    THQ Nordic has announced gothic horror advenure game, Black Mirror, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It will launch on November 28. 

    View the announcement trailer below:


    Here is an overview of the game:

    About

    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.

    Black Mirror – The Brand

    The 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.

    THQ Nordic & King Art

    “One of the outstanding features of the Black Mirror game series is the unique atmosphere which was essentially created by King Art in the original trilogy. We have developed a new interpretation that both retains the strengths of the original games and gives us more room to explore fresh possibilities in terms of gameplay so that players can experience the world of Black Mirror in a more direct and free way, and not “just” in classic point-and-click style.” – Martin Kreuch, Producer at THQ Nordic.

    Black Mirror is a series that is really close to my heart, and it was fantastic to be immersed in the Gothic horror genre again; the human psyche is a fascinating playground!” – Achim Heidelauf, Producer Black Mirror (2017), Director & Writer Black Mirror II (2009).

    Black Mirror II (2009) was the first big adventure King Art worked on, and it’s fantastic to be able to create the new world of the Gordons and Black Mirror. We will be emphasizing the unsettling atmosphere and the meticulous detail that the fans of a Black Mirror title have come to expect.” Jan Theysen, Creative Director King Art Games.

    Gamescom 2017

    A playable demo of Black Mirror will be ready for Gamescom 2017 for both industry and public visitors to try out, and the THQ Nordic Stand (A011) is in the Entertainment Area in Hall 8.

    Sales for Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age are on track to meet the lower end of expections, according to Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda during the financial results briefing.

    "We believe that we can reach the lower end of our unit sales plan," said Matsuda. "Our goal is to reach the upper end of that plan, but we believe that that will depend on how sales of the Nintendo 3DS version trend going forward."


    Matsuda revealed that sales for the PlayStation 4 version are stronger than the Nintendo 3DS version. 

    "We have seen stronger sales of the PlayStation 4 version than the Nintendo 3DS version, but given the installed base, we have high hopes for growth in sales of the Nintendo 3DS version going forward as well."

    The Australian Classification Boar rated the puzzle game, Papers, Please, for the PlayStation Vita. The game was first announced for the PlayStation Vita at Gamescom 2014.

    Here is an overview of the game:

    Congratulations.
    The October labor lottery is complete. Your name was pulled.
    For immediate placement, report to the Ministry of Admission at Grestin Border Checkpoint.
    An apartment will be provided for you and your family in East Grestin. Expect a Class-8 dwelling.
    Glory to Arstotzka

    The communist state of Arstotzka has just ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

    Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists.

    Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission’s primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

    Game Freak co-founder, director, and producer Junichi Masuda and Pokemon Sun and Moon director Shigeru Ohmori discueed with Game Informer their ideas for Pokemon spin-off games they would like to see in generes the franchise has not yet explored.

    "It’s kind of an Easter Egg from X and Y, but Rhydon Racing was a thing in that world," said Masuda. "There might be a message in there that I really want to create Rhydon racing."

     

    Ohmori added, "I really want to try working on a real action-focused game. Of course, we’ve kind of got those already with fighting games as well so it’s hard to say what it would be. Like a 2D side-scrolling action game, maybe."

    Masuda also discussed Pokemon GO"Pokémon Go! I am not sure if you can call that a spin-off title. Pokémon Go is experiencing something similar where people are saying, ‘Eh, it’s done. The fad’s over,’ but it was way worse than that after Gold and Silver had settled down and we were working on the next game."

    "I played a lot of Pokémon Snap. I got really into it," added Ohmori. "The most fun part for me – this may have been a Japan-only thing – but you could take your game to a convenience store and print out the photos you took and could use them like stickers and put them on things. I just had a lot of fun being able to take the photos in the game and print them out as things that I could use."

    Electronic Arts could release more of its games on the Nintendo Switch if the Switch version of FIFA 18 sells well enough. The game releasses on September 29. 

    "I’ve made people repeatedly, publicly aware that I’m a gigantic Nintendo fanboy. Nintendo was what got me into this industry in the first place. I take my Switch with me everywhere,"  executive vice president Patrick Söderlund told Edge Magazine (via Nintendo Everything). 

     

    "What I will say is, we will appear on any platform where there are consumers, and players. We believe that we want to be a part of the Switch, and help Nintendo grow that installed base; that’s why you’ll see FIFA, which by the way is really good this year. It’s a full-fledged FIFA game, for the first time to be honest, on a portable device."

    "But at the same time we have to look at it from a resource standpoint and, at some point, the numbers become a factor. So for us it’s about supporting the platform, building technology for the platform, testing it out with big things like FIFA – and maybe a couple of others, we’ll see – and if they go well, I see no reason why we shouldn’t have as much of our portfolio on that platform as possible. I hope we get there, that would be my personal ambition."
