THQ Nordic & KING Art
“In terms of atmosphere, the outstanding feature of the Black Mirror game series. The unique atmosphere created by KING Art in the original trilogy. We have developed a new interpretation that both retains the strengths of the original games. And gives us more room to explore fresh possibilities in terms of gameplay. So that players can experience the world of Black Mirror in a more direct and free way. And not “just” in classic point-and-click style.” – Martin Kreuch, Producer at THQ Nordic.
“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 and the meticulous detail. Which the fans of a Black Mirror title have come to expect.” Jan Theysen, Creative Director KING Art Games.
So like the original graphic adventure trilogy. Hence the Gothic Horror genre and its unique atmosphere of madness. While also including psychological distress remains at the heart of Black Mirror.
Since the point-and-click gameplay of the original trilogy served as the basis. While the new re-imagined gameplay focuses on close-up investigation. Yet also including the interaction with nightmarish visions. Since they plague the protagonist of the game David Gordon.
