The Black Glove will attempt to push the narrative game genre forward by tying story directly to gameplay, allowing players to alter both events and the world around them.

Find yourself in The Equinox, an eerie 1920s theatre that appears unstuck from conventional reality. It’s pervaded by weird dream logic, inexplicable holes in space, unshielded x-ray art installations and tasteful use of crushed velvet.

The Equinox has three creators in residence: artist Marisol,  filmmaker Avery Arnault and musical act Many Embers. Their work is in bad shape when you arrive and has taken a strange, metaphysical toll on the theatre. Time flows backwards in areas. Weird things peek out of once-sealed doorways. Unearthly music plays.

As the latest Curator, it falls to you to get The Equinox back on its feet by changing the creators’ past to improve their work in the present. How? The hosts Hazel and Cribbage explain that there are “certain games of skill and chance that allow us to interact with what you might call ‘fourth-dimensional space.'”

The Black Glove will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux. A Kickstarter Campaign is in progress until November 7, 2014. Day for Night Games would love your support.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
