THQ Nordic Reveals Black Mirror, a New Gothic-Horror Adventure Game for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

THQ Nordic has announced Black Mirrora new gothic-horror adventure game.

The game is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One via German studio King Art Games (The Book of Unwritten Tales, The Dwarves).

It’s set for a release on November 28th of this year. Featured above, you can view the game’s debut trailer.

The game is based on the adventure series that predates the Netflix series of the same name. Originally released in 2004 as The Black Mirror, it produced two more spin-offs, Black Mirror II (2009) and Black Mirror III (2011).

Here’s a rundown on the game, via THQ Nordic:


Like in the original graphic adventure trilogy, the gothic horror genre and its unique atmosphere of madness and psychological distress remains at the heart of Black Mirror.

The point-and-click gameplay of the original trilogy served as the basis for the re-imagined gameplay, which focuses on close-up investigation and interaction with nightmarish visions that plague the protagonist of the game David Gordon.

Key Features

  • A modern re-imagining of the acclaimed gothic-horror adventure series.
  • Interactions with vision-like apparitions which help you learn more about the past of your family.
  • Eerie atmosphere focusing on the horrors of the mind, in the style of EA Poe and HP Lovecraft.
  • High quality voice acting from a compelling ensemble cast.

THQ is showcasing the game at this year’s Gamescom with a playable demo. If you’re looking to get the first hands-on with the title, make sure to visit their booth at A011 within the Entertainment Area in Hall 8.

    I played the original from 2004 and it was a pretty good horror adventure game.

    I’m a little disappointed that it’s not Black Mirror IV, but I’m still happy that we’re getting a new one!
