Cat-themed video video games are within the zeitgeist now. However not like Stray, which follows a misplaced feline in a post-apocalyptic cyberpunk world, 9 Noir Lives trades the robotic companions and backpacks for fedoras and trench coats.
A brand new trailer — timed simply in time for Worldwide Cat Day — reveals off the sport’s licking mechanic. The primary character, hardboiled detective Cuddles Nutterbutter, goes round licking varied objects and different cats. As one character explains, that’s simply how cats obtain data! It’s just a bit bizarre that these cats have very humanlike voices and giggle as they’re being licked.
The sport, from Silvernode Video games, will likely be a comedic spin on the noir style, happening in a cat-filled world. Cuddles takes on a last-minute case that sends him and his assistant by means of the darkish alleys of Meow Meow Furrington, which is, after all, the capital metropolis of cats.
9 Noir Lives will likely be out there for PC through Steam on Sept. 7.
