“To Hell with the Ugly” is an adventure game featuring Rock Bailey, a captivating yet superficial young man who finds himself kidnapped and must fight to regain his freedom. Set in a 1950s film noir backdrop, the game takes players on a journey through Los Angeles as they help Rocky unravel the mystery behind his abduction.

As Rocky, a charismatic 20-year-old, players wake up in a strange hospital after a night out at the Zooty Slammer, drugged and taken against their will. Determined to uncover the truth, Rocky embarks on a quest for revenge, aided by his journalist partner, Gary. Together, they gather clues from crime scenes, solve puzzles, and engage in turn-based combat to confront those responsible.

In “To Hell with the Ugly,” players will:

  • Explore the dark corners of 1950s LA, immersing themselves in the film noir atmosphere and interacting with locals.
  • Engage in turn-based combat, utilizing timing, precision, and Rocky’s remarkable hair as they fight for freedom.
  • Collect clues, investigate crime scenes, and make crucial choices to solve mysteries.

The game’s setting captures the essence of 1950s LA, presenting a unique perspective on the city with its hidden side and unsettling disappearances. The art direction combines stunning 2D visuals with animated cinematics, bringing the city to life in a bold and captivating manner.

Jazz music permeates the game, setting the mood and enhancing the investigation experience. The jazzy soundtrack accompanies players as they delve deeper into the secrets of “To Hell with the Ugly.“

This game is an adaptation of Boris Vian’s satirical work of the same name, reimagined for the modern era. La Poule Noire and ARTE France have collaborated to bring this captivating and absurd narrative to players, featuring mature content such as explicit nudity, hand-to-hand and weapon combat, light sexual content, and human experimentation.
