Unsettling 1920s adventure title The Black Glove is being removed and placed (for now) back in the glove box, according to project creators Day For Night Games.
A post on their site confirms that although a gameplay demo toured around GDC and PAX East this year “garnered some interest” from publishers, the team couldn’t find “the perfect glass slipper we were looking for.” Without a deal, various members of the studio began to drift away for other, paying, work.
The Black Glove ran a Kickstarter campaign last October, but unfortunately failed to meet the intended target of $550,000. All this, despite the former Irrational Games pedigree of the studio.
“We’d like to thank everyone who lent their support to the project. Whether you checked out the project on Kickstarter, wrote a news story about it, created awesome fan art, gave advice, or even just RTed, thank you a thousand times,” the Day For Night message reads.
There’s a chance The Black Glove may be donned once again, however. The main section of the statement concludes with the belief that “we intend to return to The Black Glove later when we can do it right.”
This is followed by a list of current and future titles (including successfully funded Kickstarter Underworld Ascendent) that members of Day For Night will be working on.
