Patent9 is a pulp noir visual novel. It’s immersed in hard-smacking dialogue with tragic antiheroes through a sordid storyline, featuring mystery, conspiracy, and murder all set in a neon-lit, rain-soaked, deco cityscape.

A bioengineering professor, Lang, decided to cross an invisible, but palpable moral line to fulfil the Patent Committee commission to liberate casualties of the scientific progress. His road to redemption will be stalled by hard choices in the world, driven by greed, lust, jealousy, and alienation.

The lines between his friends and foes are a little blurry. Femme fatales will just as soon kill you as love you. Stomach wrenched moments will shape his destiny as he sleuths a path, which inevitably sucks him into a downward spiral from which he cannot escape.

The darkly themed narrative is merged with high-contrast “mise-en-scène” duotone of the black-and-white environments.

Discover the bitter truth about what Patent 9 is.
