Renoir is a side scrolling puzzle platformer with an eerie noir crime style. The project is now up on Kickstarter with an extended trailer and gameplay explanation
Taken in parts, each individual aspect of Renoir has been done before. The plot centers on a ghost detective trying to solve his own murder. The art is mostly monochromatic with a few splashes of color. The gameplay involves playing a section, rewinding, and then cooperating with a recording of that play. All that said, it still looks beautiful.
Renoir kicked off it Kickstarter campaign a couple days ago and it has since made a decent chunk of its roughly $60,000 base funding goal. It’s far from being a sure thing at this stage, but there is some interest. If funded, it is planned for release on Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One, with the console releases coming in after PC.
