Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
The first two episodes of the episodic noir adventure called Blues and Bullets will release on April 19th for Playstation 4.
A Crowd of Monsters is releasing their Steam hit Blues and Bullets for the Playstation 4 next week and I’m pretty curious. I’m no fan of PC gaming and I would prefer a controller and console above any PC. However, we console gamers miss out on some awesome games. Blues and Bullets could be one of those awesome games – it looks really stylish and sets itself apart from other games with it’s noir style – and I’m excited they’re bringing it to the Playstation 4 next week.
Blues and Bullets is a noir adventure set in the ’20s, in a fictional American city called Santa Esperanza. A place where Eliot Ness, the former leader of the legendary Untouchables, wished to spend the rest of his days working in his diner after jailing Al Capone, not dwelling too much on the cesspit of corruption his city had degenerated into.
But things rarely go as planned.
When children suddenly start to disappear, Eliot decides to take the law into his own hands, track down the culprit, and bring him to justice by any means necessary — even if he has to abandon his dreams of a peaceful life and again get embroiled in shootouts with the usual array of assassins and hoodlums.
Helped by various (famous and infamous) characters from unexpected places, the player must guide Eliot through the increasingly morbid and decadent scenarios searching for clues to solve the case.
The developers have decided to make an homage to the noir film genre and create a unique atmosphere only using black, white, and red. they’ve used the same old illumination techniques that legendary film directors were using in the ’40s in an attempt to capture this classic but intriguing essence of noir.
“After the hard work, sleepless nights, and dozens of pizzas for the team, we are bringing all of our work to this wonderful platform. We’re so happy with the finished result and we hope you enjoy the adventure, the blues inspired OST created by Sonotrigger and Izä (enjoy the OST here!), and our homage to noir.”
The first two episodes of Blues and Bullets will hit the Playstation Store on April 19, 2016.
