About this game
Developer: Calvino Noir Limited
Content Rating: Teen
The film noir stealth game. Calvino Noir is the exploratory, sneaking adventure through the 1930s European criminal underworld. Architecture meets Noir as you become unwillingly entangled in a revolutionist plot. Inspired by the futuristic dystopian visions of Deus Ex and Blade Runner. Play as a disparate group of last-chancers as they fight for the future of a city sliding slowly into the gutter. Some are broken souls, some are merely damaged - all are fighting to forge a future in an ugly world ruled by those whose hearts are cruel and dark.

The system you rage against in Calvino Noir is not the muddy, corporate pressures of Wilt and crew’s dry story, it’s your own means of existence in the game itself. It’s really not about espionage, but a losing fight against your influence in the world. You have the ability to choke guards, to pick locks, to interact with certain objects based on what character you’re currently playing, however those abilities are not guaranteed, highlighted with laborious repetition. In that way, there’s a cynicism deep-rooted in Calvino Noir, a heavy darkness you can’t escape.
Had it not been for the greatly compromised stealth mechanics, it’s not a stretch to say that Calvino Noir would have scored much higher than the number you can see plastered on the page here. As it is, you could gut your way through the game and still find some degree of satisfaction, but ultimately, like a lovelorn romantic trying to find answers at the bottom of a cheap bottle of whiskey, you can expect frustration and a longing for what Calvino Noir could have been.
Calvino Noir est un jeu qui repose sur un scénario un peu cliché qui n'en demeure pas moins bien écrit. Le style graphique ainsi que l'ambiance sonore développés dans le jeu sont très réussis et permettent une immersion rapide dans l'univers dans lequel évolue nos héros. Les différentes mécaniques de gameplay sont intéressantes mais ne font pas de ce jeu un divertissement où la stratégie prime : le gameplay devient vite répétitif et linéaire et la rejouabilité est presque nulle.
