SAN JOSE, Calif. - June 27, 2013 - Indie adventure game developer Phoenix Online Studios is announcing their next release, Face Noir, is now available for $15.99 preorder from FaceNoirGame.com. A noir mystery game set in New York City during the Great Depression, Face Noir will release for PC download on July 18, 2013. The preorder deal includes a 20% discount over the regular $19.99 price and a free MP3 soundtrack.

A moody tale that combines the intrigue and atmosphere of a Raymond Chandler novel or Humphrey Bogart film with classic point-and-click adventure gameplay, Face Noir follows private eye Jack del Nero as he's falsely accused of murdering the man who left a little girl in his protection. As Jack tries to figure out who she is and clear his name, the disillusioned detective finds himself up against a city infested with corruption and economic uncertainty. And he discovers more about human nature than he ever wanted to know along the way.

Developed by Italian indie studio Mad Orange, Face Noir released in Italy and Germany in 2012. Phoenix Online Studios, the team responsible for episodic adventure games The Silver Lining and Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, teamed up with Mad Orange to provide full English localization as well as additional programming support. Based on player feedback, this new version has had its user interface updated, pixel hunts eliminated, and some puzzles tweaked.

The Face Noir preorder joins several third-party games on Phoenix Online's store as the company pursues its goal of creating a hub for indie adventures. Current offerings include award winner The Cat Lady (Harvester Games), the first installments of the episodic adventures Reperfection (Tinnitus Games) and Shadows of the Vatican (10th Art Studio), and puzzle game Vampires! (CBE Software), along with Phoenix's own games, Cognition and freebie The Silver Lining. Visit http://store.postudios.com for details.



Happy Gaming!

Thanks Sheriff

Its been a long wait for the English release. I am curious, since the German and Italian versions have been out for quite some time, has anyone read the reviews on the German or Italian web sites?

GreyFuss, a search on facenoir leads to the German Amazon site...the customer reviews at the bottom of the page average 4.5 out of 5 stars. These can be pasted into a translator site if you're interested in the customers' opinions.

Thanks for the update on this game, Ana.

Thanks for the news, Ana! I plan on getting this one, but may have to hold off for a little while, as I just bought Jack Keane 2 and Deponia 2 (I already have it, but it was on sale, and I wanted the DRM free version) from GOG. Too many games I'm interested in are available at once. lol

Does anyone know if this version is DRM free? If so, I will most likely pick it up with my next paycheck. If not, I will wait and see if GOG gets it. smile

Thanks for this great news, ANA. I played the German demo about a year ago and I loved it. I just pre-ordered the full version.

Looks like my kind of game. I'm thinking about that savings on the preorder.

I was going to ask if there is to be a retail box version released but I guess the download is the wave of the future. I love the price and I am sure I will love the game.
