Pixel Noir Concept Teaser

What is it with retro studios putting the word Pixel before everything in the names of their games? Pixel Noir looks conceptually like a really cool game, all have to go on is the teaser trailer above though.

It’s well worth a watch. And if I’m not mistaken the people making it have named themselves after Cyan from Final Fantasy VII’s signature SWD Tech.

SWDTech Games presents “Pixel Noir” a new take on classic JRPGs giving iOS & Android audiences a unique perspective on classic film noir action, as seen through a 16-bit lens.

Mario Meets Limbo… Noirio?

I have this image down in my notes as being by iGreefing and that matches the water mark but it’s not longer in their gallery…

I’d love to put together a Mario game in the style of Limbo I think it would be super creepy.

While I’m on the subject of B&W Mario games, there is also this image which is also in my to-blog queue:
