What is Electric Noir?

When you want to know how things really work, study them when they’re coming apart.

— William Gibson, “Zero History”

Electric Noir is a post-apocalyptic role-playing exploration of transhumanism set in a cyberpunk dystopian Neo-America (NeoAm). You are Ode, a seeker, a bounty hunter tasked with hunting down Augmented criminals, evildoers who are too strong for the over-worked police force.

Gameplay

An action role-playing game with combat, crafting, attributes and skills, dialogue, inventory, and nano-tech weapons where you use all your skills to bring criminals to justice all while unlocking a noir story centering around NeoAm, Augs, and the truth behind “The Event”.

The Story

After “The Event” in the late 21st century war erupted across the globe. Nations fell, billions died. Two hundred years later, a few countries have almost recovered. Neo-America (Neo-Am) is one of these countries. It is the country you live in.

Nano-Augmentations (augs) are changing how humans live their lives in NeoAm. The blind can see, the deaf can hear, the mute can speak, almost anything is fixable or improveable in this new age.

Yes, augs have improved society greatly. However it has also improved crime. The police force is over-worked and under-staffed. You are Ode, a seeker or bounty hunter tasked with hunting down augmented criminals and bringing them to justice.
