clear things up.

Beta Screenshots

IndieDB has provided a great community so far. I'm very thankful for all of the views and positive support I've gained through this site. Therefore, I want to give back to the community by providing users access to the exclusive beta.

If you want to be a part of the beta, just leave a comment here or send me a direct message. I'll get back to you with details on where to get it. The beta is staying exclusive for a few reasons, but one of the major points is that I want to include a short survey with the game. Feedback helps me improve and provide a better game overall. Together we can make sure this game is perfect for release. If you get your hands on a beta copy, you should be greeted with a title screen that looks like the one below.

So, basically, just contact me! I'll hook you up with a copy and then I can get ready for all kinds of feedback. Thanks again, IndieDB!

Played this game for two hours solving 3 cases. i commend you my good sir, you hit the nail on the head with this game. I would love some sort of motive aspect to the game, like one guy having bad relations with someone then murdering him, or something similar. Crime scene investigation could be improved with the body being there, figuring out how they were killed(With knives, blunt objects, etc etc.). Interrogation would be cool too.

I am just about to vote yes on greenlight for this, and have watched the trailer and I would love to have access to the beta! I'm already getting Sid Meier's Covert Action vibes with this.
