Description

In the year 1981, a series of horrifying murders happened at Black Mirror castle, the home of the Gordon family. Twelve years later and thousands of miles away Darren Michaels, a young physics student works in a rundown photo studio while visiting his mother during the holidays in Biddeford, a small town in Maine. Fuller, Darren's slimy, grumpy boss, is harassing him all the time, so he’s in a bad mood when he first meets Angelina, a beautiful girl from England. But just when things seems to brighten up, his mother lapses into a coma, Fuller is murdered and Angelina gets arrested as a suspect. While Darren investigates what happened, he discovers more questions than answers. Why did his mother lie about her income and who sent her money each month? Who is the stranger that spied on Angelina and now tries to get her sued for murder? All traces leads to Willow Creek, a small town in England…

Black Mirror II is a 3rd person point & click adventure. The player collects all kinds of objects, talks to NPCs, combines items to move the story forwards. There are also a couple of minigames (logic puzzles) to be solved. The player can choose between easy and normal difficulty. The riddles remain the same, but choosing the easy mode he gets additional hints in the diary on a step-by-step basis and the possibility to bypass the minigames. The user interface has some different features. You can scroll through the inventory items with the mouse wheel, search for hints in the detailed diary and the cursor shows if a combination is possible or not.
