THQ Nordic has just revealed its new project: Black Mirror, a gothic horror adventure that’s due for release in November. The game will be developed by the Bremen studio KING Art Games, known for “The Book of Unwritten Tales”, “The Dwarves” and “The Raven”, and will be available on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
David Gordon never knew his estranged father particularly well. Still it comes as a shock when he is summoned to his family’s ancestral home in the Scottish highlands, after his father has taken his own life there. David does not know much about his father’s final weeks, but the circumstances of his death seem more than peculiar. Settling the heritage is merely an excuse for David to find out more about the castle his father grew up in, meeting the family he never knew and for shedding light on the mysteries surrounding his father’s death.
Tormented by nightmares and waking dreams for all his life, he fears that it might be his destiny to follow in his father’s footsteps, down a path that leads to madness and death. Is there really a curse that has been haunting his family for generations as his father believed? Or are the mysteries hidden inside the cold walls of Black Mirror house of a far more wordly nature? It is up to David to uncover the horrible truths, buried under generations of silence and fathoms of stone.
Check out the brand new eerie atmospheric trailer below.
The game name may already exist one way or another, and no, we’re not talking about the Netflix series. The first part of the creepy point-and-click series was released in 2004 as “The Black Mirror”, which produced two more spin-offs, “Black Mirror II” (2009) and “Black Mirror III” (2011).
This reboot of the franchise tells a totally independent and new story. Like in the original graphic adventure trilogy, the Gothic Horror genre and its unique atmosphere of madness and psychological distress remains at the heart of Black Mirror.
Close-up investigation and interaction with nightmarish visions, we’re in! Black Mirror looks set to bring its chills to PS4 on November 28th.
