Blues and Bullets, a black and white episodic noir adventure from A Crowd of Monsters, is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 19 in North America and April 20 in Europe, with two episodes available on launch day.
Set in a fictional American city called Santa Esperanza during the ’20s, Blues and Bullets stars Eliot Ness, the former leader of the Untouchables. After children start disappearing, he takes the law into his hands to track down the culprit, which comes at the cost of the peaceful life he wanted after jailing Al Capone.
Art Director Dani Candil talked about the visual style of Blues and Bullets:
Yes, we know. The first thing you may be asking when you see Blues and Bullets is… where are the colors? We decided to make an homage to the noir film genre and create a unique atmosphere only using black, white, and red. We used the same old illumination techniques that legendary film directors were using in the ’40s in an attempt to capture this classic but intriguing essence of noir.
The remaining three episodes of Blues and Bullets are undated at the moment.
