Revised version of my old noir game mockup.
It's around one month old.
And a question TO YOU:
Would YOU play a game with graphics like these? Or would you prefer a full color game instead?

I would play it. Contrary to what most people seem to be saying, I think you could important emphasize moments/cutscenes etc by using only 3 or 4 greys instead of adding color. Just an idea.

I'd definitely play a game like this.  :)

I would definitely play this game. Awesome work.

don't know... would need to see more impressing pictures like this. it is full of atmosphere. but i can imagine to buy it, yes.

BadMrBox (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/6/2007 20:27
It would be cool to play a game that looks like this.

Knave (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/5/2007 07:24
I would indeed play a game without colour!

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 2/16/2007 06:13
Aha, gra nie powstanie (chociaz... moze, kiedys ;)

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 8/24/2006 12:54
If I really were to make a game with graphics like that, there would be no "real" colors for a simple reason - there were none in noir films and it worked, why should I add them then? (not that they had any choice)
This isn't some crappy Sin City, where they chose the style only because the comic book used it, it's pure noir ;)

I'd like it if the game was grayscale and added in certain scenes a couple of additional colors.. For example add dark red for bloody scenes..

Arksole Hoax (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/31/2006 10:15
i would play it, but i would preffer a color scene or at least some pictures too. maybe as eye candy.

Grafika jak zwykle JEST bardzo ladna, lecz nie ma co kryc, preferuje kolorki :3. Chyba ze zobacze jakies fajne efekty badz techniki uzycia szarosci, to wtedy rekompensuje kolorki :p. A nawet bez tego, zagral bym w gre w skali szarosci gdyz, jak juz pisalem, z kolorem czy bez, grafika jest ladna.

Surfin' Bird (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/24/2006 06:21
Of course I would play grayscale game. I think it's a great style. I hope you will make this game.
And It's a very good pixelart, by the way. Favority!

It would also work well if maybe the game was played from more than one persons perspective, maybe past memories or the mind of a coma patient trying to regain conciousness by dealing with the psychological problems of a world created in their own mind could be made in a noir style and then present day events or another person in the real world could be played in colour and as the two parallel stories unfold, little bits of colour from the real world could enter the B&W one!

I'm babbling, ignore me!, it's your game after all I just got inspired by the piece and this is what I came up with. Sorry!

I love the piece anyways and if you do intend to make a full game from this mockup I would definately play it!!

CDI (Level 5 Detective) @ 6/20/2006 20:07
I's play it even if it had LESS grey xD

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 6/20/2006 17:12
Id like color in game and greyscale in certain parts or story scenes. not sure.

MurrMan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/20/2006 15:45
Grayscale is fine by me. i would definetly play it.
But, it could always turn to color at certain points of intence mood/emotion. Wizard of oz was black and white and then later turned to color.

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 6/20/2006 13:06
sweet stuff, definitely play it =)

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/20/2006 12:31
I would definitely play it if and only if you had some really interesting lighting situations for some of the levels, such as strong flashes of lightning or a single streetlamp.  You know, noir.

Godzilla (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 6/20/2006 11:12
I would play it! o/

These  grayscale graphics gif a certain style for the game. ^^

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/20/2006 10:34
i agree with pmprog, i would play it but dull pallettes would keep the effect but add just enough variation.

kaltsu (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/20/2006 10:19
I might increase contrasts a little bit... but yeah, surely would play. Looking very nice.

KLC (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/20/2006 10:08
I'd play it with these graphics. They are really damn good!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/20/2006 09:48
With these quality graphics, of course I'd play it!!!!!

pmprog (Level 4 Murderer) @ 6/20/2006 09:30
Yeah, I think I would play like this. Either that, or using an extreamly dull palette (see a quick mock I made of your mock)

HawkTheSlayer (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/20/2006 09:27

A very interesting concept and well designed, the choice of a noir style for a futuristic game seems a little strange, but cool, is the game a detective story to fit the tone? I like the mix of futuristic with B&W,reminds me of Metropolis.

I myself would play a game with just grey tones, but after time I think it would get a little hard on the eye!

I like how clear the text panel shows.

What about a game that changes from noir to colour, akin to Wizzard of Oz!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/20/2006 09:21
It looks great. Being greyscale i think the attention to detail and depth is increased, and i love how smooth everything is. Of course, i'd play a game in greyscale no problem, especially with graphics such as these, although i'd probably prefer colour. This has a great sense of style though, so i dont think it really matters. It could be interesting if it was tinted slightly. Anyway, great stuff.
