SOUTHAMPTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, January 24, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Untangle a gripping conspiracy by searching for clues to expose the dark underside of the city with the release of SWDTech Games’ new detective JRPG, Pixel Noir.
As a rookie detective, players investigate the strange happenings & curious cases of Pinnacle City. Gamers can indulge their noir impulses as they put the screws to prime suspects, fight through a gangland turf war, and maybe even get double-crossed by a mysterious woman from the past.
“With the launch of Pixel Noir, we’re taking our first step to deliver JRPGs tailored to adults while still honoring our roots from games like Chrono Trigger, Shadowrun, & Earthbound,” explains SWDTech Games Co-Founder Kunal Majmudar. “We designed the game around the premise of ‘what a SNES JRPG based in Midgar would look like with a gritty, noir twist, and we can’t wait for players to experience the story and world we’ve built.”
Players take to the streets of Pinnacle City and explore its wretched core, thriving with grifters as they collect clues using investigation skills to find items and crack cases.
Meander through dark alleys to discover shops and black markets for helpful items and customizable weapons to fit any play style.

Trailing the footsteps of the golden SNES era of RPGs, Pixel Noir combines well-crafted dialogue and storytelling of film noir with classic turn-based elements, packaged with a unique pixel art style any retro or noir enthusiast would appreciate.
