The Black Mirror demo

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
The Black Mirror demo features a spooky mansion, nasty nightmares, and plenty of puzzles to be solved. It will please fans of quest and adventure games, with rich graphics and an involved story. Most of the action centers on the story itself, yet we got a bit antsy while sitting through long narratives to get a grasp of exactly what's happening. That said, the story is engaging and will please more patient game players. Great textures and details make The Black Mirror visually stimulating, but characters are drawn awkwardly and movement is limited (although we should keep in mind the game was published in 2003, and graphics have improved since.) Creepy music kept us on the edge of our seat, but we would have liked a way to control game sound volume. Overall, a decent demo and one that will whet your appetite for more gameplay.

Developer's Description

After 12 years, Samuel Gordon returns to his ancestral home to attend the funeral of his grandfather. Haunted by visions of the past, Samuel realizes the present is beginning to haunt him as well. His sleep is disturbed by horrific nightmares--a mirror of the inexplicable murders that are occurring around the estate.

Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Samuel begins to trace the origins of his family history and realizes the solutions to the murders at present are linked to the deeds of the past. As Samuel delves deeper into the secrets of his history, he finds a series of mysterious artifacts, the final keys to unlock the truth. It is then that Samuel must confront the true face of evil in the reflection of his soul.
