The Black Glove, a game from former Bioshock developers Day For Night Games, has failed to meet its Kickstarter goal, raising only $216,517 out of the $550,000 it needed, which, in keeping with Kickstarter's policy, will be returned to backers.

In its last Kickstarter update, Day For Night Games said it's working as hard as it can to keep The Black Glove from being canceled. However, it's not going to try for another crowdfunding campaign right away.

"We asked for the total we needed to guarantee that we could self-publish the game within a year with 6+ hours worth of content for $20," Day For Night said. "If we turned around immediately and asked for less without having secured the rest of the funds necessary, we wouldn’t be able to guarantee our Kickstarter backers that we could deliver the game."

Day For Night said that it's pursuing all options, and is beginning to talk to all the publishers that have reached out to it over the last few weeks. It added that if you want to help, you should sign up for email updates on its website and follow it on Twitter.

First announced in June, Day For Night describes The Black Glove as a surreal first-person game where the player's goal is to improve artists' work by altering the past. During the Kickstrater campaign, Day For Night said it would release the game on PC and PlayStation 4, and add VR support for both the Oculus Rift and Sony's Project Morpheus.
