Space Noir will put you in the shoes of Hal Markham, who seemed to have a perfectly fine and enjoyable life prior to joining the Intergalactic Planetary Consortium. To his dismay, he found his new job required him to enforce draconian laws on the galaxy's colonies rather than working to protect them. So he quits the Consortium, only to return home to find his entire family dead and his fiancé now married to an evil politician. Sounds rough. With his life now in shambles, Hal turns to mercenary work and black market jobs to make ends meet until he can sort out just who and what exactly was behind the downward spiral of his entire life.
