YMMV / Discworld Noir

  • Fridge Brilliance: Horst is really shrewd and well-spoken for a Discworld troll. It's hard to make out in the dark scene, but there's something moving up and down above his head when you speak to him in his residence: a fan that's keeping his brain cooler, much like Detritus's cooling helmet. Troll brains work better at colder temperatures.
    • Subverted: When you first meet him Lewton's narration points all this out. And later in the game, he's out and about without a punkah-wallah in attendance and shows no sign of getting dumbed down.
  • Funny Moments: Many, but, Death has the best lines in the whole game.
  • Moment of Awesome: Anytime Lewton wolfs out on a villain.
    • The ending, where Lewton banishes Nylonathotep back to the Dungeon Dimensions by crashing into him with a primitive flying machine inscribed with magic sigils.
  • Nightmare Fuel: A subtle one. The last time Nylonathotep was invoked, thousands of years ago, the sacrifices forming the octagram were situated at various points around the Circle Sea. During the time the game takes place, the octagram only covers Ankh-Morpork, and Nylonathotep is still huge enough to be a formidable threat. Just how big was it the first time around? It is possible that there are no records of its reign of terror because no civilisations survived.
  • Squick: One of the murders involved the victim being eaten.
