THQ Nordic has announced Black Mirror [Official Site], a re-imagining of the acclaimed gothic-horror adventure series being developed by KING Art and it seems it will support Linux.

See Linux mentioned clearly at the end, lovely.

From the press release:
QuoteThe 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 adventure series was released in 2004 as “The Black Mirror”, which produced two more spin-offs, “Black Mirror II” (2009) and “Black Mirror III” (2011).

But don’t worry, even players unfamiliar with the previous games in the series can also enjoy Black Mirror, because this reboot of the franchise tells a totally independent and new story. The major difference between the new and old Black Mirror, apart from the modern graphics of course, will be a new gameplay element: interaction with vision-like apparitions.


It releases on November 28th. You can see the official press release here, which also mentions Linux.

Looks really good. I'm eager for some gameplay footage now. If it turns out to be an actual (read somewhat traditional) adventure game and not just another cinematic choose-your-own-adventure, I'm sold.

Had to look up the original game. It was a point & click adventure. And KING Art does those really well. Plus, it's about time I got one of theirs early after release.

So it's about a giant Marmite pudding? If it's an action-y-ish adventure, I'm excited. If it's just a pretty point-n-click, I'll trudge on.

Black Mirror 1 was one of the best p&c adventures of it's time. Part 2 and 3 have been very good as well.

And King Art already proved that they know how to make a great p&c game. Their artstyle is awesome and they have always so much love for details. I just hope, they can improve their QA a little bit, especially when it comes to the Linux version.

I can't wait to play Black Mirror 4.

Looks good! Hopefully the release of this will mean they'll get to work on BoUT 3 as well .

I liked the first two of the old trilogy though the ending of the third one left me blue balled.

And one thing bugs me about their blurb
Quotebecause this reboot of the franchise tells a totally independent and new story.

How is it a reboot if the story is not related in the slightest ??
That's like having a Mario reboot about a Goomba , or a Batman reboot about Commissioner Gordon. The heck ?

So, this is not related to the TV series. I'm disappointed.

That's awesome news. I started playing the first one only a few days ago

THQ Nordic are DRM-free friendly (they have a lot of games on GOG), so this is promising.

I never played the original series, but description reminds me of horror classic - Clive Barker's Undying.

The original three games are some really, really good adventures. At the moment gog.com offers them for around 3€ each and they work perfectly fine in wine.
