Film noir is a pretty specific genre, a throwback to the 1940s and 1950s, when femme fatales and damsels alike were all dames and private eyes wore standard-issue fedoras and trenchcoats. But really, what is it about the genre that continues to appeal to writers, readers, filmmakers, and movie buffs? Perhaps there is something in the dark humor, unrelenting cynicism, the draw of the criminal underbelly, and the hard-boiled detective antihero that drive the genre to continue to draw fans almost a century later. This week, I offer two point-and-click flash game series that are inescapably, classically noir but still modern reinterpretations in a pixellated form.
