THE FUTURE OF THE BLACK GLOVE

Hey everyone, 

Huge thanks for all your support this last month! 

The entire team sincerely appreciates your backing, feedback, and help spreading the word. 

We’d also like to sincerely thank our “extended family,” such as our stellar voice cast Yuri Lowenthal, Tara Platt, Fryda Wolff, and Oliver Vaquer; BioShock Infinite’s BAFTA award winning music director Jim Bonney; Well Liked PR’s Rachel Kane; video editors Eddie Doty and Bill Gardner; lawyer Michael Cavaretta; and many more. 

So, what’s next for The Black Glove? 

The short answer is that we mean to fight like hell to keep it from being cancelled. We believe in the game and you all have shown you do, too. 

We’ve received a lot of questions on whether we planned on immediately starting up another fundraising campaign for The Black Glove at a lower fundraising goal. 

As you know, we’ve been funding The Black Glove entirely out of pocket for months while juggling freelance work. We don’t have angel investors or a publisher. 

We asked for the total we needed to guarantee that we could self-publish the game within a year with 6+ hours worth of content for $20. If we turned around immediately and asked for less without having secured the rest of the funds necessary, we wouldn’t be able to guarantee our Kickstarter backers that we could deliver the game. 

But, we’re pursuing all options. We’re beginning to talk to all the publishers who have reached out over the last few weeks. We have a few other ideas, as well. 

It may be weeks or months before we have news to report, but we intend to be back with more as soon as possible. 

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?! 

We’re asking all of our backers and fans to head on over to our web-site and sign up e-mail updates and follow us on Twitter. We'll keep you up on all future developments about the game. 

And if you’re in the game industry, we have a bevy of talented developers who are available for freelance while we sort out next steps. (Contact joe at dayfornightgames dot com for details.) 

Thanks again for everything! More soon!

Best, 

Joe

      As others have said, I am hopeful this game will see the light of day. I will be lining up to purchase it when it does.

      I would encourage you to try again after the first of the year, when 'entertainment budgets' free up a little after the holidays. More pictures and maybe even a rough demo, and a little more detail from the very beginning of the campaign, would help a lot, as well.

      Sorry the funding didn't make it. I hope you guys try it again later.

      From my perspective, I think this Kickstarter just didn't get enough exposure when it first launched. When I first heard of it, it was already in its last week!

      I'm really sorry you didn't make it. =( This is exactly the type of game I want to see get made.It's a super interesting concept made by a team with a stellar track record.

      Whatever path you have to go down now to get the financing you need I'll be there to back you or purchase when the game is ready.

      Good luck everyone at Day For Night!!

      A sad day, but you need to keep it going. I believe with The Black Glove the proof will be in the playing, not the pitch, which is a bit of a bugger for a promising Kickstarter campaign but that can't really be helped. Anything we, or I, can do to help, just ask.

      it's an amazing game concept, and one that hopefully still see the light of day.

      Hope you guys try again. Scale back the game a bit and lower the required funding!

      I'm really sorry you didn't reach your goal but I'm confidant that such a great game will find a home somewhere. I look forward to playing the game whenever it is completed!
