I have searched for books and games that give the similar Noir feeling like this. But nothing tops this.

I've heard about "Discworld Noir" on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grim_fandango
it sais, "Discworld Noir - Another noir adventure game" but i cant find it anywhere(got psx emulator)

side quesions:

what happened to he's first client? he's girl?

oh! and anyone know where i can find songs from full throttle?

thanks!

I have an image in my head that discworld's nothing to do with noir as its to do with wizards and giant turtles, I may be wrong though

well i got the game working on my psx...not entirally legal..but

its a noir game, that have taken some from grim fandango and some from the previous Discorld games, and other movies, like casablanca. Its not exeptionally good, seems like it tries too hard, but it got some nice elements, humor and jazz/blues.

"The game starts with a long introduction of a darker Discworld. You first watch as Lewton is chased by an unknown assailant through the dark streets of Ankh-Morpork and gets murdered, all the while with Lewton himself providing the explanatory voiceover! You then see a flashback to how this tragedy all starts when the mysterious Carlotta walks into Lewton’s office, who after a cliché film-noir-esque speech, hires Lewton to find a man named Mundy. In the beginning, Lewton has only a few leads to follow. Soon however, he learns that there is more to Carlotta than meets the eyes. He quickly finds himself deep in trouble and uncovers a conspiracy of unimaginable proportion. Along the way, there are mysterious murders to solve, secret cults to penetrate, ancient artifacts to uncover, and gods to encounter."
