L.A. Noire players: save the date for Adslife release

lanoire

From this L.A. Noire review:

[L.A. Noire] owes more to Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, the old-school graphic adventure and the fiction of James Ellroy and Raymond Chandler, not to mention Polanski’s Chinatown, than it does GTA4 and Red Dead Redemption. Sure […] At heart, however, L.A. Noire is a fairly linear, dialogue-driven adventure game with the focus firmly on investigating crime scenes, discovering clues and interrogating suspects.

If you are liking the narrative quality and atmosphere of the design of L.A. Noire, you may enjoy Adslife – even though it is a browser game, produced by a new, small, indie game dev shop.

Goes live September 1st here.


Save the date: Adslife will be online September 1st

Adslife will be online on September 1st at http://adslifegame.com.
