Imagine this: You're a spaceship crew member on a suicide mission. The task is to close a dangerous black hole in the universe. But unfortunately something went wrong and the spaceship fell beyond the event horizon. So every member of the crew ended up inside a black hole, including you. But you survived. And your task is to finish the mission.
Stranded on a place called Entity, you have to collect selfburns to repair the spaceship, find all missing crew members and reveal a dark mystery about this mission. It may sound easy, but shortly after the crash you'll see that it's not exactly a small task.
Yes! All the dialogues are voiced and there are a lot of dialogues! But don't worry, if you prefer jumping over story, you can always select the "Less Dialogues" mode and enjoy the game with fewer distractions. We also added a mode for streamers which cuts almost 90% of all dialogues, making it possible for streamers to record gameplay without spoiling story too much to others!
We did our best to reinvent all the systems which BLACKHOLE already had for the newest consoles. We revamped the main menu, made massive optimizations to the code and also on the graphics side, added new effects, story, levels, smashed some really awful bugs and rewrote the whole PC version to make it fully work on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
We really hope that you will enjoy the results of our two year effort during your gameplay. As we wanted to make the best gameplay experience possible on all platforms, a lot of the changes were implemented back into Steam and GOG versions. On August 8th, 2017 we are going to sync all available platform versions between each other. That way everyone will get all features.

BLACKHOLE was made in GameMaker: Studio 1.4. You should know that YoYo Games is working really hard to bring best games to the market. Including our game. Recently, they released GameMaker Studio 2, but our game is using only cutting edge version of GameMaker Studio 1. Be sure to the check out features of GMS2 though! It's an amazing tool.
Implementation of such a thing would take a lot of time and money above our basic production goal. We are going to be 100% honest here, we weren't expecting so many requests for a level editor. BLACKHOLE isn't ready for custom levels. We are really sorry, but the Steam Workshop integration and Level Editor will not be added to BLACKHOLE.
During the development we have been thinking about making a co-op mode for two players. When we did several tests with some levels, we discovered that our gravity rules are great mainly in singleplayer mode. With that said, we are not planning any implementation of co-op mode. On the other hand, we released Challenge Vault, which is a special online mode allowing everyone to send their times for each level and compete between friends.
No. All you have to do is to be online during the activation and then you can go offline. You have to be online if you want to send your times and achievements to the leaderboards.
