THQ Nordic is eager to release their new project: Black Mirror. Hence the Gothic violent horror adventure. The games development is being done by Bremen studio KING Art Games. Also known for The Book of Unwritten Tales, The Dwarves and The Raven. So this release will be available on Linux/Windows/Mac, PS4 and Xbox One.
“Black Mirror is a series that is really close to my heart. And it was fantastic to be immersed in the Gothic horror genre again. The human psyche is a fascinating playground!” – Achim Heidelauf, Producer “Black Mirror” (2017), Executive Producer “Black Mirror II” (2009).
“Black Mirror II” (2009) was the first big adventure KING Art worked on. And it’s fantastic to be able to create the new world of the Gordons and Black Mirror. We will be emphasising the unsettling atmosphere. As well as the meticulous detail that the fans of a Black Mirror title have come to expect.” Jan Theysen, Creative Director KING Art Games.
So, like in the original graphic adventure trilogy. The Gothic Horror genre and its unique atmosphere of madness. And also the psychological distress, remains at the heart of Black Mirror.
