With a storyline that would be right at home in a Raymond Chandler novel or Humphrey Bogart film, Face Noir puts players in the well-worn shoes of a private detective falsely accused of murder. To clear his name, Jack Del Nero must go underground in Depression-era New York City, digging into a little girl's mysterious past to figure out why their fates have converged. But -- as Jack's about to learn the hard way -- even in these tough times, destiny won't take a bribe.

Developed on a shoestring budget by two-man Italian studio Mad Orange and localized into English by Cognition developers Phoenix Online Studios, Face Noir is a point-and-click game with a classic noir storyline, traditional adventure gameplay, atmospheric graphics, and a moody jazz soundtrack. The Steam and Desura releases have full English localization as well as Italian and Russian subtitles.
