Black Mirror Out Now on PC & Consoles

Check out Flotsams First Look here.

View the trailer here.

Quote:
Vienna/Austria, Bremen/Germany - November 28, 2017: The tragic story of the Gordon family gets a new chapter: Today, KING Art Games and THQ Nordic are releasing Black Mirror; a modern re-imagining of the acclaimed gothic-horror adventure series. The new protagonist, David Gordon, must deal with the mysteries of Black Mirror castle as well as trying to find out if there is an ongoing curse on his family.

Black Mirror is available now on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation™4, the SRP is €29,99 // $29.99 // £24.99 on PC and €29,99 // $29.99 // £34.99 on consoles.


About Black Mirror
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 your family's past
• 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


Happy Gaming!

Well I made my purchase, excited to start playing. I need to finish some of the games I have started, but I probably won't. I have no patience.

Thanks for that reassurance, flotsam smile

As usual, I currently have several games on the go at once, so it might be some time before I fire up Black Mirror.

Then the proof of the pudding will be in the eating !! lol

This is good news. Will MaG do a walkthrough for this game. No one can do a walkthrough as good as she does.

I don't think so, judith. Hopefully there will be a written walkthrough available elsewhere at some point.

If you want to see more peoples' impressions of Black Mirror 2017, there are some people playing it and posting at Adventuregamers. Check toward the end of ***this thread***.

Mostly they like the graphics, though they don't like the controls, and you can be killed because of confusing or fiddly controls.

One person playing the PS4 version mentioned long loading times, and a new loading screen every time you enter a different room. I don't know whether the problem is the same with the PC version, or whether it's an issue if you're using an SSD. One of the user reviews on the ***Steam page*** says 8 second load times between each room, but this may vary with computer or whether you have an SSD.

Requirements for Windows version listed at Steam:
Quote:

Minimum:
OS: Window 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64bit)
Processor: Intel Q9650 / AMD Phenom II X4 940
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GTX660 / Radeon 7870 - 2GB VRAM
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 11 GB available space

Recommended:
OS: Window 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64bit)
Processor: Intel Core i7 3770 3,9 Ghz / AMD FX-8350 4 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GTX960 / Radeon R9 290 - 4GB VRAM
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 11 GB available space

Speaking of system requirements, I saw this comment on the GOG forum about the game, for what it's worth:

Quote:
I've just started playing Black Mirror 4 and I can say the system requirements stated are way overstated. I'm playing on a 266 dual core pentium with 4 gigs of ram not 8 like what's stated to play. Although I do have an Nnvidea 2 gig card. So if anyone with a lower end system might just be able to play this game.


He said he had just started playing, so this judgment might be premature.

I just started the game and have dusted off a controller I haven't used in a long time - it's a Logitech and, so far, seems to be working ok.

I do notice a delay when some scenes change - roughly about 4 seconds - I guess that's when it is loading; even
though, as someone mentioned, the game doesn't indicate that's what it is doing.

Someone may have mentioned this - how does the game save? Maybe I missed something in the initial setup.

I bought the game through Amazon, they had a price of $23 for Prime users and I have to say the box it came in is a little better than most boxes for games I've bought.

Robert, someone else will have to tell you how you save the game. Flotsam's review does say this:

Quote:
You have complete freedom of movement in the game world and can save at will (except inside a vision). Choose “continue” in the menu to start from where you left off.


It's good that apparently you can save (almost) anywhere.

Flotsam is right. It's just that it took a while at the beginning for the "save"
option to not be grayed out, now I can save just about anywhere.

So far I'm enjoying the game but I am finding that it's sometime difficult to, shall we say
without giving anything away, to line up objects but I guess that will come.
