Indie development studio Silvernode Games has announced the comedy noir point-and-click adventure Nine Noir Lives. The game is expected to be released on PC via Steam and GOG on September 7th. A ball of yarn full of mystery awaits in the cat town of Meow Meow Furrington - with lots of point, click and "lick".

Cat lovers and adventure fans step into the able velvet paws of Cuddles Nutterbutter to unravel a hilariously devilish mystery in the hand-painted town of Meow Meow Furrington.

In Nine Noir Lives, players step into the shoes of private investigator Cuddles Nutterbutter, who literally loves to solve crimes. Through poking, talking and licking, Cuddles must face his toughest case yet: a murder that threatens the fragile peace between the meow-powerful Montameuw and Catulet crime families. Players will find dozens of fully voiced characters, beautifully hand-painted scenes, and numerous puzzles that will answer the most important question of all: what does it take to solve this murder?

Cats game by two man team

The story, subject matter and tone of Nine Noir Lives draws inspiration from a variety of influences, from classic film noir to Shakespeare to the offbeat style of writer-director Taika Waititi. Thanks to this extraordinary mix, Silvernode Games manages to create a unique and funny story with serious undertones.

Silvernode Games' two-man team with a deep passion for point-and-click adventures is hard at work developing a love letter to the genre and its protagonists like Grim Fandango and Broken Sword. Nine Noir Lives builds on this, adapting elements from classics of the genre to create an experience that is both familiar and fresh. "Nine Noir Lives is a passion project that we have funded ourselves for years and have completed in our spare time," said William Kruger, Founder of Silvernode Games. "Our goal is to make the kind of game we want to lose ourselves in. We put so much love into our work and we can't wait for players to dive into our feline world in September.”
