Nine Noir Lives, an indie point-and-click adventure title, places players in the investigative paws of Cuddles Nutterbutter, a private investigator with a taste for solving crime. His latest case might be his toughest yet, as he threatens to upset a tenuous relationship between the Montameeuw and Catulet crime families. Players can interact with dozens of fully-voiced characters, hand-drawn scenes, and lots of puzzles as Cuddles Nutterbutter tries to find out how many things have to be licked in order to solve a murder in this town.

Players must explore the city of Meow Meow Furrington, which is split into 80 hand-drawn screens, interacting with other cats to solve mysteries along the way. Dialogue is fully voiced, and features "fewer cat puns than you might expurrct" — the developers words, not ours.

Developer Quote

"Wait - did you say the Knitty Kitty Club? Where all the criminals hang out?"
"Not all of them, Tabby. I’m sure some hang out in...uh, dark alleyways, and large empty warehouses down at the docks, and such."

Welcome to Meow Meow Furrington, capital city of cats, home of the world's biggest ball of yarn...and hotbed of crime. You are Cuddles Nutterbutter, feline private investigator and owner of two perfectly normal-sized paws, the doctor said so.

After agreeing to take on a last-minute case for the Chief of Police, you and your plucky assistant find yourselves investigating a murder that risks upsetting the careful balance between the city's two most powerful crime families: the Montameeuws and the Catulets.

Cuddles will need to use every skill he's learned - as well as his definitely-not-smaller-than-average paws - to poke, lick and talk his way through to the heart of the mystery...before some very dangerous cats decide to take matters into their own paws. Which, to clarify, are absolutely regular-sized.
