While it’s not related to the hit Netflix series of the same name (it’s actually a reboot of the 2004 point-and-click series), Black Mirror is set to release next week on November 28. In order to give players a taste of what to expect from the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC title, publisher THQ Nordic put out a new gameplay trailer. The title is developed by King Art Games (who previously did The Dwarves and The Book of Unwritten Tales), and tells an all new story that is different from the original trilogy.
“We have developed a new interpretation that both retains the strengths of the original games,” said THQ Nordic Producer Martin Kreuch. “[It] 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.”

For more on the game, check out the publisher’s description:
Scotland, 1926. Following the death of his father, David Gordon visits his ancestral home for the first time in his life. A life that is soon threatened by the dark secrets that claimed the sanity of many Gordons before him. Blood is not always thicker than water.
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.
- 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 releases November 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
