Do you remember Glass Bottom Games? The guys (actually more gals) that made Jones on Fire? Well, they’re back, and this time to bring us  Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora. It’s a noir 3D side-scrolling platformer (currently) for PC, Mac and Linux where players have to explore and uncover clues, with the usual bit of cats here and there.

You’re Emma Jones, a two bit girl in an 8-bit world, and you’re the private investigator on a string of grisly murders.  You’ll run, jump and climb through a massive 3D city, sleuthing up clues and tracking down the killer. Enjoy the trailer.

We had the luck to try a beta version in advance (but ssshh, that’s a secret!) and it looks gorgeous! Definitely something we want to see finished! You all be able to try it too at next PAX.

Hot Tin Roof is currently on Kickstarter (throw them some money here) and on Steam Greenlight (vote it here).

Still uncertain if backing the game or not? Here are some features you might want consider:

    • Noir as fuck.
    • Tons of platforming and exploring, hunting for clues.
    • Cats, but not JUST cats. Pigeons too, and rats!
    • Metroidvania-esque – just more of the Metroid, less of the vania.

That’s all, we can just hope all the luck to Glass Bottom Games for their new project, hoping it’ll be able to see the light of day.

Here’s the press release.

Ok, everything’s nice…but what about a screen like this, to avoid the gap between the two monitors? Anyway, if you’re interested, you can buy the game here.
