A Noire Adventure for PS3
PlayStation 3 owners: here’s a little title you probably haven’t heard of but need to know about. It’s called Red Johnson’s Chronicles, and it’s a downloadable title coming to PSN on Tuesday, April 19th.
From French developer Lexis Numérique comes this story-driven noire adventure, a wicked tale of murder in a corrupt Metropolis. You play as the title character, a private detective named Red Johnson who’s trying to solve the case, with a new twist on the classic “point and click” adventure mechanic, which combines exploration, puzzle solving, and action.
The crux of the game is built on interaction with the colorful NPC citizens of Metropolis (yep, they’re really using that name), every last one of which is as morally grey as you can imagine. Lexis Numérique claims the game will take eight to ten hours to properly complete, and the new trailer — just released today — looks promising. Check out these screenshots for a look at its stylistic visuals.
