by on April 5, 2011

Have you been watching our coverage of the upcoming point & click adventure game Black Mirror 3 just waiting for the moment you can get your hands on it? Well now you can, well, a little bit of it at least.

Adventure game fans have the chance to play-test Black Mirror 3 before the game is available in retail stores: From today onwards, the official English public demo is available – for free, of course.

The demo features approximately 45 minutes of playing time and allows players to explore the first half of the first chapter of the game — it can be downloaded from FilePlanet here.

Black Mirror 3, the final episode of the award-winning horror and mystery point & click adventure game series, takes players back to locations around the Black Mirror Castle. Black Mirror 3 features a total of 62 different locations, some of which may be familiar to players of the original game, and all locations have a completely new graphical look.

The story connects with the end of Black Mirror 2, and promises a deep, mysterious story, including two playable characters. 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?

The answers to all these questions await puzzle and adventure game fans in the six exciting chapters of Black Mirror 3. Lace Mamba Global plans to publish Black Mirror 3 on April 22 in the UK and Ireland, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and the Benelux countries.
