With just three days left on the Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame The Black Glove developer Day For Night Games is pulling out all the stops. The studio still needs to raise well over $300,000 USD to reach its $550,000 goal and has such launched a ‘Save The Black Glove From Cancellation’ campaign. Part of that campaign is an endorsement from legendary developer and BioShock creator, Ken Levine.
An update to The Black Glove‘s Kickstarter campaign contains a video in which Levine speaks about the title as seen below. “I haven’t played The Black Glove yet,” Levine says, “but I’ve worked with almost every single person who’s working on it and I can tell you that I have a huge amount of confidence and I think you can tell from the videos that you’ve seen that the atmosphere of that game is just going to be amazing and I’m really looking forward to immersing myself in that world.”
The Black Glove is a unique first-person experience in which players are cast as the curator for The Equinox, a strange 1920s theatre that houses three insane creators. Players will explore The Equinox equipped with The Black Glove, a magical artefact capable of bending time and space among other things. As the title progresses players will face The Space Minotaur, a hulking beast that somehow breaks free of the confines of an 8-bit arcade videogame found within the theatre.
Earlier in The Black Glove‘s campaign the title was confirmed for PlayStation 4. More recently support for both the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus VR head-mounted displays (HMD) was announced. Should the Kickstarter campaign prove successful then the title will launch on October 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow The Black Glove, reporting back with all the latest updates on its progress.
