Gamescom descends on Germany today (or perhaps the other way around), which means another week of new game announcements, trailers, screenshots, and details. Be sure to peruse our Screenshot Gallery for all the latest screens, but this is the page to see all the new trailers coming out of the show. Check back throughout the week for new additions!
Black Mirror III
Kicking off the week in fine fashion is dtp's Black Mirror III. Dubbed "The Final Chapter", the third installment of the dark mystery series puts players in the tortured shoes of young Darren, the returning protagonist from the last game. After watching Black Mirror Castle go up in flames, Darren is arrested as the suspected arson, and his detention is marked by "sleepless nights, nightmare-like visions, and the chilling specter of murder and death." Eventually set free by a mysterious benefactor, now Darren is alone to piece together what has happened, and try to understand the meaning behind his haunted dreams.
dtp was apparently just picking up steam, as the German publisher also unveiled a new Gray Matter trailer. The long-awaited new adventure from Jane Jensen needs no introduction at this point, but as the game approaches its is-it-almost-really-here due date, players have been starved of any in-game footage so far. This teaser still emphasizes the graphic novel-style cutscenes, but does introduce some of the actual environments around Dread Hill House, and offers some quick glimpses of the two playable characters, neurobiologist Dr. David Styles and street magician Sam Everett in action.
So Blonde: Back to the Island
Players will soon find themselves once again deserted on the pirate-infested, 17th century tropical island first seen in 2008's So Blonde. In a reimagined, alternative-reality storyline created exclusively for the Nintendo DS and Wii, Back to the Island sends teen heroine Sunny Blonde to the other side of the island this time, where this time she'll befriend the shady "One-Eye", encountering whole new obstacles and characters. The new trailer for the game highlights the way it's been tailored specifically to the unique Nintendo platforms for a familiar, yet all-new interactive experience.
