A new noir game, Renoir, wants us to help solve its mysteries

Renoir

A cool fact about yours truly: I adore anything noir. If you’re anything like me, then I have some fantastic news for you.

We all know games like LA Noire, Wolf Among Us, and more that have made us fall in love with their dark undertones and mysterious storylines. And we all know that any amount of noir-based video games won’t be enough, but this new game called Renoir will help to fill the gap!

Following in the footsteps of a newly promoted detective, we pick up clues along the way to help us solve this case. But in the process, our detective finds himself six feet under, going from newly named detective to newly made ghost. Even so, he must solve unlock the mystery behind this case. Us? We help him finish it.

“Now a ghost, Renoir possesses a unique ability that allows him to control phantoms around him and use them to solve environmental puzzles. Seeking justice from the shadows, he must tread carefully and avoid light at all costs. James’s ghostly form must backtrack over his last steps in the world of the living, recollecting his memories and searching for the clues that will lead him back to his murderer.”

You may or may not have seen me dancing around on our YouTube channel. Either way, I feel obligated to tell you that I am a huge film noir enthusiast and I love a good horror book. Oh, and also a good jazz tune. Aw yis.
