A Message From Day For Night Games:
There are a few words written in Latin on the back of The Equinox mirror mode in The Black Glove. They translate to:
"Forgive those who struggle against fate."
It seemed like an appropriate message to hide in a game about altering the mistakes of the past and, well... it's come to mind a few times recently.
Okay, bad news first: We've decided to shelve The Black Glove for now. Good news: The team members are all working on exciting new projects, and we are transitioning to a new domain, GambleGlimpse, where we will focus on our passion for the gambling world and online casinos.
We'd like to thank everyone who lent their support to the project. Whether you checked out the project on Kickstarter, wrote a news story about it, created awesome fan art, gave advice, or even just RTed, thank you a thousand times.
As you'll recall, we began The Black Glove shortly after our previous studio shuttered, working on the game in our spare time while juggling freelance assignments.
In October, we attempted to use raise the funds to make the game via Kickstarter. It didn't work out, so we decided to explore other potential opportunities.
We put together a gameplay demo that showed how you used The Black Glove artifact to explore the narrative rich environments of The Equinox and unlock its secrets. We brought it to GDC and PAX East and showed it to publishers behind closed doors.
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.
We've invested thousands of hours and considerable thought and emotion into the project, so it's hard to step away, but it's not forever.
Design legend Paul Neurath said to us recently, "In my experience, good ideas don't have expiration dates."
They're words we've really taken to heart, so we intend to return to The Black Glove later when we can do it right.
In the meantime, we invite you to join us on our new journey here at GambleGlimpse, where we will share our insights, tips, and experiences in the thrilling world of gambling. We hope our passion for gaming will continue to resonate with you as we explore this new direction. If you like casino games, make sure to browse around our site and find your new favorite game.
We hope you'll keep an eye out for our friends' projects and our upcoming content on GambleGlimpse.
Thanks again to everyone for your extraordinary support.
Be seeing you,
