The Black Glove was a fascinating-sounding idea from a group of former Irrational Games folks, a game about fiddling with the history and fates of troubled artists in a metaphysical theatre by using a magic glove and an arcade cabinet. Magic! What they showed looked weird and interesting and exciting but my heart sunk a little when developers Day for Night Games took to Kickstarter seeking $550,000 – it simply seemed too high for a niche idea, even one so sumptuously-realised.
Alas, the Kickstarter fell short. They kept working on it for a while, but sadly have now “shelved” the idea. Shelved, not cancelled – they hope to return to The Black Glove somehow, some day.
