The Black Glove is an eerie video game by developer Day For Night Games — composed almost entirely of developers previously responsible for aspects of the BioShock franchise — that tasks players with changing the past in order to improve the present. Players take on the role of “Curator” and must realign the creative influences of various creators. Once changed, these new influences are represented in both story and gameplay.
The Black Glove is scheduled to launch in late 2015 for Linux, PC, and Mac, and Day For Night Games is currently raising funds for the project via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
The Equinox has three creators in residence: the artist Marisol, the filmmaker Avery Arnault, and musical act Many Embers. Their work is in bad shape when you arrive and it’s taken a strange, metaphysical toll on the theatre. Time flows backward in areas. Weird things peek out of once-sealed doorways. Unearthly music plays.
As the latest Curator, it falls to you to get The Equinox back on its feet. It’s your job to change the creators’ past to improve their work in the present. How? The hosts Hazel and Cribbage explain that there are “certain games of skill and chance that allow us to interact with… what you might call ‘fourth-dimensional space.'”
