The Black Glove, a narrative-driven first-person game in development by former BioShock developers including, is being shelved for the time being, designer Joe Fielder announced.
?Okay, bad news first: We?ve decided to shelve The Black Glove for now,? reads his post on develoepr Day for Night Games? website. ?Good news: The team members are all working on exciting new games.?
Said new games include a narrative/puzzle game by Wolf Island Games, Human Head?s iOS and Android release Lost Within, and Underworld Ascendant.
As for what?s put The Black Glove on pause, for now, Fielder cited a combination of their unsuccessful Kickstarter attempt at crowdfunding and, later, equally unsuccessful attempts at courting publishers behind closed doors at GDC and PAX East.
?We garnered some interest, but didn?t find the perfect glass slipper we were looking for and, understandably, began to lose key people to full-time work elsewhere.?
Day for Night Studios, an indie operation formed by former Irrational Games developers, unveiled their company and The Black Glove in October 2014, complete with endorsement from Ken Levine. Seeking $550,000 in budget, the Kickstarter campaign only managed to raise $216,517 by the time it closed out.
