In the latest episode of our 15 Minutes of Fame YouTube series I take a look at Calvino Noir from Calvino Noir Limited.

Visually this game feels a bit like This War of Mine, albeit with much less depression and despair. It features a 2D side-scrolling presentation with stark black and white visuals with dollhouse style buildings (one side cut out so you can see in) to explore. In terms of gameplay Calvino Noir features a mix of stealth and puzzle solving mechanics as you investigate a mystery that is very noir. The minimal dialogue also does a great job of sucking you into the adventure thanks to its spy feel.

Head on up above to check out over 15-minutes of gameplay with commentary to see what this game is all about. If you like what you see you can pick up the game on sale on Steam for under $10 (ends VERY soon). You can also play it on iOS devices for $3.99.
