Blackhole Release/Preorder Date Announced, Video and Screenshots Released

By Dave Bricker, 1 year ago
It’s been a year since we’ve heard anything substantive from 1C about BLACKHOLE: Complete Edition. We are finally treated to new screenshots, a new video, and a confirmed release and preorder date.

Blackhole is a side scrolling puzzle platformer where you manipulate gravity and avoid deadly traps. There is no safety or security while playing the game. After crashing your spaceship inside the black hole, you will need to find your crew mates, fix your spaceship, and solve the dark mystery while dealing with the gravitationally oriented puzzles and a sadistic AI... and you play in the game as the ship’s coffee barista.

When the crew of the spaceship Endera is sucked into a black hole, it seems like the end. Fortunately, the ship crashes on Entity – an unidentified object resembling a planet. After the crash, the first member to wake up is the guy who makes coffee for the crew - you! There’s no one around and your only ally is Auriel, the ship’s computer’s sarcastic A.I. Together, you’ll need to come up with a plan to fix the spaceship, save the others and become heroes of planet Earth by closing the black hole once and for all. It won’t be an easy task, because the mysterious caves, lost cities, towering mountains and deep forests are full of tricky, gravity-defying puzzles and deadly traps.
The game features:

  • More than 130 levels in 6 dimensions to explore
  • Hundreds of secrets to discover and puzzles to solve
  • A fully-voiced sci-fi comedy with a cool soundtrack
  • Pixel-perfect controls

Blackhole: Complete Edition comes with the base game, playable game concept, challenge vault with online leaderboards, developer diaries, digital artbook, original soundtrack, hi-res wallpapers and collector cards. The game is scheduled to launch on August 8th. Xbox One preorders will be available on July 31st.
