Black Mirror is a modern-day re-imagining of the 2003 point-and-click horror adventure game of the same name. The new game is developed by King ART games and published by THQ Nordic. It is a gothic horror adventure game that plays very similar to just about any Telltale game. The game has its share of puzzles and mini games all while going through tons of dialogue and exploring the environment for clues and interactables to move along the main plot.
The game starts with David Gordon as he journeys to his family's ancestral home in the Scottish Highlands. David has inherited the estate of a father that he truly never even knew. He arrives at the estate and meets an unfamiliar family and tries to piece together the mysteries surrounding his father's death. Very soon David learns that dark forces are at work and are most likely responsible for his father's death and they are trying to claim his own life if he can't uncover the truth that his family appears to be hiding.
The game does horror atmosphere quite well. The environments are dark and the lighting effects are quite nice. The game has a very serious way of telling the story with no room for even the slightest joke. The overall story is decent, but it is very slow moving. The main problem that I find with the story is that many of the characters feel so wooden. I don't really care much for any of them since they are not that interesting. The lead character is probably the worst in regards to personality.
