by on February 18, 2011

Developers of the popular series of Adventure Games and publishers Lace Mamba Global, one of the UK’s leading independent computer and video game publishers, have released a new trailer for upcoming horror point & click sequel Black Mirror 3. The trailer, which is provided with English subtitles, will help new players who are unfamiliar with the epic backstory of the Black Mirror adventure game trilogy, as well as covering some of the latest events from Black Mirror 3. The video is hosted by Black Mirror 2 and 3 author Anne von Vaszary and goes into detail looking at the development process for the title, including new footage which was put together at Cranberry Production Studios in Hanover, Germany.

Black Mirror 3 will be the final episode in the award-winning horror and mystery point & click adventure game series, and will focus on the Black Mirror Castle – which featured in previous titles in the series. Featuring around 60 unique locations, many which should be familiar to players of the original game, but have received a complete graphical overhaul. Linking up with the ending from Black Mirror 2, the developers promise to deliver a deep and mysterious story, which includes two playable characters. Here is some background on the story, straight from the developers:

After his escape into the woods, Darren Michaels, one of the two main characters of both Black Mirror 2 and 3, stands with a burning torch in his hand, and turns to look back at the blaze engulfing Black Mirror Castle. Confusion reigns…

A short time later, he barely reacts as the handcuffs are closed on his wrists. The police have arrested Darren as their main suspect, and subject him to extensive questioning. But Darren is numb to the events occurring around him, and he withdraws into a deep emptiness.

After three weeks of detention – and tormented by sleepless nights, nightmare-like visions, and the chilling specter of murder and death – Darren is set free. Darren is now alone. He must try to find out what has happened, and lift the veil on his clouded past. What did he really see with those jet black eyes, what does the nightmare mean? Who is the mysterious person who posted bail and set him free? What dark force lies behind the tangled web of riddles, mysterious secrets and entwined relationships?

These mysteries will be answered in Black Mirror 3, which spans across six episodes. Fans of puzzle game such as the Professor Layton series and Adventure Game addicts alike should keep an eye on this intruiging title.

Lace Mamba Global will publish Black Mirror 3 in April 2011 in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and the Benelux countries. Other global releases are currently in negotiation with different publishers.
