The Day For Night Games studio has pulled the plug on The Black Glove video game, after a disappointing Kickstarter campaign and inability to bring a publisher onboard.

The "eerie, surrealistic, first-person game experience" from several former developers at Irrational Games, which brought us BioShock, had some gamers interested. However, the Kickstarter campaign collected just $216,517 of a $550,000 fundraising campaign - with other "potential opportunities" also falling flat.

"We'd like to thank everyone who lent their support to the project," according to a statement posted on the Day For Night Games website. "Whether you checked out the project on Kickstarter, wrote a news story about it, created awesome fan art, gave advice, or even just RTed, thank you a thousand times."

Even though development on The Black Glove has stopped, the development team is involved in other projects.
