Description

You’re the Private Investigator on a string of grisly murders, scouring for clues in a 3D side-scrolling world. Grab your fedora and revolver - in Hot Tin Roof you’re on the case! Dive into a noir mystery and become Emma Jones, the only PI partnered to a cat named Franky.

History

Hot Tin Roof was at PAX Prime in 2013. We launched a Kickstarter around that time, which did really well: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/meganfox/527742363. Then we got Greenlit: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=169342477. We showed again at Comicon and then at PAX Prime 2014, and the booth was wall to wall people. So that was cool! Now we're releasing!

Features

  • Noir as fuck.
  • Metroidvania-ish gameplay in a side-scrolling 3D world.
  • Instead of acquiring abilities, you acquire new revolver rounds (but none that can kill).
  • Scour the world for clues! Use them in conversations to unlock secrets, doors and more.
  • Cats. More cats than you could shake a cat at. Also, pigeons and rats. Having spats.
  • Kickin' chip noir jazz soundtrack.
