ABOUT GAME

DESCRIPTION

Business simulation/tycoon game in which you run a coffee selling company and unravel the detective mystery, presented in crime novel narration and noir audio-visual setting.

At first, Coffee Noir was designed as a serious game for educational purposes. Thanks to a lot of positive feedback from gamers and several prizes received at video game fairs, we decided to expand our idea. Improved graphics, professional voice-overs, more comic-style cutscenes, extended storyline, detective-style game events and point-n-click mini games - all for a true gaming experience focused on intelligent entertainment.

STORY

It’s 2021, an alternate future - discover the mysterious world of Neo-London as Arthur Oliver, a private detective who has already seen his best professional years. He unexpectedly becomes a part of London's dreadful puzzle and must find out why Richard Kersey, a businessman on the local coffee market, disappeared without a trace. The worried family believes that one of the Richard’s business partners is to blame. Thus, for the first time, the detective will have to work undercover as a businessman...

FEATURES

BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

Manage your team, handle production, invest in promotion and don’t let your coffee business go bankrupt - you have to plan your strategy carefully as you deal with limited resources!

DEEP NEGOTIATIONS

Successfully negotiate and gain the trust of your business partners to not only win the good deals, but also to get the clues essential for solving the criminal mystery.

REALISTIC ECONOMIC STRATEGY

The game was developed with the support of professional economists and academics to provide you with a thorough business simulation experience.

INTRIGUING DETECTIVE STORY

Feel the sweat on your brow while solving the case of Richard's disappearance. Don't get yourself easily swayed - this story may be more complicated than it may seem at the first glance!

NOIR AUDIO-VISUAL SETTING

Coffee Noir is inspired by classic American comic books and equipped with film noir mood and retro-future ambience with professional voice-overs. Feel the atmosphere of 40’s - retro-style interiors, smooth jazz, dense cigarette smoke and a smell of good coffee while wearing the classy detective outfit...

Made in Poland - Coffee Noir first impression, how I became a businessman

(…) I could keep describing features, tasks, marketing campaigns and other stuff but I think you just need to check this out on your own. The game is also very good visually. Both artwork and characters based on comic-book style look great. Jazz music that accompanies us in the game is the icing on the cake. The background music brings back smoky American pubs from the 1950s. - Gamezilla.pl
