Right, so The Black Glove is a surrealist first-person (sort of) adventure game set in a crumbling theatre called The Equinox. That I get. Everything else about the game frankly baffles me.
Perhaps realising that it's pretty tricky to explain a complex concept in a concise way through the medium of half a, developer Day For Night Games, made up from former developers, has released an in-game trailer.
Yeah, okay, I still don't really know what's going on. Still, you get a better sense of the game's surreal, nightmarish setting and glimpses of dark humour. As the Curator of The Equinox, your task is to help your artists and performers put on a show to remember; apparently you'll do this by wearing creepy gloves, playing 1980s arcade machines and fighting bipedal skull robots. Fair enough.
It's possible that the game's resolute, uncompromsing weirdness is behind a fairly disappointing showing on Kickstarter so far. As of this post The Black Glove's raised $121,000 from a goal of $550,000, with only ten days left to go. It would be a shame if it failed - I'm all for more oddness and originality in games, and The Black Glove looks to have that in spades.
