The guys over at The Poppenkast are currently holding a competition, for which participants are asked to create a 'Game Noir' - described by the organiser JW as 'film noir but then a game'.

Anyone can enter, individually or in a team, and the name Poppenkast must be mentioned somewhere in your game. It's all for a bit of a laugh - the prize for the winning developer/s will apparently be a Film Noir style hat.

If you're up for a challenge, check out the rules for the contest and get creative!
