Metropolis Lux Obscura is a unique game with a film noir atmosphere, seductive wanton women, and dirty dangerous secrets. Gameplay is based on a motion comic with a non-linear plot mixed with MATCH3 puzzle fights. This city is rotten to the core. You can’t even tell night from day in this hell where big money runs everything. And the best way to prove you’re right is with brute force. Jon Lockhart walked through the prison gates a free man, after spending years imprisoned as the supposed murderer of an old friend. He returned once more to the city where it all started intent on figuring out who it was that framed him for the murder and make them pay in blood for the crime. Itd take some work with the key witness dead, but that just meant hed have to flush out every rat from hiding. Old friends and new enemies. Search for the truth, for loyalty and sanity - but all you can find here is redemption, betrayal and death. Welcome to Metropolis.
METROPOLIS: LUX OBSCURA
Metropolis: Lux Obscura, my Sin City only as a game. If Sin City is a movie noir, Metropolis: Lux Obscura is a game noir. Jon Lockhart is back in Metropolis the Moloch of the City, in this interactive comic strip that... drips with betrayal, revenge, greed, sex, money and human abysses. Jon is an anti-hero who still has something to settle in his own way. Je according to choice and decision at the individual places of action, expect one four different ends. They increase the replay value of the rather short comic strip. The fights are played as match-3 games (difficulty increases according to the course of the action), whereby you can improve one of your skills after a victory. The dark atmosphere is further enhanced by the appropriate music. I personally find the comic-like narrative about our tragic anti-hero Jon Lockhart in this abyssally evil city, combined with the match-3 games and the skills system as a round thing that picked me up in Metropolis. A demo to play is available.
