Day For Night Games stops work on The Black Glove

"We intend to return to The Black Glove later when we can do it right"

Day For Night Games has announced it's stopping work on its first title, The Black Glove, after the game failed to find funding through Kickstarter or a publisher.

"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," the studio's Joe Fielder said in a statement.

The game was originally announced in June 2014 after former Irrational employees Fielder, Chad Kingand and Robb Waters formed Day For Night Games. A Kickstarter campaign launched on October 7, 2014 but made just $216,517 of its $550,000 goal. The team also tried to find a publisher at GDC and PAX East, but failed to secure a deal.

"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."
